Mohammed Salah has equaled a Premier League record after making it 15 matches in a row with a goal or assist, equaling Jamie Vardy’s Premier League record set last season.
The Egyptian scored his 22nd goal of the season as Liverpool closed the gap on Premier League leaders Manchester City with a hard-fought win over Newcastle.
After an early scare, Liverpool found a way to keep pace with Manchester City atop the Premier League table, beating down an out-gunned Newcastle United to win 3-1.
Jonjo Shelvey opened the scoring just seven minutes in as Liverpool was stunned at the back, but the hosts quickly recovered to get goals from Diogo Jota and Mohamed Salah before the break, turning the game on its head. Trent Alexander-Arnold then delivered an absolute rocket to put the game away in the final minutes.
Newcastle remain 19th in the table, three points from safety, and their task to avoid relegation does not get any easier when they host Pep Guardiola’s league leaders on Sunday.
