Liverpool supporters have become accustomed to Mo Salah finding the back of the net in recent years. Ever since opening his account with a tap in against Watford back in 2017, the Egyptian King has scored 101 goals in 152 competitive appreances. Staggering numbers up there with the very best!

Here we look back at five of his finest Liverpool goals in no particular order. 

Everton, 10 December 2017

This strike virtually wrote the blueprint for the trademark Salah goal. Receiving the ball on the left edge of Everton’s penalty area with his back to goal, Salah shrugged Cuco Martina to the ground, cut inside on to his left foot, skipped past Idrissa Gana Gueye and, using Ashley Williams’ body as a shield, curled a shot around the centre-back and inside the far post. It was a goal deemed worthy of winning FIFA’s Puskas Award.

Tottenham, 4 February 2018

Similar in many ways to the goal he scored against City. Salah, closely marked by Dele Alli and Ben Davies, collected a pass from Roberto Firmino and got a lucky bounce which sent the ball rolling towards the touchline. His swift change of direction back towards his own goal sent Davies sliding past him, allowing the Egyptian to skip past the Spurs left-back and Jan Vertonghen to fire a shot over Huge Lloris from close range. Liverpool fans voted it their goal of the decade in 2020.

Chelsea, 14 April 2019

The very best execution of a typical Salah goal when he cuts in on his left foot. Virgil Van Dijk lofted a pass out to the right wing where Salah killed it in an instant and immediately set off infield, beating Emerson for strength and pace before drilling a rising shot into the top corner from 25 yards.

Salzburg, 10 December 2019

A goal all about pace and precision. Jordan Henderson’s lofted pass forward was weakly headed back by Salzburg centre-back Jerome Onguene and, as goalkeeper Cican Stankovic ran out to the left corner of his area, Salah tapped the ball past him and, still at full speed, clipped a curling right-footed shot from the just outside the area, only five yards from the touchline, which grazed the near post on its way to nesting in the side-netting on the far side of the goal.

Manchester City, 3 October 2021

Salah’s most recent goal at the time of writing. Picking the ball up outside of the box, the Egyptian does brilliantly well to out-muscle João Cancelo and skip away from a weak Bernado Silva challenge. He then drives into the box and leaves Aymeric Laporte for dead before lifting the ball coolly past Ederson.
