Mohamed Salah scored an outstanding hat-trick during his side’s 4-1 victory over Bournemouth on Saturday afternoon but the winger didn’t celebrate his goals.
The Egyptian’s goals in the weekend helped the Merseyside club to climb to the top of the league with just one point above champions Man City.

Salah’s great performance helped him to attain 10 league goals so far this season and has now drawn level with Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp, who was pleased with his side’s performance in the weekend, has refused to make any comment on Salah’s incident.
“I didn’t really see it, to be honest,” Klopp said.
“I’m not sure – if he didn’t celebrate I cannot say anything about it because I didn’t see it.”
“I was not for one second worried about Salah performing.”
The 26-year-old, who scored 32 Premier League goals last season, had been criticised by some people this season insisting that the Egyptian might be a ‘One-Season Wonder’.
“For him to prove again another 41-goal season [all competitions] – everybody would struggle,” Klopp added.
“I don’t know who could have scored the goals he did – it was outstanding. All credit to him, it was great and now we will carry on.”
Salah has refused a man of the match award and instead decided to hand it over to his teammate James Milner – who was making his 500th Premier League appearance.
“I have to congratulate him for his amazing career,” the Egypt international said.
“He deserved it today. I hope we’ll win something together, I will not take it.”
