Match-winning Mo Salah increased his goal tally and stretched his lead at the top of the goalscoring charts as Liverpool rose to third.

The Reds continued their attack in the fight to retain the Premier League title.

Two 3-1 wins in a matter of days saw Liverpool move up the table again.

Salah was instrumental in the win over the Hammers on Sunday.

A brace from the Egyptian helped his side overcome a confident West Ham, a team who prior to today, hadn’t lost a game in five.

VAR Decisions Against Salah

Speaking after the game, the Reds top scorer expressed his disliking of the controversial VAR, he said: I don’t like VAR.

Just my opinion, it kills the game, the joy of football.

So far this season Salah has been on the wrong end of VAR decisions on three occasions.

The first came as he was adjudged to be offside against Sheffield United.

One of the most contentious ones came at the AMEX Stadium as his opening goal against Brighton was chalked off for offside as the Video Assistant Referee found that Salah’s toe was just offside.

I don’t want to complain about it or get fined, but it’s just my opinion – I don’t like it. He added.

In their 3-1 win over Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham, a handball in the build-up to Salah’s gone was ruled out by VAR.

As Eric Dier and Roberto Firmino jostled for the ball, both players handled with the former making the first contact with his hand but Martin Atkinson ruled the handball came from the Brazilian.

Massive Fixtures Ahead

His brace against the Hammers saw a six game Premier League goal drought come to an end for the Reds.

A welcome sign with a big month ahead with Manchester City on the horizon.

Pep Guardiola’s side have hit a good run of form of recent with the Citizens firing five past West Brom last week and looking a formidable force.

Both sides go into the game in a good run of form and sets up an interesting spectacle as City sit four points clear of Liverpool.
