With his two wonderful goals against West Ham, the Egyptian star Mohamed Salah became the first player
to score 20 goals or more in various competitions, in 4 successive seasons for Liverpool 34 years ago, according
to what the Spanish newspaper “AS” reported, citing the “Opta” website, which specializes in statistics.
The famous Welsh attacker, Ian Rush, was the last to achieve that feat, but in 6 consecutive seasons from
1981-1982 to 1986-1987.
Salah commented after the match, saying: “Frankly, I did not think about the subject, but I am happy that
it has achieved (the achievement), according to what was reported by” ASS “.
He continued, “We needed to win because we did not win in previous matches, and the performance was also
good and we scored goals, adding: We went through a difficult period recently and this suffering is necessary
for us to go through and fail to score and all teams did not score either.”
He continued, “I hope that the victory over Tottenham (in the previous round) will be a turning point for us,
but we want to focus on the upcoming matches.”
“ASS” continued to convey the comments of the Egyptian Pharaoh, who considered that his responsibility
was great during the West Ham match in the absence of his teammates, Firmino and Mane.
The Egyptian star had put an end to his scoring fast in the Premier League in a wonderful way, scoring two goals
as defending champions Liverpool won 3-1 at West Ham United on Sunday.
And life in Liverpool came to life after a first-half devoid of any events in front of the goal at London Stadium,
and Salah scored two goals in a wonderful way to give the three points to his team.
The Egyptian striker took to the center of the field to shoot his left foot into the goal after 57 minutes – his first
goal in the league since December 19 – and doubled the score with a superb finish to a counterattack in
the 68th minute.
Liverpool is third after 21 rounds, 4 points behind leaders Manchester City, who played a lesser game.
