Liverpool 2-0 Chelsea: Mohamed Salah tops ratings

Mohamed Salah celebrates
Mohamed Salah is joint top of the Premier League scoring charts on 19 goals, alongside Manchester City's Sergio Aguero

It was one of the goals of the season.

Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah cut in from the right and, 25 yards out, smashed a venomous shot into the top-left corner, out of the reach of Chelsea keeper Kepa Arrizabalaga.

The strike sealed a 2-0 home victory, ensuring the Reds remain two points clear of Manchester City at the top of the Premier League, although City - who won 3-1 at Crystal Palace earlier - have a game in hand.

Unsurprisingly, the goal - as well as an all-round impressive performance - was enough to earn the Egyptian the man-of-the-match award in the eyes of BBC Sport readers.
