Liverpool star Mohamed Salah named UCL Player of the Week with 2 goals & 2 assists against former club Roma.

Mo Salah struck twice against his former club as Liverpool took command of their Champions League semi-final against Roma, despite late lapses in a 5-2 first-leg win on another memorable Anfield night.

The PFA’s Player of the Year hit a stylish first-half double – taking his goal tally in a stunning season to 43 – before Sadio Mane (56) and Roberto Firmino (61, 69) scored to put a first Champions League final since 2007 firmly in sight.

Liverpool had been imperious in Jurgen Klopp’s 150th game in charge but Edin Dzeko pounced with nine minutes remaining and Diego Perotti converted an 85th-minute penalty to shift the mood and give Roma unlikely hope.
