Mohamed Salah continued his excellent scoring record against Man United with a brace which saw him overtake Robbie Fowler as the club’s highest Premier League scorer.

The Egyptian took his league tally to 129 and manager Jurgen Klopp described the achievement as “really special” following the 7-0 thrashing.

In tribute of his latest milestone, Liverpool commemorated the occasion by presenting Salah with a shirt with ‘129’ on the back.

It comes just days after the forward joined Ian Rush as the only other player to score 20 goals in six consecutive seasons.

You always know it’s a special goal when he whips his top off!


All the post-United joy you could desire!
