Snow Salah: Liverpool forward scores 4 in win over Watford

LIVERPOOL, England (AP) Mohamed Salah scored four goals and set up another in Liverpool's 5-0 victory over Watford in the Premier League on Saturday, cementing his status as the most prolific forward in Europe's leading competitions.

The Egypt international's first hat trick for Liverpool took his tally to 36 in his first season at the club, including 28 in the league.

Not far behind is Roberto Firmino, who marked the best scoring season of his career with his 23rd in all competitions against a Watford side which presented little challenge. It was an exquisite backheel from Salah's cross.
