The Egyptian King Mohamed Salah is continuing his red-hot form in front of the goal for Liverpool, breaking another record. The Liverpool winger became the first player in the club history to score in nine consecutive matches.
Mohamed Salah broke the Liverpool scoring record last night in their Champions League game. His two goals against Atletico Madrid helped Liverpool to beat the Spanish champions 2-3 in the group stage match.
The 29-year-old is having another excellent season with Liverpool and is breaking many records on the way. He already has scored 12 goals from his 11 appearances across all competition. The only match the Egyptian failed to score was against Burnley in the Premier League.
LIVERPOOL RIDING HIGH ON SALAH FORM
Salah set the new record against Atletico Madrid in the 8th minute of the match. Though there was confusion after a deflection, the goal was finally awarded to Salah. Salah scored his second of the night and the winner for Liverpool in the 78th minute bringing more joy to the team.
The 29-year-old has also made new landmarks with Liverpool when he scored 100 goals in Premier League. In that process, he also became the fifth-fastest player to reach this milestone.
Salah has now scored 137 times for Liverpool in all competition after his move from AS Roma in 2017. He was pivotal in winning Liverpool their first-ever Premier League title and their 6th Champions League title.
The winger has upped his game this season and it will be important for Liverpool in their pursuit of titles. Liverpool is currently second in the Premier League table, one point behind leader Chelsea. Liverpool will be banking on Salah as they will travel to Manchester United this weekend in the Premier League clash.
