Mo Salah opens up about ‘special’ Liverpool FC milestone

Mo Salah opens up about ‘special’ Liverpool FC milestone

Forward Salah became the fastest player in the Merseyside club's history to hit 50 league goals following his sensational solo effort in Friday evening's 3-1 success at Southampton.

"I think as a striker you need to score".

City's next Premier League fixture is against Crystal Palace on April 15 [NZ time], where they will have a chance to put the pressure back on Liverpool, who host Chelsea later that day, the most challenging of their final five matches. "A first goal after a while". Luckily Liverpool have strength in depth and two second half substitutions were enough to stretch Southampton to their limits.

Mohamed Salah admits scoring goals is constantly on his mind after he spectacularly ended an eight-game drought to write his name in Liverpool's record books.

Mo Salah is on his longest run without a goal for Liverpool but former Reds defender Stephen Warnock has backed him to come good and highlighted his contribution to the side as a whole.

They finished 19 points clear of second-placed Manchester United, so even if Liverpool lost the rest of their games this season and City win all of theirs, we will see a closer finish than last season.

The Reds fought from behind to win 3-1 at St Mary's, meaning they have leapfrogged title rivals Manchester City back into top spot. Liverpool had far more control of the game after the break, but had to wait until 10 minutes from time for the crucial goal and it came on the counter-attack from a Southampton corner.

"We have 82 points now, that is massive in this insane league and everyone is waiting for us".

Klopp's men are getting the job done, just about, but the fact that Salah is back delivering sensational goals and standing tall when they needed him most will be a huge bonus heading into the final five games of the season. I am really proud.

Jurgen Klopp chose to sit James Milner and Jordan Henderson and start a midfield three of Naby Keita, Fabinho, and Georginio Wijnaldum.

"It is a hard year for everybody, you need to have 70-75 points for the Champions League and 90-something for the title".

"It was brilliant, I told the boys we have a good mentality among us", said Klopp.

A succession of crosses went all the way through to the opposite flank before Trent Alexander-Arnold provided the telling moment of quality with a whipped delivery which Keita met and squeezed over the line via a slight deflection off Jan Bednarek.

It is imperative for the English game that we have a title race.
