Liverpool’s no.11 Mo Salah became the fastest player in the history of our brilliant club to 50 goals on Wednesday evening – having completed the feat in a remarkable 65 games.
But you wouldn’t have known it judging by the player’s mooted celebration, which mirrored his reactions to not only his first-half effort but also the goal versus Huddersfield from the weekend.
As Liverpool fans, we’re not worried, and are far more interested that Salah is simply finding the back of the net again!
Pundit and former Arsenal defender Martin Keown reckons the explanation is fairly simple – and is just a reflection of the Egyptian’s calm, respectful personality.
“Salah looks like he is trying to remain humble when he scores,” Keown told the MailOnline. “The way he celebrates suggests he realises how lucky he is to be doing what he is doing.
“While he seems to be returning to his best, there were a couple of moments against Red Star when he fluffed his lines when through on goal.”
Whatever the reason, it’s not because Salah is unhappy with life at Liverpool.
Following the 4-0 victory over Red Star, Salah took to Twitter to express his glee at reaching the milestone – and few would bet against him adding to the tally against Cardiff on Saturday afternoon.

He’s had to endure some criticism from the media and opposition fans this term for not yet reaching the heights he managed last season – but the reality is he’s on six goals already and looks set to go on another epic run during the winter months – as he did last term.
We wouldn’t be surprised if the brilliant 25-year-old hit 30+ goals again.
