Liverpool ace Mohamed Salah 'is giving the Premier League side the Luis Suarez confidence' according to the club captain after his scintillating four-goal haul this weekend.
Salah, 25, took his league tally to 28 for the season and 36 in 41 games across all competitions after the dismantling of the Hornets on Saturday.
Now his incredible scoring rate has quickly been compared to the FC Barcelona forward, Suarez who scored 33 goals in his final season at Anfield.
The Reds narrowly missed out on the Premier League title to Manchester City in that memorable campaign and now their skipper Jordan Henderson claims the in-form Egyptian is brewing the same kind of confidence the Uruguayan did amongst the squad.
"They are both fantastic players in their own right and you can't compare them," Henderson after the game, as reported by Reuters. "They are different players. I know they score a lot of goals and both work hard off the ball but it is very difficult to make that comparison.
"Luis moved on to Barcelona and is doing fantastically well. He is a fantastic player who I was privileged to play with. But Mo this season has been unbelievable. Absolutely unbelievable. He is doing it every week, without fail.
"As a team, if we work as hard as we possibly can, Mo (is) going to finish it in the final third. We had that with Luis. You know when you are walking out there are so many goals out there for you."
