Liverpool star Mohamed Salah breaks another Premier League record in Tottenham win

Mohamad Salah

Mohamed Salah has once again etched his name into the Premier League record books as Liverpool secured a vital 4-2 victory over Tottenham. The 31 year old winger kick-started the scoring just 15 minutes into the game, and his saved shot was later converted by Andy Robertson just before half-time.

Cody Gakpo added a third, with Salah setting up Harvey Elliott for a stunning late goal. Tottenham managed to claw back two goals in the final moments of the match and were close to being awarded a penalty when Joe Gomez's high foot caught Brennan Johnson.

However, Jurgen Klopp's side weathered the storm to ensure their title hopes remain alive. The win also allowed Salah to bask in his latest historic achievement.

According to Opta statistics, Salah is the first player in Premier League history to score at least 10 goals and provide at least 10 assists in three consecutive seasons. He also joins Manchester United legend Wayne Rooney as only the second player to achieve this double feat in five separate seasons.

Despite recent tensions with Klopp following his substitution in last Saturday's disappointing 2-2 draw with West Ham, Salah's performance against Tottenham proves he remains a crucial asset for Liverpool, reports the Mirror.

"Mo was absolutely outstanding," the Reds manager told Sky Sports post-match.

"He played a really good game. His side with Harvey was good. I was pleased for him. None of the boys want to play not great, why would they? Mo showed what he is capable of.

Liverpool now have two final games before Klopp's tenure comes to an end, although their hopes of winning a second league title under the German boss will officially be over if Manchester City pick up all three points at Fulham next Saturday. "Anfield was a special place today," Klopp added.

"We were 4-0 up, I made the changes and we lost organisation. Tottenham showed how good they could be. I was happy with the performance."

"We were good in pretty much all areas offensively. The passes were good. So many things were good. We stayed calm. As long as they don't break the lines then it's fine, let them pass. I liked our game a lot. The goals were outstanding."
