Liverpool striker MoD Salah is proud after scoring his 150th goal for the club in a 3-1 comeback victory over Norwich, which has maintained momentum in the title fight.
Lagging behind Miloto Rasica’s rebound at the start of the second half, Liverpool equalized thanks to Sadio Mane’s shot from above before coming out ahead thanks to Salah’s landmark attempt.
The Egyptian striker became only the 10th man to score 150 goals in the club’s history, and the second fastest (232 games) after Roger Hunt (226).
In January, Luis Diaz scored his first goal in his fourth appearance to complete the victory, but it was Salah who was applauded when Liverpool won eight in a row in all competitions to support the warm-up of Premier League leader Manchester City .
“It’s great. I am always proud to score for this club, and most importantly – to win games, which is what we did today, “said Salah, who has scored 25 in 30 games this season, including 17 in 23 Premier League games. league.

“We can focus on every game and that’s the most important thing.
“We know that if you fight City, City win most of the time in games, so all we can do is focus on ourselves and see what happens at the end of the season.”
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp was asked to name his favorite goal Salah, and he scored at least half a dozen.
The German said: “Today, to be honest, it was very cheeky. I remember Chelsea’s goal going inside and hitting the corner, a few dribbles against City and Watford, United’s goal too, Ali’s pass, the Champions League game in City was also special.
“I probably don’t remember all 150, but I remember a lot and there were some really good goals.
“The first was in Watford (in August 2017), probably the easiest. No one could have imagined when he scored first that he could score 149 in such a short period of time. ”
Despite the quality of Liverpool’s three goals, they were all scored in the last 26 minutes, it was not an easy cover for Klopp’s side, and for a while it seemed that their hope of chasing City was about to remain.
“No problem with the challenging, it makes it so special when you win,” the Liverpool manager added.
“We could have scored early with two significant moments from Costas (Timikas) and a header from Virgil (Van Dyck) and then you didn’t score a goal, but at the break we didn’t say we needed to change.
“Then we missed that goal and you could see it was a little tense, the atmosphere was tense and it makes sense to make early changes to calm down again and we did it literally with Thiago and changing the system to 4-4- 2 and you have to end the situation ”.
