Mo Salah is now officialy Liverpool’s top goalscorer ever in the Premier League.
A perfect day all around, Salah scored twice, meaning he is now 1 goal ahead of Fowler with 129 goals.
An excellent team performance, the Liverpool team were all made up for Mo smashing the goal record, which has stood since 2007.
Robertson spoke to Liverpool’s official website:
“And then the record-breaker, I don’t know how many records he’s broken, but I know that one means a lot to him. Obviously Robbie Fowler was a fantastic player for this club, a legend in his own right, and for Mo to beat him he’ll go down as one of the greats for this club, for the Premier League,” he said.
“But for this club he’ll go down as one of the all-time greats, and he deserves everything he got. He got a massive cheer in the changing room when he came in.
“He’s a fantastic player, a fantastic person and he’ll be hungry for more. We’re hungry for more. It’s been a good weekend for us in terms of results and what we’ve done, but we need to keep going.”
He commneted further on whether Liverpool can finish in the top 4: “Obviously playing on the Sunday, you sit back and watch all the other results. We knew Newcastle would have a tough game at Man City, and Tottenham dropping points at Wolves, but we know in this league anyone can beat anyone”.
“When they’re the two that you’re really chasing for the spots, it’s important you capitalise when both of them drop points. That was one of the motivations [for Sunday]. We don’t need much motivation to play against Man United but that was an extra motivation”.
“The table will look a lot healthier but it’s still not what we want to see. We need to keep pushing, we need a strong finish to the end of the season and we’re making good steps to doing that. But we have to carry this momentum forward and hopefully we can get top four”.
