Liverpool defender Joe Gomez has hailed Mohamed Salah as “relentless” after he scored his 50th goal in just 65 appearances  for the Reds.

Salah brushed off criticism of his form this season by scoring twice in a 4-0 Champions League demolition of Red Star Belgrade on Tuesday.

Gomez said; “Fifty goals is unbelievable. I’m trying to get my first one,” he told Liverpool’s media channel. “It’s special, Mo’s a special player.

“It just showed that he carries on, he’s relentless with his pursuit for goals, and that’s what makes him a top player, and hopefully he continues.”

Liverpool top Champions League Group C with two wins from their three matches so far, including victory over Paris Saint-Germain but defeat at Napoli.
