Salah has become Liverpool’s all-time Premier League top scorer after scoring twice against Manchester United on Sunday.
M Salah has also become Liverpool’s all-time top scorer versus Manchester United in the Premier League. “I can’t lie, it’s pretty amazing,” he told Sky Sports when questioned about the previous record.
“This record was on my head since I got here, I suppose after my first year I was always pursuing that record, so to break it today, against United, with that outcome, was incredible. Now I’m heading home to celebrate with my family, drink some camomile tea, and sleep!”
The Reds demolished their opponents at Anfield, putting them firmly in contention for a top-four finish. Cody Gakpo and Darwin Nunez both scored scores to put Jurgen Klopp’s side in charge, and Salah’s double was the icing on the cake.
The Egyptian’s first goal was spectacular. Salah pivoted and hammered home a first-time strike off the underside of the crossbar after a stray ball fell to him. It was a powerful strike that summed up a fantastic day for Liverpool and reinforced his legacy on Merseyside.
Salah scored Liverpool’s 10th Premier League goal against Manchester United just before the final whistle.
Mohamed Salah is the new all time new scorer of Liverpool’s Premier League
The Egyptian player now has 130 Premier League goals for Liverpool, earning him the club’s greatest scorer. He has more goals (128) than Robbie Fowler (128), Steven Gerrard (120), Michael Owen (118), and Sadio Mane (118). (90).
Liverpool’s triumph on Sunday was significant for a number of reasons. For starters, it drops Klopp’s team to fifth in the Premier League rankings, only three points behind fourth-placed Tottenham with a game in hand. They also have a higher goal differential than Antonio Conte’s team.
Liverpool’s victory will obviously mean a lot to their fans. United is one of their main competitors, if not the biggest, and humiliating them in this fashion is surely welcomed. That is Liverpool’s biggest victory over United in any tournament.
Mohamed Salah was questioned about breaking the two marks ahead of Sunday’s game. “I’m aware of the records, especially this one,” he stated, according to the Liverpool ECHO. It’s really precious to me. When I came, after my first season I had like 31 goals and I was like, ‘I want to be the top scorer for Liverpool in the Premier League’. It’s something I’m particularly interested in.
