Salah equals Gerrard’s Liverpool record

Mohammed Salah has equalled a record after scoring for Liverpool on Wednesday evening.

The Egyptian made a bit of history with his second half strike against Serie A side, AC Milan.

Salah equalled Steven Gerrard’s Liverpool record for most Uefa Champions League goals at Anfield Stadium with his strike on Wednesday night.

He netted a 48th minute equaliser after some fine work by Divock Origi who laid an assist for the African star. The goal was Salah’s 14th in the continental competition, which saw him going level with the legendary Gerrard.

Before moving to Liverpool, Salah had scored just three Champions League goals in his career, but he has since become a regular scorer in the competition.

He now has 26 Champions League goals for Liverpool, with more than half of those coming at home.

One of his most memorable tallies came away, he opened the scoring in the 2019 final against Tottenham with a penalty in the second minute of the game.

Things didn’t start well for him on the night as he produced an uncharacteristic miss early in the game.

It was just the second time Salah failed to convert from the spot in 19 Liverpool attempts, and the first time since 2017.

Eventually Jurgen Klopp’s side ran out with a 3-2 win. Fikayo Tomori scored an early own goal before Milan scored twice in two minutes through Ante Rebic and Brahim Diaz, 2-1.

Salah equalised early in the second half before captain fantastic Jordan Henderson netted the winner in the 69th minute to seal all three points for the Reds.
