Video: Mohamed Salah makes it 2-0 to Liverpool after converting penalty

After the ball struck Yves Bissouma's hand, Mohamed Salah converted the penalty to make it 2-0 to Liverpool.

Salah has not had a great game for Liverpool so far. He's been snatching at chances and the ball hasn't been sticking to his feet like usual.

Just before the penalty was awarded, Luis Diaz made an unbelievable run and slotted in Salah, all he had to do was hit the target and it would've likely went in.

However, Salah snatched at the ball and it went wide of the post. Luckily, right after that, Naby Keita picked up the ball on the edge of the box and struck it goal bound.

The ball hit Bissouma's hand and Mike Dean had no other option but to award a penalty to Liverpool.

Salah stepped up to take it and he blasted it right down the middle of Robert Sanchez's goal, making it 2-0 to the Reds.
