Mohamed Salah has taken the Premier League by storm this season.
His fearsome goalscoring reputation is growing by the week, and he only added to it on Sunday netting another world-class goal during the Reds’ 4-0 hammering of Bournemouth.
Picking up the ball on the right-hand channel from a perfectly weighted Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain pass, Salah had a lot to do to beat Asmir Begovic, but beat him he did after escaping the attentions of Charlie Daniels and co. to arrow the ball into the bottom corner.
After the game fans and pundits alike were simply stunned by what had been achieved by the former Roma man, with this being his 20th goal in all competitions this term, putting him among some of the greats of the club such as Anfield legend Ian Rush.
Mohamed Salah becomes the first Liverpool player to get 20 goals in a season before Christmas since Ian Rush in 1986-87 (with thanks to @ged0407).

After the goal, however, it seems supporters were not the only ones gobsmacked by just what’s been achieved.
Following The Egyptian’s strike his teammate Chamberlain’s face was a picture of amazement, perhaps summing up more than words ever could just what kind of form the 25-year-old is in.
