How Salah's Brace Against Man U Helped Him To Become Liverpool's Highest Scorer In EPL History

After netting a brace brace in the 7-0 win over Manchester United on February 4, 2022, Mohamed Salah has broken at broken record. The Egyptian winger broke Robbie Fowler's record to become the highest EPL scorer for Anfield-based club. How did the former Chelsea player get to this level?

Prior to the match day 26 clash, the two time African Footballer of the year had scored one goal short of Fowler's 128 in the competition. Salah got level with the retired English striker when he got the second goal of the game 6 minutes after the hour mark. Seven minutes before regulation time, the 2018 FIFA Puskas Award winner netted his second goal of the game to raise his EPL tally to 129. This makes him one goal above the former England international. 

Meanwhile, he has only played 205 top premiership games for the Reds. This is 51 less Fowlers' 266. The February 4 game is the 11th time that Salah will play against Manchester United. With his brace in the game, the 3-time English top flight golden boot winner has got a dozen goals against the Red Devils. 

This has cemented his place as the player with most goals against Manchester United beating Alan Shearer's 10-goal record. We should all bear in mind that the winger also made two assists in the game to become the player with most goal involvements in the clash. His total EPL assists is now equal to that of playmakers like Mesut Özil, Eden Hazard and Juan Mata.

The match has given 20-time English champions their worst loss in the EPL. It is also the worst loss in the managerial career of Erik ten Hag. This makes the Jurgen Klopp the coach that has inflicted the highest defeat on Hag and Manchester United.
