Liverpool needed a big win against Red Star Belgrade on Wednesday, and that’s exactly what they got. There have been signs that the Reds’ form had been reducing over the last month or so, but they put all of those concerns to bed at Anfield.
They dominated their opponents and earned a 4-0 win, with everyone in Jurgen Klopp’s team impressing. The star of the show on the night, though, was Egyptian ace Mo Salah.
Salah has had a decent season, all told, but he’s fallen well short of the lofty expectations that he set for himself after a stunning first season in England.
However, his goals on Wednesday proved that he’s still the same deadly player that made him so highly regarded last season – and he’s still feeling the effects of that season, too.
The goals that Salah scored on Wednesday allowed the Egyptian to reach his 50th goal for Liverpool – a remarkable achievement to earn after less than 18 months at Anfield.
“I’m happy to score 50 goals for Liverpool. I’m very proud about that and I hope to keep scoring to help the team win games,”
…it took just 65 games! https://t.co/NNe8cP0T74

Unsurprisingly, this is a stat that has delighted Liverpool fans, and it’s fair to say that they are in awe of the man that they’ve touted as the ‘King of Anfield’
