DF James Milner, 7 - Took one for the team by playing right-back on his 500th Premier League appearance but, despite that, made it two good performances in a matter of days for the 32-year-old.
An absolute class act and a wonderful tribute from Salah to his teammate.
Salah then completed his hat-trick when he took it around Begovic, took his time, and completed a fantastic afternoon for himself and Liverpool. He has been published by Curzon Ashton FC, Late Tackle, Manchester City FC, The Mirror, Read Man City and Manchester Evening News.
Salah's "haters" were nowhere to be seen after he scored the superb hat-trick as Twitter turned into a tribute website for the "one season wonder". "It's probably Manchester City's hardest game this weekend so Liverpool have to make sure they win", Merson told Sky Sports.
The forward, now levelled with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang atop the league scorers' chart with 10 goals, is only bettered by Barcelona Lionel Messi [45 goals] who has scored the most goals in Europe top five leagues since the beginning of last season.
DF Joel Matip, 6 - Tougher tests than this will come for Matip with Napoli and Manchester United on the horizon and Dejan Lovren still out with concussion.
In attack, the usual suspects are back after being partially rested during the midweek. Booked in the 70th minute after making a number of small fouls throughout the game.
