Liverpool and Egypt superstar Mohamed Salah set a new club record as his side edged Atletico Madrid 3-2 in the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday.
Salah netted twice in the five-goal thriller to become the first Liverpool player to find the back of the net in NINE consecutive games.
The left-footer first scored against Chelsea and Leeds United in the Premier League before netting against AC Milan in the Champions League.
Salah’s fourth game in a row was against Crystal Palace and this was followed by a strike against Brentford in the league.
He then scored a brace against FC Porto before making it seven games in a row against Manchester City in that thrilling 2-2 league draw over two weeks ago.
Salah would score for the eighth game in a row against Watford before setting the new club with a brace against Atletico Madrid away from home.
There were doubts on whether or not Salah’s first goal was awarded to him as the ball took a deflection but he was eventually credited with the goal after review.
Nonetheless, Salah put those doubts to rest as he converted a late penalty for Liverpool against Atleti to end possible controversy around his new club record.
Overall, Salah has netted 12 goals for Liverpool since the start of the current season in August 2021.
