Salah scores 200th historical goal as Liverpool comeback from a goal down to win 10-man Crystal Palace

Including failure to score in his team’s earlier two games, Mohamed Salah had to wait too far than many had anticipated for his high point Liverpool goal.

However on Saturday, with Liverpool losing to Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park, the Egyptian got the net when it was most important to score his 200th Liverpool goal and 150th
in the Premier League, flashing a return win for his team.

The main thing iswe’ve won the game, - Salah told TNT Sports after the 2-1 victory. Once we
win a game and I score goals it’s a huge feeling but, yeah, I’m glad with the proof and glad for the team.

The Reds were behindto a Jean-Philippe Mateta penalty in the 57th minute, with theVideo Assistant Referee (VAR) believing that Jarell Quansah had fouled Mateta when trying to kick the ball.

It was the ninthtime Liverpool had gone behind in a match this season, but no other in the
Premier League has won more than Liverpool’s 18 points from a losing situation.

Crystal Palace, whohas been languishing in the bottom-half of the league, was then abridged to 10-men when Jordan Ayew was sent off for two bookable fouls.

The Reds smartly exploitedwith Salah scoring just above a minute later, before Harvey Elliott who came in
scored the winner in extra time with a wonderful strike from the border of the

The victory getsLiverpool to the top of the table, although the Reds’ time on the top might be brief
if Arsenal beats Aston Villa in the final Premier League game of the day.

Although Liverpool conquered possession, Jurgen Klopp’s side was far from forceful until Salah flashed the renewal.

Pending Palace’s firstgoal neither team had created much of a threat in front of goal, which may
explain why the television cameras often turned to Hollywood star Hugh Jackman,
watching the match from the crowds, in the first half.

Plus while Salahwill correctly dictated the headlines, much recognition for the win should also go to Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson.

Alisson created astunning save from Jefferson Lerma in the first half, when the match was 0-0, and then showed why he is seen as one of the world’s best goalkeepers
by stopping Joachim Andersen from scoring in the final minutes of the game.
