Mohamed Salah scored a goal for the seventh consecutive time as Liverpool defeated Newcastle United 2-0 and with that they moved up to the second place in the Premier League.
Salah broke the deadlock by scoring his 32nd goal of the season in all competitions, and with that he overtook Edinson Cavani (24) and Lionel Messi (20) in the big five leagues.
Sadio Mane in the second half added Liverpool’s second, his fifth goal in his last three matches after a series of quick exchanges that culminated in Roberto Firmino’s pass.
Salah found a way through before half-time, finishing off Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain’s pass to put Liverpool on track for a solid win ahead of Tuesday’s Champions League visit of Porto.
Daniel Sturridge became the only player to score in seven successive matches.
Salah also equalled Sturridge’s club record, whom he shared with Robbie Fowler, of scoring in 19 different Premier League fixtures.
Liverpool have now moved back into second place, with Manchester United having the chance to regain it against Crystal Palace on Monday.
