Watford defender Miguel Britos eager to forget Liverpool thrashing

Mohamed Salah took the lead in the European Golden Shoe standings with his four goals against Watford at the weekend.

Liverpool attacker Mohamed Salah has hit dizzy heights since his summer move to Anfield and comparisons to footballing great Lionel Messi are far too premature for most, but perhaps there is some sort of discussion to be had.

So how does Salah compare to the five-time Ballon d'Or victor this season?

Salah, 25, was untouchable, dancing around the Hornets defence and leaving Miguel Britos planted on the floor before firing low into the bottom corner for Liverpool's first.

In less than hospitable conditions as swirling snow and a freezing wind blew through Anfield, the Liverpool fans at least had Salah to warm their spirits as he took his tally for an incredible debut season at Liverpool to 36 in all competitions.

"If that is achieved by me scoring goals, even better".

So, do you think Salah is taking the pressure off of Kane, or adding to it?

"It's just about defending well as a team because you know you will create chances".

"They are both very important for their team, so it's fair enough that one of those two would win it".

Lawrence Lyons, Spokesperson for BoyleSports commented: "Mo Salah's performances continue to catch the eye and the goal frenzy against Watford means the Premier League record of Alan Shearer and Andy Cole is now within his reach".

"We tried to play a strong formation with three centre-backs to protect from this kind of situation, but today it was not possible". "The level is very high".
