The Egypt international has enjoyed great fortunes against the Hammers, and that run continued on Monday evening at Anfield Stadium
The Egyptian’s second-half effort helped the Reds survive the Hammers’ scare in the Premier League five-goal thriller.
69′ – Great play down the left from Robertson and he cuts the ball back for Salah. His low drive finds a way into the bac of the net and we’re level. Keep it going, Reds!![2-2]#LIVWHU https://t.co/Pc8Fiu0YR8

While the game was heading for a 2-2 draw, Sadio Mane had the final say to hand Jurgen Klopp’s men all three points.
Unfortunately for West Ham, their Salah-related misery continued as the Egypt international breached their backline once again.
The ex-Chelsea man boasts of an enviable record against the Hammers, who hold the dubious distinction of being one of Salah’s favourite opponents.
Thanks to this victory, Klopp’s team extends their lead in the English topflight log with 79 points – a far cry from Manchester City’s 57 points.
Liverpool travel to Vicarage Road for a date with Watford in their next outing on Saturday.
