Mohamed Salah scored two goals and Vinaldom completed the hat-trick in Liverpool’s 3-1 victory over West Ham in the 21st round matches of the English Premier League, days after the victory over Tottenham by the same score.
“I don’t want to say that we are back because I think you have to show that in every match again,” Vinaldum told his club’s website.
“We just have to continue playing the way we scored Salah’s second goal, and we try to do that in every match,” he added.
“Every game is difficult, but when there is an opportunity to create an opportunity like this, we must do it,” the Dutch international added.
Salah scored his second goal in the match after a perfect counter-attack after a corner kick for West Ham.
“I think that in addition to the fine goals, we played good football. In some moments we were enjoying the match a lot, even though we made some mistakes. But I think the match was a good game.”
On how different chasing the lead than leading the schedule is, he explained, “I don’t think we should think about that, lead or chase.”
“We just have to look at it game by game, and give everything game by game, and then we’ll see where we will be at the end of the season. I think this is the thing that should be focused on now,” he said.
Salah raised his score of goals this season to 21 goals, 15 in the league as goals for the competition, 3 in the England Cup and 3 in the Champions League.
