Salah has become only the second player in Premier League history to score 100+ left-footed goals, after Robbie Fowler (105). Wand.
Jurgen Klopp praised Liverpool for producing a ‘top performance’ to beat Manchester City.
After the match Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp said,”Salah played an exceptional game. Absolutely outstanding. he was one of two strikers in the centre together with Bobby. Great, an absolutely top performance. The goal was world-class. Again, a colleague of yours asked me if I think we were a bit lucky in that moment because [Joao] Cancelo missed the ball. I didn’t see a player missing the ball, I saw a player using his body extremely well and being there in the one-on-one situation with the goalie. So, a top-class goal. The situation immediately before was really unlucky that he didn’t score there already. Apart from that, good on the ball, a constant threat in behind, working extremely hard, an outstanding performance, honestly. It was really good.
I think on a normal day you should not even try against City, play your normal against them and hope that you get something from it [is not enough]. You have to play to your limits and further, that’s what we did. We defended in an extremely well organised but very passionate way, closed the right gaps, challenged in the right areas and – because this still happens, and that’s the biggest challenge against City – they still get through. They still get to the touchline, they still have an incredible amount of players in the box and how we defended the box, and especially the six-yard box, was absolutely exceptional because I think we all know, in these games you all know the City goals when they arrive there and they have the square pass and one is waiting free in front of the goal. We did it really well. So it was a top performance from all the boys and that’s why we could win it.”
