The Liverpool number 23 was in fine form on his first start for Liverpool during their 3-0 victory against Southampton on Saturday.
Shaqiri started in a central attacking midfield role behind Liverpool's front three and duly impressed, linking up with some incisive and quick plays.
It didn't take long for Shaqiri to make his mark in a Reds shirt, creating Liverpool's opener which deflected off Wesley Hoedt and hitting the bar from 35 yards out for Salah to capitalise and tap in from close-range.
The 26-year-old looked dynamic throughout the first-half, running into space and creating chances for his teammates. Indeed, he was unlucky not to get off the mark with a goal of his own.
With the game effectively over, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp withdrew the Swiss international at half-time following a promising display.
Liverpool supporters will be already looking forward to seeing him against Chelsea in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday, with Klopp confirming his half-time change was for tactical reasons rather down to fitness.
Here's what Liverpool supporters made of Shaqiri's debut start...
Shaqiri is brilliant. Absolutely brilliant.

Thing with Shaqiri is, he is a very hit and miss type of player a la Luis Garcia. But when he's good; he's fucking boss. Been very impressive so far, especially that free kick. 🚀
Xherdan Shaqiri is a fucking pocket sized dynamite. Incredible first half performance from the diminutive Swiss international, really thrived in that free role. pic.twitter.com/n7mUOvhRhu
Shaqiri is having a great first half debut. Was involved in the the first and third goal. £13M? Lol
Shaqiri is so intelligent in finding space. Him Mane and Firmino behind Salah is a motive
Don't expect to see Fekir anytime soon, Shaqiri is the man for the job.
Shaqiri is brilliant what a performance
