Mohamed Salah scores his 200th Liverpool goal to spark comeback win over Crystal Palace

Having failed to score in his team’s previous two games, Mohamed Salah had to wait longer than many had expected for his milestone Liverpool goal.

But on Saturday, with the Reds a goal down against Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park, the Egyptian found the net when it mattered most to score his 200th Liverpool goal and 150th in the Premier League, sparking a comeback 2-1 victory for his team.

The 31-year-old is only the fifth player in the club’s history to score 200 goals or more, joining a selective group which includes Ian Rush, Roger Hunt, Gordon Hodgson and Billy Liddell.

“The most important thing is we’ve won the game,” Salah told TNT Sports after the 2-1 win. “When we win a game and I score goals it’s a great feeling but, yeah, I’m happy with the record and happy for the team.”

Liverpool had fallen behind to a Jean-Philippe Mateta penalty in the 57th minute, with the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) deeming that Jarell Quansah had fouled Mateta when trying to clear the ball.
