Liverpool supporters were worried about Mohamed Salah's form after Jurgen Klopp decided to sideline his star player for the Champions League match against Rangers after a lackluster showing against Arsenal.
After seeing his attacking teammates Darwin Nunez and Roberto Firmino score and Diogo Jota and Luis Diaz provide assists, Jurgen Klopp replaced the Egyptian in the 68th minute.
However, when it was his chance to play in the 68th minute, everything changed right away.
He joined the club and scored a hat trick in under five minutes, making it one of the most amazing substitutions in Champions League history.
He only needed eight minutes to score his first goal, which came at the 76th minute and was assisted by Diogo Jota, who was also making a substitution.
At the 80-minute mark, Salah scores the subsequent goal. When Mohammed Salah scored his third goal, giving him a hat trick, in the 81st minute, he silenced his detractors.
The 30-year-old has five goals and four assists in 12 appearances this season, but his performances have fallen short of the standards he set for Liverpool last season. Some football fans contend that Mane's performance last season was what caused Salah to have a better season than he did this one.
