Mo Salah's goal vs Porto explained stage-by-stage
Reacting first - as the jet-heeled wideman often does - Salah took one touch to steady himself somewhat with his weaker right after James Milner's effort had struck the woodwork,
That touch saw the ball bounce up invitingly in the six-yard box, and while others may have opted to merely head it goalwards, Liverpool's 29-goal hitman remained cool.
After seeing the onrushing Jose Sa come out to close him down, Salah nonchalantly flicked it out of reach of the despairing Porto keeper.
He wasn't done there though. Salah's impeccable close control afforded him the chance to take yet another touch with his head to steady himself further.
It was now just Alex Telles keeping Salah from doubling Liverpool's advantage, and the Reds forward made light of the Porto defender's last-ditch lunge as he calmly stuck it in the unguarded corner. Porto 0-2 Liverpool. The Portuguese side's defence was truly bamboozled and Salah was up to 30 goals for the season.
