Jurgen Klopp’s side have confirmed that Claudio Ranieri’s first match will be a tense one, with Mohamed Salah, Mane, and Roberto Firmino hat-trick having a comfortable success.
Mohamed Salah’s goal was undoubtedly the choice of the crowd as he made his way through the sea of Hornets’ opponents before wrapping up a fine left-footed effort, and the Egyptian set his new record for the strike.
Salah had previously scored in his last 7 games in all competitions, and his strike at Vicarage Road saw him score in the eighth consecutive game for the first time in Europe’s top five leagues.
Meanwhile, Mane’s first game – assisted by Salah – was Senegal’s 100th striker in the Premier League, seeing him become the third African player behind Salah and Didier Drogba to reach that level.
The Reds are temporarily promoted to the Premier League following Saturday’s victory and are now preparing for Tuesday’s Champions League match against Atletico Madrid
