Mohamed Salah’s goal against West Ham helped him break another Premier League record.
The Reds star won a penalty for his team after being brought down in the box by Nayef Aguerd.
Salah ran onto Luis Diaz’s cross, which had initially eluded Darwin Nunez, with the Egyptian king taking a touch before racing towards goal.
But the Liverpool talisman’s move was halted by the West Ham centre-back, who failed to collect the ball as he tried to stop Salah in his tracks and caught the winger on his way.
“It’s as clear a penalty as you’ll see all season,” said talkSPORT’s reporter for the match, Matt Jones.
Salah converted from the spot, sending West Ham’s Alphonse Areola the wrong way as he sent the ball into the net.
As a result, he is now the first player in Premier League history to score or assist twice in 12 consecutive matches.
He first achieved this feat from August to December 2021 and his current run began in April this year.
The Hammers found themselves level before half-time, Jarrod Bowen firing the ball onto the post and with a diving header.
