Liverpool defender said that winger amuses the team’s players as much as he amuses the fans, explaining the Egyptian’s remarkable effect on the team.

After a stunning performance against Watford that helped him net four goals and assist in one, Salah is now leading the golden boot race with 28 goals, four goals above second-placed Harry Kane.

“I think it’s indescribable. The goals he brings are invaluable and he’s just so good to play with,” Joe Gomez told Liverpool’s official website. “He complements the team so well, and Bobby and Sadio, they deserve all the credit as well.”

The young Egyptian was able to equal Liverpool legend Robbie Fowler’s best goal scoring season on Saturday, one of many other records he was able to set.

“It’s a pleasure to play with him, especially behind him on that side feeding him the ball – and he does what he does. He’s special to watch and I think we enjoy it on the pitch as much as everyone else does,” Gomez added.

As the club’s attacking trio Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino now posses a total of 73 goals between them, Gomez made sure that he praised the harmony between all three players and how this balance helps the team improve.

“They all complement each other so well. That front three, anyone in the world would fear them,” he explained. “They all show their quality in so many different ways and just the fact that Salah has so many assists as well shows that he’s bringing more than just his goals. The whole team has got so much quality and depth – it’s a great side,” he added.
