Steven Gerrard was full of praise for Liverpool ace Mohamed Salah following Liverpool’s demolition job of Serie A giants Roma in the Champions League semifinal on Tuesday.

Salah produced one of his best Champions League performances as he scored two and made two for his teammates, in a commanding 5-2 first leg result.

Roma were only able to score their goals after Egyptian was substituted in the 74th minute

After the game Gerrard hailed the 25-year-old former Roma forward, telling Liverpool’s official website: “He is in the form of his life.”

“It’s difficult to compare him to [Cristiano] Ronaldo and [Lionel] Messi because they have done it for so long and they have been consistent year in, year out,” added Gerrard.
“But without a shadow of a doubt he’s the best player on the planet right now.”

However, Chelsea great – Frank Lampard who himself have been a candidate for the prestigious individual award added;
“It will be hard for him to break the group that is Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo. It will take a lot to do that. ‘But if he takes Liverpool to the Champions League title, that could well do it.”
