Mo Salah equalled a Thierry Henry record in Liverpool’s win over LASK

Liverpool star Mohamed Salah, on Thursday, secured for himself a noteworthy piece of European football history.

For those who may have missed it, Salah, and Liverpool, were back in action a short time ago.

Amid a fine stretch of domestic form, the Reds turned their attentions towards matters on the continent, in a Europa League group stage opening day meeting with LASK.

And, when all was said and done, as expected, Jurgen Klopp’s troops marched their way to a three-point haul.

After falling behind early on, 2nd-half goals by way of Darwin Nunez, Luis Diaz, and the aforementioned Salah proved enough to guide Liverpool to the right side of a 3-1 result.

And, as alluded to above, in the process of netting his latest goal, Liverpool’s star attacker etched his name ever further into the history books.

A trademark piece of solo dribbling and cute finish, Salah’s strike on Thursday marked his 42nd in major European competition for Liverpool.

As per statisticians Opta, this represents ‘the joint-most of any player for an English club’, alongside Arsenal legend Thierry Henry:
