Mo Salah said he has been working on improving his weak right foot after netting a brilliant double in Liverpool's 2-0 Premier League win over Watford on Saturday.

The Egypt wizard opened the scoring in the first half when he finished off a lethal counter attack, cutting inside his marker and planting a right-foot curler into the far corner.

He ensured the win in stoppage time with a superb back-heel at the far post as Liverpool continued their relentless march towards the Premier League title.

Salah, a left footer, netted three goals in a row with his right foot for the first time in his career, having also found the net from the tightest of angles in Liverpool's midweek Champions League clash away to Austria's Salzburg.

"I'm practising my right foot! I had good luck in the first goal," the 27-year-old told BT Sport after the win over Watford.

"It was a counter-attack, Sadio played a good ball and I think I score in the right time."

"We played against a tough team today. I think they should be [in a] better position than what they are. Hopefully we keep winning."

Salah, the Premier League's top scorer for the past two seasons, took his tally to nine goals in the competition so far this term.
