Mohamed Salah continues to make waves. The Egyptian international scored Liverpool’s first two goals last weekend against Brentford (3-0). With this brace, he etches (yet another) name in Premier League history.
Mohamed Salah has left his mark on the history of Liverpool and the Premier League. The Egyptian striker played a key role in the Reds’ 3-0 victory over Brentford on Sunday November 12, scoring twice.
As is so often the case, when Jürgen Kloop’s team are in trouble, Salah emerges from nowhere to get them back on track and he did it again against the Bees. With two goals disallowed for offside, Liverpool turned to their strong man. The Pharaoh struck first in the 39th minute and then after the hour mark (62). A brace that delighted the German coach.
“Mohamed Salah is an exceptional player. He played a great game today (Sunday editor’s note). Against Brentford, he kept the ball for us a lot of the time and we were able to build from there, which was super important and then he scored two goals. We had so many good moments in the first half where we scored, but there were offsides and things like that. There’s no doubt that when the ball is in that area, he’s the one who ends up scoring. So he’s a very special player,” the former Borussia Dortmund coach told a press conference.
Only three players have scored or assisted in 15 consecutive Premier League home games:
◎ 18 – Alan Shearer
◎ 17 – Thierry Henry
◉ 15 – Mohamed Salah
◎ 15 – Alan Shearer

A double for the record books
With these two goals, Mohamed Salah has etched his name even further into the history of Liverpool and the English Championship. The Egyptian winger not only scored his 200th goal in England’s top flight, but also remains on a 15-game scoring streak at Anfield. Salah is the 3rd player to achieve such feats in the Premier League. He comes just behind Alan Shearer (18) and Thierry Henry (17). Two legends of English soccer.
With 10 league goals and 4 assists to his name, the Reds’ star man has been involved in 14 of his team’s goals. This makes him the 2nd player involved in more league goals this season. Just behind Erling Haaland, who also scored a brace against Chelsea (4-4). All of which goes to show the great form of the Egyptian, who is currently delighting Liverpool fans. The Reds are in 2nd place on 27 points, one point behind leaders Manchester City on 28.
Voted Premier League Player of the Month for October, Mohamed Salah is well on his way to another historic season. With a team that has been strengthened over the summer, the Egyptian striker has the potential to make even more of an impact on the club’s history.
