Salah putting Noble down back in week one is easily the goal of the season. 

I'll wager a 20 that what ever else we see this season we won't see anybody else put two balls in the back of the net on the same touch.

I don't understand the obsession with long distance goals. I thought the 3rd goal was better. The build up play, the movement, two dummies and a cool one touch finish. Sublime!

this one is for the assist more than the finish - Iniesta :)

Immediately reminded me of this one.

One of my favourite goals this year is for a very particular reason. It’s Salah’s tap in against Southampton after they hit the bar with a free kick. He sprints in to beat another charging Liverpool attacker to the ball.

The reason is down to my Brazil obsession. Particularly the 82 side.

In the 82 World Cup, against Argentina, Eder cracks the underside of the bar with a free kick. Zico and Serginho race at it for the tap in. Salah’s really reminded me of it.

Seemed like the only place to post this. Never celebrate prematurely! ;)

Not sure, but I think because it's a penalty shoot out it should count as a miss.
