Mohamed Salah reached a milestone of 200 goals in English football, contributing significantly to Liverpool’s 3-0 victory over Brentford. This win places Liverpool on par with Manchester City and Arsenal at the summit of the Premier League. Salah’s first-half goal marked his 15th consecutive Premier League appearance at Anfield, where he either scored or assisted, matching the record streaks of Alan Shearer and Thierry Henry.
In the second half, Salah secured his 200th goal with a header, courtesy of Kostas Tsimikas’ precise ball control. Diogo Jota sealed the victory with a powerful strike from the edge of the box. Liverpool showcased authority, bouncing back from recent frustrating results against Luton and Toulouse. This victory marked their sixth consecutive home win in the Premier League, leveraging the Anfield factor to compete with top rivals and fuel hopes of another title pursuit.
Despite Brentford’s efforts and a halted winning streak, Liverpool displayed an improved performance, with Alisson making crucial saves, including a one-on-one against Bryan Mbeumo. Brentford, currently ninth, will face Chelsea after the international break, while Liverpool’s next challenge is against Manchester City on Saturday, November 25. Brentford will host Arsenal in their upcoming fixture on the same day at 5.30pm.
