Monsieur Lloris has found his head shoved in the stocks and pelted from several angles with fruit of questionable freshness in recent weeks, due to some fairly high-profile in-play choices made, but yesterday he was back doing the du pain et du beurre for which he earns the weekly packet, and it was a gentle reminder of why we fell in love with the chap in the first place.

Mohamed Salah bagged four goals as Liverpool put last weekend's defeat to Man Utd behind them and demolish Watford 5-0 at Anfield.

It took only four minutes for the outstanding Salah to open the scoring, after a dazzling dribble through the Watford defence.

The Egyptian then put the hosts 2-0 up just before the break, netting from an Andy Robertson cross.

I think Mohamed Salah took offense at last week's performance and result.

Salah's long been threatening to do this to some poor opponent. We've seen a ton of one- or two-goal games, but no hat-tricks. It's been the consistency rather than the flurries, scoring in most games, only going two games without scoring once this season.
