Salah Strikes Late To Give Liverpool Victory At Palace

Mohamed Salah scored a late winner as Liverpool came from behind to beat Crystal Palace

Goals from forwards Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah helped the Merseyside club come back from a goal down to seal a 2-1 victory over Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park on Saturday in manager Juergen Klopp's 100th league game in the English top-flight.

Klopp quickly replaced the Senegalese and Liverpool took advantage when despite having one of the quieter games of an incredible debut season at the club, Salah proved the match victor.

Still, with Guardiola's men all-but-confirmed as champions - they can clinch the title next weekend by beating Manchester United - Klopp is well aware of the scale of the task facing his team.

"It is not good, he is really down in the dressing room", Klopp said.

"He's a proper striker".

Klopp pinpointed the penalty Salah scored for Egypt against Congo in October, which booked his country's place at the World Cup, as a key moment for the forward, encouraging him to kick on to the next level in his performances.

His Liverpool team-mates have also been thriving, with the Reds now third in the Premier League.


And it doesn't end there.

Mohamed Salah ultimately, and predictably, provided the victor and one of his best goals of the season, showing composure and class to finish in tight space following Andrew Robertson's cut-back. Also he could set a record for scoring goals in most number of matches in a 38-game season.

The record for a 38-game season is nearly certainly going to fall - Cristiano Ronaldo, Luis Suarez, and Alan Shearer all managed 31, and it's hard to imagine Salah not scoring three more. Both had achieved the feat in a 40 game-season.

When it comes to goals, Salah still has some way to go to reach Messi's level of goalscoring achievements, with the Argentine having netted more than 40 La Liga goals in a season on three occasions, and a mammoth 73 in all competitions in 2001/12.

"I'm not going to sit here saying the only reason we came away with another defeat is because the referee didn't send one of their players off", said Hodgson.

"But the assistant has fed him the information and between the, m I think they are quite right to give a yellow card".

'But if they can get another one or two in I think they can challenge next summer'.
