Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah says scoring goals is always on his mind
Salah breaks drought and brings up “special” milestone in Liverpool’s 3-1 win at Southampton.
Salah became the fastest player in Liverpool’s history to hit 50 league goals following his sensational solo effort in Friday evening’s 3-1 win at Southampton.
The Egyptian’s crucial 80th-minute strike at the end of a blistering run from inside his own half brought up his half-century in 69 matches, three fewer than Fernando Torres, and helped move his team back to the top of the Premier League table.
He had previously not found the net since February 9, his longest barren run since signing from Roma for £34m in 2017.
“I think as a striker you need to score. Always, I’m thinking to score,” Salah told Sky Sports.
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp said: “It was never in doubt that he was a great player in my side.
“Super goal from Mo, super run. Fantastic finish. It was goal number 50 for Liverpool, an incredible number.
“He’s pretty consistent, very consistent. Physical things are always there, but how he stays always calm… it’s a nice moment. A first goal after a while.”
