Mohamed Salah continued his remarkable Anfield scoring record with two goals in Liverpool’s 3-0 victory over Brentford to bring up his 200th in English football.
Only Manchester City’s Erling Haaland has scored more in the Premier League this season than the Egypt international, who took his tally to 10 by scoring for the sixth successive home game to write another entry in the club’s history books.
Salah now has 200 goals in English football. His opener in the first half came from a Darwin Nunez pass, keeping up the Uruguayan’s very intriguing habit. The 24-year-old has managed seven Premier League assists for the Reds but, incredibly, they have all been for Salah. Salah’s strike itself saw history made.
By tucking the ball home he became the first player to score in each of Liverpool’s first six home league games of a season. When he added the second with a header in the second half more milestones were reached. Salah has now been directly involved in 119 goals in 117 appearances for Liverpool at Anfield in the Premier League (87 goals, 32 assists). Not impressed?
How about the fact it was his 200th goal in English football – and that’s despite his tough start when he was at Chelsea. Only the Egyptian, Arsenal legend Thierry Henry, and Alan Shearer have made a goal contribution in 15 consecutive Premier League home games.
