Liverpool striker, Mohamed Salah has had a brilliant 2021/22 season so far and the Egyptian once again was on the scoresheet during the Reds 2-1 win against AC Milan in the Champions League on Tuesday.

Salah's strike on the night meant that he equalled footballing superstar, Cristiano Ronaldo's Champions League record of scoring in seven consecutive away games, becoming only the second player to do so after Ronaldo managed the same for Real Madrid from 2013 to 2014.

The last time Salah failed to score in an away Champions League game was in October 2020, when Liverpool beat Ajax 1-0. His goal on the night also meant that the Egyptian reached the 20 mark for the fifth consecutive season - the first Liverpool player to manage that feat since Ian Rush did so six years in a row from 1981-82 to 1986-87.

The 29-year-old has established himself as arguably the best player in the world at the moment, netting 20 goals in 21 appearances in all competitions so far this season in addition to registering nine assists in the Premier League.

Salah has been a key part of Liverpool's success in the recent past and Jurgen Klopp will be hoping that he can continue his good form if the Reds are to win trophies come the end of the campaign.
