Liverpool’s winning streak continues thanks to another spectacular performance by the Reds’ frontman Mohammad Salah. The Egyptian football star has gone on to smash yet another club record, this time in the UEFA Champions League (UCL).
Tuesday night’s 3-2 victory against Atlético Madrid away from home sees the Reds advance in the Round of 16.
On Saturday, Liverpool (LFC) maintained their clean sheet with a 5-0 defeat of Watford at Vicarage Road Stadium.
Mohammad Salah has had a fantastic start to the season and has already broken a few records.
Since signing for Liverpool in 2017, Mo Salah has reached the record of 100 Premier League goals. He has also scored in 9 consecutive games for the 2019/20 Premier League champions, assisting the English Football Club to maintain their unbeaten run.
Scoring 2 of the crucial goals in the square-off between Atlético Madrid meant Mo Salah has broken the club’s previous record held by Steven Gerard.
His tally of 31 goals in just 48 UCL games dethroned former LFC captain Steven Gerard’s 30.
Gerard reached 30 goals in 87 appearances in the UCL, making Salah’s feat that much more impressive. Liverpool Manager Jürgen Klopp said the club’s top-scorer is the best player in the world right now.
Speaking to press after the Watford victory he said “He is, for sure, one of the best in the world now. It’s obviously not for me or whatever to say who is the best. For me, he’s the best.”
