Mohamed Salah capitalized on some quick thinking by Liverpool to maintain his impressive scoring record at Anfield in a 2-0 win over last-place Fulham in the Premier League on Sunday.
In six league games at home, Salah has scored in five of them — the only blank coming against title rival Manchester City. The Egypt forward has 34 goals in 36 appearances at Anfield since joining Liverpool in the offseason of 2017.
It was a seventh straight loss for Fulham in all competitions, keeping the pressure on manager Slavisa Jokanovic heading into the two-week international break.
While Salah could yet match his prolific scoring from last season, when he finished as the league’s top scorer with 32 goals, two more factors are making Liverpool a more irresistible force as the team looks to become English champion for a 19th time — and first since 1990.
