Liverpool beat Watford 5-0 in the Premier League this weekend and their summer signing Mo Salah was once again the star of the game.
Salah scored four out of Liverpool’s five goals, taking his goal tally for the season to 28 in the English Premier League.
The Reds’ forward had a kind of an average start to the campaign but since then he has rapidly picked up pace and is now even being compared to Lionel Messi.
And this performance of Salah is a huge contrast to Manchester United’s January signing Alexis Sanchez.
With his contract set to expire the Chilean forced a move out of Arsenal and joined the Reds Devils. Even though his arrival created a lot of buzz amongst the fans but Sanchez has not been able to live up to all that hype.
In fact, he has been performing well below his benchmark and slowly a small section of the United fans are having the feeling that Sanchez is not cut out for the job.
When Liverpool’s Mo Salah came up with a magical performance against Watford on Saturday, Alexis Sanchez, on the other hand, was on the substitutes bench as Manchester United took on Brighton in their FA Cup clash that very same night.
And the Liverpool fans were quick to point out the difference between the two forwards and some of them even took to trolling the Chilean international.

This season Mohammad Salah has scored twice as many PL goals (28) than Lukaku (14)
And 1 more goal than Martial, Lingard, Rashford, Mata and Sanchez combined (27)
I’d like to hear a Mourinho rant about that

To think that Sanchez was on an almost similar form as Salah just last season. Now he's the king of dispossessed stats. Life comes at you fast

Jose Mourinho has maintained that Alexis Sanchez is just needing time to settle down at Manchester United and he will once again reach his peak next season but a lot of pundits and fans are of the view that the forward is well past his peak days and Arsenal have pulled out an ace by swapping him with Alexis Sanchez.
