Salah has made a major impact since his £36.9 million move from AS Roma in June, providing Jurgen Klopp with the regular goalscoring presence he has often lacked.
With his brace in Sunday’s 2-2 draw with Tottenham at Anfield, the Egyptian brought his tally of league goals to 21 from just 25 appearances.
In doing so he surpassed Fernando Torres and Daniel Sturridge as the quickest player to reach 20 goals in the English top flight, with the centre-forward duo both doing so in 27 games.
And few have been simple tap-ins, either, with the 25-year-old finding the back of the net with a host of fine efforts.
His most recent goal, a sensational solo effort against Spurs, was arguably his best yet, weaving through a series of challenges to fire past Hugo Lloris from a tight angle.
Speaking to FourFourTwo for this month’s issue, Salah said he was simply “happy scoring goals for the club I supported as a kid,” which is hugely encouraging.
Amid speculation of interest from Real Madrid, the hope is he stays and continues scoring for many years to come.
One milestone that is has eluded Salah so far at Liverpool, however, is a hat-trick—and with a trip to Southampton to come on Sunday, this could be the perfect time to do so.
