Liverpool 3 v 0 Brentford Salah Reaches 200 Goals in English Football

Mohamed Salah reached 200 total goals in Eng­lish foot­ball with a dou­ble for Liv­er­pool in their 3–0 vic­to­ry over Brentford. 

The Egypt­ian put the Reds in con­trol at Anfield, match­ing them on points with league lead­ers Man­ches­ter City. Salah has 198 for Liv­er­pool and two for for­mer club Chelsea, becom­ing one of the most pro­lif­ic scor­ers in the his­to­ry of Eng­lish football.

In addi­tion, Salah con­tin­ued his incred­i­ble record at Anfield, scor­ing in 14 of his last 15 home league match­es. He has now matched Thier­ry Hen­ry and Alan Shear­er with goals or assists in 15 straight Pre­mier League games at home. With 14 so far this sea­son, Salah has the most com­bined goals and assists in the Eng­lish foot­ball top-flight.

He opened the scor­ing in the 39th minute, cool­ly fin­ish­ing from the edge of the box. Salah’s sec­ond came just after half­time, tap­ping in a low cross at the far post. Dio­go Jota added Liv­er­pool’s third to wrap up three points.

Salah pre­vi­ous­ly spent one sea­son at Roma after scor­ing twice in 19 games for Chelsea ear­li­er in his career. But he has become a lethal scor­er in Eng­land since join­ing Liv­er­pool in 2017, net­ting over 30 goals in three sep­a­rate campaigns.
