African footballer of the year for 2017 Mohammed Salah made an impressive impact in Liverpool’s 5-0 demolish of Porto, becoming the first Liverpool player to score 30 goals in all competitions since Luis Suarez 31 goals in 2013/2014.
Salah scored a “Messi-like” goal in the 18-yard-box dribblingand putting the ball beyond the reach of the goalkeeper on to his left foot with a gentle but determined header before slotting the ball home between a defender and the keeper.
This feat opens the door for creating a new record for the Egyptian forward with Liverpool having at least ten more matches to play in all competitions, it means means Salah’s hope of beating the Uruguayans’ record has high prospect as he could score as much as 40 goals if he keeps a high performance.
Salah who has now scored in five consecutive matches in all competitions becomes the first Reds player to achieve that feat since Divock Origi in December 2016.
In fact, Liverpool games without Salah on the score sheet this season have been rare. The former Chelsea forward’s longest ‘drought’ was a run of three without scoring towards the end of last year.
If there are two key players whom Chelsea would ever regret selling in their lives, then Salah is arguably one of such players.
