Watch: Mohamed Salah Against City

Liverpool became the first team to beat a Pep Guardiola side three times in one season, and Salah was a major part of that equation.

Last night, Mohamed Salah bagged his 39th—and up until now, most important—goal of the season. The Egyptian has now more than doubled his previous best goal-scoring campaign, and has an outside shout at making a run at Ian Rush’s previously untouchable 47-goal single season record for the club.

His expertly chipped finish over Nicolás Otamendi cancelled out Manchester City’s early strike, and effectively ended the two-legged tie, seeing Liverpool qualify for the Champions League semifinals for the first time in ten years.

Salah’s effort against City is a big reason why Jürgen Klopp’s Reds have managed to claim three victories this season over league champions-elect. In the last three matches against the blue-clad foes, Liverpool’s main man has scored three goals, and added two assists. You can watch all of these goal contributions—2 from the league, and 3 from the Champions League—below.

Long may this scoring form continue. If it does, there’s no limit to how for these Reds can go.
