Mohamed Salah Claims Liverpool's All-Time Premiership Scoring Record

In a dominant 7-0 victory over bitter rivals Manchester United, Mohamed Salah cemented his place in Liverpool's history books as the club's all-time top scorer in the Premiership. The 30-year-old Egyptian forward scored twice in the match, bringing his total number of goals for the Anfield side to 129, surpassing the legendary Robbie Fowler's previous record of 128.

A Historic Milestone for Salah

Salah's impressive performance against Manchester United not only broke the club's scoring record but also provided a much-needed boost for Liverpool, who have struggled in the league this season.

Despite his current form not quite reaching the heights of previous years, Salah demonstrated his class in this crucial fixture, scoring two goals and helping his teammates secure a victory that could turn their season around.

After scoring his second goal and breaking the record, Salah took off his shirt in a moment of pure elation, showing the world just how much this achievement meant to him. "It's very special," Salah said. "This record has been on my mind since I came here.

To beat it today against Man Utd with that result is unbelievable."

A Memorable Win for Liverpool

In reflecting on the game, Salah emphasized the importance of staying humble and not becoming overconfident, despite the magnitude of the win.

"It was special to win the game like that," Salah said. "At the same time though, I don't want to go into the next game overconfident. We just need to stay humble and just play and try and win games."

Since joining Liverpool from Roma in 2017, Salah has made a massive impact on the club's attack, scoring 32 goals in his first season in the Premiership and consistently reaching the 20-goal mark in each of the following seasons.

This season, he has 11 league goals, and with yesterday's victory, Liverpool have returned to the fight for a place in next season's Champions League. Coach Jurgen Klopp stated that this victory serves as a warning to Liverpool's rivals, showing that they should not be written off just yet.

With Salah at the forefront, Liverpool will look to continue their winning ways and make a push for the top of the league.
