Mohamed Salah's dazzling displays with Fiorentina continue as he scored the winner in Sunday’s 1-0 win over Inter Milan, bringing his Serie A tally to three goals in four games and giving the Viola their first victory at Giuseppe Meazza in almost 15 years.

Egypt ace Salah, who joined Fiorentina last month, came off the bench three minutes before the break, replacing Senegalese forward Khouma Babacar who suffered a hamstring problem.

On target against Tottenham in a Europa League game on Thursday, the pacey winger scored with a follow-up effort.

Salah made a great rebound for Manuel Pasqual's cross that was parried by Inter Milan keeper Samir Handanovic, blasting the ball under the bar to help his side earn a precious away victory.

Fiorentina’s last win at Giuseppe Meazza was registered in May 2000.

Salah joined Fiorentina on loan from English Premier League leaders Chelsea in the winter transfer window until the end of the season, with an option to make the deal permanent. He left Stamford Bridge after failing to book a regular place in the Blues' squad under coach Jose Mourinho.

The 22-year-old scored his first goal for Fiorentina and created the second during the 3-1 win over Sassuolo, before adding his second Serie A goal in the 1-1 draw with Torino last week.

Fiorentina lie fifth in the Serie A table with 42 points, 15 behind leaders Juventus.
