Salah scores against Brighton as Liverpool seal Champions League spot
With his 32nd goal against Brighton in the Premier League Mohamed Salah became the best goal scorer in the Premier League ever since the rebranding of the competition.
Liverpool started the game fully determined to secure a win, afraid they will stumble and Chelsea would grab win, which could have cost them their Champions League spot for next season.
The first goal came when Dominic Solanke found enough space to pass the ball to Salah, who unleashed a powerful shot down the bottom right corner, a goal that took the Pharaoh’s tally ahead of Luis Suarez, Alan Shearer and Cristiano Ronaldo in the history of the competition.
Sadio Mane gave Salah a great opportunity to double the score yet it was saved by Brighton’s shot stopper and even after the ball rebounded to the Egyptian, his second shot was stopped by Shane Duffy.
The Reds’ second goal came before the end of the first half, as Salah passed the ball to Andrew Robertson who made a pinpoint cross to Dejan Lovern and the Croatian headed the ball home for the second of the day.
In the second half, the Egyptian King made a slaloming run beating everything that moves and made a shrewd pass to Solanke and the 20-year-old bagged his first goal ever for Liverpool.
After Salah left the pitch on the 84th minute, Andrew Robertson also ended the season with his first goal for the Reds ending the game 4-0 for the home team.
By this win Liverpool have booked their place in the Champions League next season, after collecting 75 points standing fourth in the Premier League table.
