Video: Mohamed Salah fires Liverpool into early lead after amazing touch and finish to leave Newcastle helpless

With less than three minutes played between Liverpool and Newcastle in this afternoon’s Premier League encounter, the Reds had an early lead thanks to the prolific Mohamed Salah.

Sadio Mane floated a cross into the box, which was cleared away to the far post, just as it looked impossible for Liverpool to make something out of the moment, up stepped Salah…

Salah swivelled away from Matt Ritchie as he expertly controlled the ball with a wonderful first touch, the Egyptian then proceeded to hammer the ball into the net whilst he was still turning.
