Salah: It’s a good feeling to score 50th goal in English Football

Liverpool ground out a tough 1-0 win at Huddersfield Town, on Saturday evening, with Mohamed Salah scoring the only goal of the game.

The Egyptian latched onto a Xherdan Shaqiri pass midway through the first half, before tucking the ball into the back of the net to score his 50th goal in English football.

Speaking after the game, the Liverpool number 11 said he was pleased to reach the landmark, although the most important thing was the result:

“It’s a good feeling, as I said, the most important thing is to help the team get the result and now we are on track. It doesn’t worry me [when I don’t score], the most important thing is the team, so as long as I help them get the result I’m not worried,” he told BT Sport.

“We had four or five players starting in the team for first time. All of us are at the same level so we have to fight [for our places].”

Salah and his Liverpool teammates will be delighted to have come away from John Smith’s Stadium with all three points after a very spirited performance from David Wagner’s Huddersfield side.

Liverpool are now up to second in the Premier League, level on points with Manchester City with 23 points and face Red Star Belgrade at Anfield in the Champions League on Wednesday night.
