Egyptian winger Mohamed Salah scored for the third straight Serie A game as AS Roma secured a comprehensive 5-1 win over Carpi on Saturday. 

Salah easily tapped in into an empty net after Francesco Totti's shot following a one-on-one was parried by the keeper into his path six minutes after the break.

The 23-year-old opened his account with Roma during the 2-2 draw with Sassuolo in the fourth matchday of the Serie A last week. He netted his second goal against Sampdoria in midweek.

Roma reignited their league campaign with a  drubbing of the newly-promoted Carpi.

Roma coach Rudi Garcia was already under pressure after picking up just one point in two matches against Sassuolo and Sampdoria.

But his side responded with goals from Kostas Manolas, Miralem Pjanic, Gervinho, Mohamed Salah and Lucas Digne.

Gervinho, who hadn't scored in nearly a year, also hit the post.

Marco Borriello scored against his old club for Carpi, which also had Ryder Matos' penalty saved by Morgan De Sanctis.

The only sour note for Roma was the sight of Francesco Totti and Seydou Keita going off injured.

Roma moved provisionally third ahead of Sunday's fixtures.

Juventus visits Napoli later, with both sides looking for their second win of the season.
