Goal by goal, landmark after landmark, Mohamed Salah is securing his place in Anfield history. Four years, six months and seven days after his debut, he brought up 150 goals for Liverpool with a strike that combined pace, audacity and importance.
“No one could imagine when he scored the first that he could score 149 [more] in such a short period of time,” said a beaming Jürgen Klopp and as Salah became Liverpool’s second quickest player to 150 – faster than Robbie Fowler, speedier than Ian Rush, sooner than Michael Owen, Kenny Dalglish, Steven Gerrard or Billy Liddell – he left a host of greats trailing in his wake and helped transform an awkward afternoon into an enjoyable one.
