Mohamed Salah's goalscoring prowess keeps giving Liverpool fans cause to celebrate. The Egyptian footballer found the back of the net twice for Klopp's men, which proved crucial for their Premier League title hopes. Furthermore, Salah's goals helped him reach a couple of milestones during his stint in the Premier League.
First off, Salah became the fourth fastest footballer in Premier League history to score 50 goals in the English top flight. Only Andy Cole, Alan Shearer and Ruud Van Nistelrooy reached that number faster than the Egyptian, while Fernando Torres needed the same amount of games as Salah to accomplish that feat.

The Egyptian ace did not stop there, as he also became the eighth African player to score 50 goals in the English tournament. That list includes some top-caliber names such as Didier Drogba, Emmanuel Adebayor, Yaya Touré and Sadio Mané. Needless to say, he's the first Egyptian to accomplish that feat.

Salah is currently the Premier League's top scorer with 16 goals. If Liverpool want to keep their current top spot in the English top flight, giving Salah all options to keep scoring will surely come in handy for Klopp's men.
