Mo Salah surpasses Fowler to move into 2nd in Liverpool history books

Mohamed Salah beats Robbie Fowler and moves to second place in Liverpool's history books

The latest narrative contribution that Mohamed Salah evoked during Liverpool’s meeting with Manchester City this evening, made Al-Masry inscribe his name further in the club’s legendary history books.

What he could argue the most was the most important game of the Premier League season to date, which was played at the Etihad just a short time ago.

The confrontation in question saw the hero City meet with the Liverpool host led by Jurgen Klopp, trailing Sky Blues by only one point at the top of the English Premier League, in a possible decision to win the title.

The pulsating 90 minutes, in turn, continued to play between the two sides, eventually culminating in forcing them to take a share of the spoils.

This came after Diogo Jota canceled Kevin De Bruyne’s early opener, before City regained the lead thanks to Gabriel Jesus.

Less than 60 seconds into the second half, Liverpool struggled way back again, as Sadio Mane managed to pull off the crucial equalizer:

Only Gerrard to win

As shown in the footage above, Mane’s crucial goal was set up by attacking partner Mohamed Salah, who left a perfect pass for the former Southampton player with only Ederson to beat him.

And as noted above, in the process of packing his last passes, Salah also managed to get his name written down further in the history books preserved in the red half of Merseyside.

This comes after the Egyptian has now directly contributed to scoring 159 huge goals in the English Premier League in the colors of Liverpool.

This represents more than club legend Robbie Fowler managed during his stint with the Reds, leaving Salah behind only Steven Gerrard in the list of players at Anfield:
