At the start of the second half of Liverpool‘s Premier League match against Norwich, Milot Rashica handed the Canaries a surprising 48th-minute lead, putting Jürgen Klopp’s team in a difficult situation.
However, Sadio Mané equalized with an overhead kick in the 64th minute, and Salah scored three minutes later to complete the comeback. As a result, the Egyptian striker has now hit a significant goal-scoring milestone for Liverpool. For the Reds, his 150th game could be significant.
Salah reaches milestone
Liverpool appears to be title contenders once more after their 3-1 win over Norwich City, which was followed by Tottenham’s stunning 3-2 triumph away at Manchester City. Sadio Mane’s spectacular overhead kick was quickly followed by Salah’s record goal, his 150th for Liverpool in only his 233rd game.
Liverpool’s fifth consecutive league win and eighth overall puts them on 57 points from 25 games, while City is on 63 points after hosting Tottenham Hotspur later. Despite their efforts, Norwich was relegated to the bottom of the table after Burnley and Watford both won.
After the Goalscoring Milestone
Mohamed Salah expressed his delight at scoring his 150th goal for Liverpool during the Reds’ 3-1 win over Norwich City at Anfield.
“IT feels great,” the 29-year-old told Premier League Productions. “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. But we managed to come back and it’s a great result. “
“Of course, I’m happy to score 150. I’m always proud to score for this club, and the most important thing is to win games, which is what we did today.”
After Milot Rashica’s deflected strike, Liverpool trailed the relegation-threatened Canaries, but goals from Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah, and Luis Diaz brought the Reds to within six points of the Premier League summit.
Salah’s momentous goal helped to strengthen the Reds’ title prospects after leaders Manchester City were defeated 3-2 by Tottenham in a thrilling game at the Etihad Stadium, and Egypt forward was overjoyed with his achievement.
