Mohamed Salah Creates Liverpool history by Scoring In Ninth Straight Match



20211020 053821 1

Mohamed Salah became the first player in Liverpool history to score in nine successive matches with his early strike in Tuesday’s Champions League clash with Atletico Madrid.

The Egyptian forward steered in a left-footed drive from just outside the box that was originally credited as a James Milner goal due to the shot taking a deflection on its way through.

However, the goal was later given to Salah and with that, the 29-year-old broke another record as he extended his extraordinary scoring streak.

Salah’s run began with a penalty to help the Reds to a 1-1 draw with Chelsea on August 28 and he followed that up with goals against Leeds United, Milan, Crystal Palace, Brentford, Porto (two), Manchester City, and Watford.

That remarkable solo goal against Watford on Saturday made Salah the fourth Liverpool player to net in eight consecutive matches alongside Sam Raybould (1902-03), John Aldridge (1987-88), and Daniel Sturridge (2013-14).

He moved fully first in that list with his goal at Wanda Metropolitano, with that strike also meaning he has scored in each of his last six away games for Liverpool in the Champions League.

Only Sergio Aguero has scored in more consecutive away matches in the tournament for an English club, the current Barcelona striker finding the net seven games on the road for Citizens between 2017 and 2019.
