Mo Salah surpasses Robbie Fowler to move into 2nd in Liverpool history books

Mo Salah surpasses Robbie Fowler to move into 2nd in Liverpool history books

 

The latest telling contribution conjured up by Mohamed Salah during Liverpool’s meeting with Manchester City this evening saw the Egyptian etch his name ever further into the club’s fabled history books.

What most would no doubt argue marked the most important fixture of the Premier League campaign to date played out at the Etihad a short time ago.

The clash in question saw champions City play host to Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool, trailing the Sky Blues by just a solitary point at the summit of the English top-flight, in a potential title decider.

A pulsating 90 minutes, in turn, went on to play out between the two sides, ultimately culminating in both being forced to settle for a share of the spoils.

This came after Kevin De Bruyne’s early opener was swiftly cancelled out by Diogo Jota, before hosts City retook the lead courtesy of Gabriel Jesus.

Less than 60 seconds into the 2nd-half, though, Liverpool battled their way back once more, as Sadio Mane bagged what proved to be a decisive equaliser:

Only Gerrard to beat

As showcased in the footage above, Mane’s crucial leveller was laid on by attacking partner in crime Mohamed Salah, whose inch-perfect pass left the former Southampton man with only Ederson to beat.

And, as alluded to above, in the process of bagging his latest assist, Salah too managed to write his name yet further into the storied history books on the red half of Merseyside.

This comes with the Egyptian having now directly contributed to a whopping 159 Premier League goals in Liverpool’s colours.

This marks one more than club legend Robbie Fowler managed across his own Reds stint, leaving Salah trailing only Steven Gerrard on the all-time list at Anfield:
