They may have been made to wait for it, but Liverpool fans finally got to see history being made last night. Mo Salah, who has been on the longest goal drought of his Liverpool career so far, finally broke his duck to score his 50th for the club in the top flight, putting the Reds in front and making him the fasted LFC player to score 50 PL goals.

In previous weeks we’ve all seen the Liverpool forward-looking visibly agitated as he spurned chance after chance, and last night you could see the weight lift from off of the Egyptian’s shoulders when he bagged that crucial goal. At the time, plenty of Kopites would have been screaming at their hitman to lay the ball for Roberto Firmino, but Salah proved them all wrong and stuck the ball in the bottom corner.
It was a finish from a player who looks like he’s been on a hot streak, but instead, it was the opposite. Salah had gone six Premier League games, and eight games in all competitions, since his last goal before yesterday evening and now that he’s got that crucial goal he’ll be ready to go back to banging them in again. The pressure from the fans and the media or the fans will surely quiet down now and he could even win the golden boot again now as he brought up 18 for the season.

The Reds couldn’t get enough of Salah’s massive goal yesterday as it fired them to three points and saw the Egyptian write his name in Anfield history.
