Who said it was sluggish… Salah, 6 years in a row ’20 goal record’ achieved

 Liverpool ace Mohamed Salah set a record as he started the scorer.

Liverpool won 2-0 in the 2022/23 Premier League home game against Wolverhampton Wanderers held at Anfield in Liverpool, England on the 2nd (Korean time).

Liverpool, who finished the first half 0-0, wanted to take the lead when Darwin Núñez scored in the 21st minute of the second half, but as a result of the VAR review, Diogo Jota’s foul scene was confirmed before the goal was scored, and Núñez’s goal was canceled.

Liverpool, whose goal was canceled, shook Wolverhampton’s net again shortly after. In the 28th minute of the second half, Virgil van Dijk headed Jota’s cross in the midst of a scramble in front of the goal, scoring the opening goal.

Just four minutes after Van Dijk’s opening goal, Liverpool scored an extra goal. In the 32nd minute of the second half, Konstantinos Tsimikas’ pass, which succeeded in breaking through quickly from the left flank, was pushed into the goal by Salah, creating an additional goal.

With Van Dijk’s opening goal and Salah’s additional goal in the second half, Liverpool overtook Wolverhampton and scored 39 points, surpassing Fulham and leaping to 6th place in the Premier League.

This match was a particularly meaningful one for Salah. This is because he scored his ninth league goal against Wolverhampton and succeeded in scoring 20 goals in all competitions this season.

British media BBC said, “Salah, who started playing for Liverpool from the 2017/18 season, has scored more than 20 goals in six consecutive seasons.”

He added, “Among the Premier League players this season, only two players have scored more goals than Salah (20 goals), Elling Hollan (Man City, 33 goals) and Marcus Rashford (Man United, 25 goals).” 스포츠토토

Salah is a self-proclaimed Liverpool ace and one of the best strikers in the Premier League. During his six-year spell at Liverpool, he scored over 20 goals each season and was the Premier League’s top scorer alone a whopping three times.

Last season, he scored 23 goals in the league alone, and tied for first place with Korean striker Son Heung-min (Tottenham Hotspur), winning the Golden Boot, which is only given to the top scorer in the Premier League.

Salah, who signed a new contract with Liverpool ahead of this season, heard a lot of criticism that he was somewhat sluggish compared to his last season. In the winter transfer market, he was also plagued by rumors of leaving Saint-Germain in Paris, France.

However, after consistently scoring goals regardless of criticism, he broke through the 20-goal mark early and is active as an axis of Liverpool’s Premier League reversal.
