Mohamed Salah has scored some sensational goals during his spell with Liverpool but his stunning solo effort against Manchester City on Sunday afternoon will be remembered for many years to come.
The Egyptian forward netted put the Reds 2-1 up with 15 minutes left on the clock thanks to a moment of sheer invidiual brilliance.
Sadio Mane had broken the deadlock on the hour-mark before Phil Foden equalised 10 minutes later.
But Salah further cemented his status as one of the world’s finest footballers after dancing through the City defence before finishing past Ederson.
“He is a different level, Mo Salah,” Sky Sports co-commentator Gary Neville after watching a replay of Salah’s 101st Premier League goal.

If Messi scores this, people will call for the Puskas Award, this is genuinely breathtaking.
What a privilege having Salah in the Premier League.

That is incredible.
Have we just witnesses one of the Premier League’s all-time great goals? Quite possibly.
De Bruyne earns a point for Man City
Sadly for Liverpool, though, it wasn’t enough to seal all three points for the hosts.
Kevin De Bruyne ensured that City left Anfield with a share of the spoils thanks to an 81st-minute equaliser.
But take nothing away from Salah’s sensational solo goal.
An early contender for the Premier League’s Goal of the Season award, there’s no doubt about that.
