Liverpool’s win over Norwich was quite a memorable one for the fans as not only did new signing, Luis Diaz, bag his first Premier League but also Mo Salah reached yet another football milestone as he became only the 10th player in the club’s history to score 150 goals across all competitions.

Salah scored the second goal in Liverpool’s 3-1 win over bottom half Norwich City to achieve this and he did so in style. He did this feat in 233 games and is only behind Roger Hunt who achieved it in 226 games.

Out of these 150 goals, 33 came from the UEFA Champions League while the rest came from English competitions.

“It feels great,” Salah told Premier League Productions after the game. “We were struggling in the beginning when we conceded the goal but I think we played good football [in the] first half. In the second half, we conceded the goal, so the game became tougher.

He also admitted that he felt very proud and happy to score 150 goals and that he is always proud to score for Liverpool.

Expectedly, Liverpool’s manager, Jurgen Klopp, was also full of praise for his Egyptian forward. Not only did he praise him, but he also remembered some of Salah’s wonder goals during the post-match interview.

“Ah, today was a really cheeky one, to be honest,” Klopp said in the post-match interview as PTI reports.

As Klopp rightly said, nobody could have expected what he has achieved and he is nowhere near his end as the Egyptian king has a lot left to offer.
