The Egyptian King, Mohamed Salah, Secures Record-breaking 107 Left-footed Goals in Premier League with Brace Against Leeds United in 6-1 Victory.
On Monday night, Mohamed Salah surpassed Robbie Fowler’s Premier League record for the most goals scored with the left foot.
Having scored his 106th left-footed goal in the Premier League, Mohamed Salah surpassed former Liverpool striker Fowler’s record.
Mohamed Salah and Diogo Jota both scored twice as Liverpool returned to winning ways in the Premier League with a 6-1 hammering of Leeds United on Monday.
After a five-game winless streak, Jurgen Klopp’s side secured their first victory in any competition since their March 5th victory over Manchester United, defeating their relegation-threatened hosts.
Liverpool quickly took control in the first half with goals from Cody Gakpo and Salah, although Luis Sinisterra managed to pull one back for Elland Road just two minutes into the second half.
However, any hopes of a dramatic turnaround were dashed as Jota scored two goals, sandwiching Salah’s second, to secure the three points that brought the Reds within six points of Europa League qualification. Darwin Nunez later came off the bench to complete the scoring.
Leeds missed a glorious chance to take the lead against the run of play when Rodrigo headed straight at Alisson from Harrison’s free-kick in the seventh minute. However, Liverpool soon went ahead when Alexander-Arnold dispossessed Firpo, played a one-two with Salah, and set up Gakpo for a simple finish in the 35th minute.
Just four minutes later, Salah scored a spectacular goal past Meslier with a powerful shot following Jota’s delicate pass. However, Konate’s mistake allowed Sinisterra to chip Alisson and reduce the deficit.
Liverpool regained control when Jones found Jota to curl past Meslier, and Brenden Aaronson struck the post with a long-range attempt. Salah scored his second goal of the game after Gakpo passed the ball to him for a cool finish into the bottom-left corner.
Jota added to Liverpool’s tally by finding the same corner from Henderson’s pass, and Nunez completed the rout by scoring past Meslier after Alexander-Arnold’s dinked ball.
