Mohamed Salah celebrating one of his many goals

In a gameweek that saw just 4 games being played out owing to clashing FA Cup fixtures, Liverpool hosted Watford. Jurgen Klopp's men needed a bit of revitalising after their defeat to Manchester United, and Watford proved to be the perfect energy drink - as the Reds, led by the unstoppable Mohamed Salah simply steamrolled Javi Garcia's men.

Mo Salah continued to thrive as he scored his first ever hat-trick in Liverpool colours and then scored another. He also assisted Roberto Firmino's goal - the only other goal of the game. Just can't keep him out of the game, eh?

The deadlock was broken as early as the 4th minute as Sadio Mane released Salah down the right flank as the Egyptian nonchalantly did the rest to score his first of the game and 24th of the league season - A goal that helped him overtake Harry Kane's tally of 24.

Former Chelsea star, Salah, then went on to score in minutes 43, 77, and 85 to utterly torment the visitors, who never quite looked like they had a chance against this whirlwind Liverpool side. Without further ado, here is a look at 5 key talking points from the game:

#5 Andrew Robertson continues to impress

Andrew Robertson(R) set up Mohamed Salah's 2nd goal of the night

24-year-old continued to impress in his first Liverpool season as he was trusted with a spot in the starting 11 yet again - in an ever-changing Liverpool defence line, Robertson has now made 9 consecutive Premier League stars - and the Scottish left-back ensured he didn't disappoint.

His performance, yet again, seemed to dispell any and all notions that claim that he isn't completely confident donning the famous Liverpool jersey just yet. The Scotsman made 64 touches on the ball, while also making 58 passes at an accuracy of 84%.

More importantly, it was his excellent cross across the face of goal that allowed Salah to score his 2nd goal of the game, as he marauded down the left flank before unleashing the perfect ball to the incoming Egyptian.

On the whole, it was a good game for the 24-year-old, who will look to continue putting in impressive performances in a bid to finish the season on a high.
