European nights are back at Anfield, and Mohamed Salah made it one to remember as Liverpool hosted AC Milan in the UEFA Champions League.
The Egyptian scored a decisive goal in what was to be a frantic game on Merseyside. The Reds went 1-0 up before falling 2-1 heading into the break. Salah then levelled things up as Jordan Henderson’s screamer saw Liverpool secure the three points in their Champions League opener.
The second Liverpool goal on the night was tight, with Salah himself even thinking that he was offside. But the strike stood, and in doing so, the attacker levelled a Champions League record.
As per OptaJoe, Salah is now level with Steven Gerrard with the most goals scored in the Champions League at Anfield with 14 from a Liverpool player. The stat is even more incredible when you realise the attacker only arrived on Merseyside in 2017.
Indeed, Salah’s goal scoring exploits for Liverpool have been nothing short of incredible. The attacker hit his 100th Premier League goal for the club last weekend against Leeds United.
This latest goal for the attacker now puts Salah just one strike away from Champions League and Liverpool history.
And on social media, Liverpool fans are speechless that Salah had equalled Gerrard’s record in as little as four years since joining the Anfield side.
