Mohamed Salah reaches impressive Liverpool landmark with Merseyside derby strike against Everton
Oct. 17, 2020
Mohamed Salah became the third fasted Liverpool player to 100 goals with his strike during the dramatic 2-2 draw with Everton.
The 28-year-old has been a revelation since joining the Reds for £34million from Roma in 2017.
Salah has now scored 100 goals in 159 appearances and played a huge role in helping them win last season’s Premier League and the Champions League in 2018/19.
However, his fantastic strike on Saturday was not enough for all three points at Goodison Park in an eventful Merseyside derby .
Jurgen Klopp’s side got off to a blistering start as Sadio Mane slammed them in front but Liverpool lost star defender Virgil van Dijk minutes later after he was scythed down by Pickford, who was lucky to escape a sending off.
Michael Keane levelled the scores with a glancing header from a corner but Salah restored the away side’s lead on 72 minutes.
Man of the moment Calvert-Lewin didn’t have many chances but made his big one count with a towering header.
Richarlison was sent off for an awful challenge on Thiago Alcantara and it looked like Liverpool had won it in stoppage-time as Jordan Henderson struck through Pickford.
But the Toffees and their keeper were spared by Mane being offside in the build-up with the most marginal VAR call.

Roger Hunt, who played for Liverpool between 1958 and 1969, is the quickest player to reach 100 goals as he achieved the feat in just 144 matches.
Meanwhile, Jack Parkinson follows him in second place with 100 strikes in 153 appearances, which came in the early 1900s.
Salah’s century of goals see him become the 17th different Liverpool player to reach that landmark.
He started the 2020/21 season in prolific form by netting a hat-trick in a 4-3 opening day win over Leeds.
