Liverpool ace, Mohamed Salah, has reacted to becoming Liverpool’s all-time top Premier League scorer.

Salah achieved the feat after scoring a brace in Liverpool’s 7-0 win over Manchester United on Sunday.

The Egyptian international said it was very special for him to become the club’s all-time top scorer in the Premier League, adding that it cannot lie.

His first goal in the 66th minute drew him level with Liverpool legend Robbie Fowler’s tally of 128 goals, before his second strike took him clear of the former striker whose record had stood since 2007.

Reacting, Salah told Sky Sports after the game, “It’s very special, I can’t lie.

“This record was in my mind since I came here. After my first season, I was always chasing the record.

“To get it today against United with that result is unbelievable. I’m going home to celebrate with the family, Chamomile tea and sleep!”
