Liverpool's Senegalese star has four goals in as many games to start this Premier League season and has seemingly taken the spotlight away from Salah after the Egyptians record-breaking 2017-18 campaign.

First-half goals from Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino had put the Premier League leaders on course and they ultimately secured a hard-fought 2-1 win at the King Power Stadium on Saturday.

Liverpool have won their first four league games of the season for the first time since 1990, to stay on top on 12 points along with Chelsea.

Alisson lost the ball to Kelechi Iheanacho, whose cross then led to a Rachid Ghezzal goal.

Although you wouldn't know it if you caught Saturday's game against Leicester City.

'Ridiculous': Ronaldo's agent fumes over Player of the Year snub
Ronaldo was not in Monte Carlo to collect his Forward of the Season award and the player's agent, Jorge Mendes, believes the snub was "ridiculous".

The good news? It was in a 2-1 win at Leicester City and not in the UCL final.

The London side had struggled to break down a stubborn Bournemouth outfit at Stamford Bridge but goals from substitute Pedro and Eden Hazard in the last 20 minutes secured a 2-0 win.

Klopp was furious on the touchline with Alisson's decision-making, but insisted all his players need to think better on their feet.

I will not be arrogant to say 'I'll keep doing (dribbles)', we have to learn from mistakes.

It was clear from last week that I thought it would happen.
