Salah beats Mane to Liverpool Goal of the Month award

The Egyptian star scored three goals last month and his first strike against Southampton has been voted as the best

Mohamed Salah pipped Sadio Mane to win Liverpool‘s Goal of the Month award for February.

Salah scored two goals in the Reds’ 4-0 win over Southampton on February 1 and his first strike on that day has claimed the club’s monthly gong.

The 27-year-old scored in style at Anfield by dinking his effort over Saints’ goalkeeper Alex McCarthy to give Liverpool a 3-0 lead.

The strike gathered the most votes while Mane’s lone strike against Norwich City on February 15 finished second.

Liverpool boosted their Premier League title hopes with a 2-1 win over Bournemouth on Saturday, which gave them a 25-point lead above second-placed Manchester City.

After conceding an early goal against the Cherries, Salah inspired the Reds’ fight-back with his equaliser before Mane scored the match-winning goal in the 33rd minute.

The equaliser was Salah’s 70th goal on his 100th appearance for Liverpool and Klopp was full of praise for the Egyptian, describing the two-time African Footballer of the Year as a “world-class” and “outstanding” striker.

“I don’t think he needed that goal to do that, but it helps obviously that people [will] remember you,” Klopp told the club website.

“Incredibly important goal, a super performance – a really, really good game of Mo. 

“He is an outstanding striker, a world-class striker. It’s really nice, I’m really happy for him that he reached that mark and I think Sadio has the chance to do similar stuff. That would be really cool.

“We need the boys because with all the good stuff you can do on the pitch, in the end you need somebody to finish it off and very often, thank God, it was Mo.”
