Egypt forward Mohamed Salah’s double helped Liverpool equal Manchester City’s record of 20 consecutive Premier League wins and move Jurgen Klopp’s side ever closer to the title.
The Egypt forward scored twice in Saturday’s 4-0 win over Southampton at Anfield as the runaway leaders took another step towards winning their first English title since 1990. With Jurgen Klopp’s side leading through goals from Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Jordan Henderson, Salah struck in the 71st minute from Henderson’s pass.
He scored again from close-range in stoppage-time to make it 42 games unbeaten for Liverpool in the league. Liverpool have equalled Manchester City’s record of 20 consecutive Premier League home wins and only Bill Shankly’s Liverpool team in 1972 had a longer winning streak on home soil in English top-flight history.
