Atlético Madrid look a fearsome looking bunch honed in the image of their manager Diego Simeone. This was our biggest game in the group stages of the Champions League and we may have even been the underdog but we won. We went from comfortable [thanks to goals from Mo and Naby] to hanging in the ropes after they’d pulled it back to two-all. Maybe with Atlético being reduced to ten men gave us a lift because we were the better side second half and deserved the win that Mo’s penalty gave us. This nasty bunch will be at Anfield in a couple of week’s time.
It can’t happen often. When someone scores a hattrick they’re usually talk of the town but after Liverpool’s 5-0 win at Watford it was all about Mo. Sure, the away end sang about Bobby and they sang about Sadio as well but it was Mo Salah who dominated the headlines. The best in the world at the moment? Probably! However, the word to describe his form at the moment doesn’t appear in any dictionary.
