Mohamed Salah: Why I loved scoring against Arsenal for Liverpool FC
Mohamed Salah explains why he was so delighted to open his Premier League account for Liverpool FC against Arsenal
Mohamed Salah has revealed his delight at the way he was able to open his Premier League account with Liverpool FC against Arsenal back in August.
Salah has been earning huge amounts of praise for his fine displays for Liverpool FC this season since his move to the club from Roma in the summer transfer window.
The Egypt international netted his first goal in the Premier League for Liverpool FC when Jurgen Klopp’s men ran riot and thrashed the Gunners 4-0 at Anfield back in August.
Salah has since continued his form and he netted 15 goals in his first 19 appearances in the Premier League for the Reds.
And the 25-year-old former Chelsea player has revealed why he was so happy to open his account in style against Arsenal at Anfield back in August.
Speaking to Sky Sports, Salah said: “I always like to score in the big games.
“I like the way I scored this goal [against Arsenal in August] – the speed, on the counter-attack – and the result was good for us. I always like to score at Anfield, especially in these kind of games.
“I was thinking if someone was on the other side I would have passed, 100 per cent, but I was fast, maybe faster than anyone at that moment, so I took the decision to shoot. I missed some chances before, but this was good.”
Salah also scored in Liverpool FC’s thrilling 3-3 draw with Arsenal last week.
Salah will be expecting to feature for Liverpool FC when the Reds return to Premier League action on Saturday with a home clash against Leicester City.
Liverpool FC will take on FC Porto in the last 16 of the Champions League in February as they look to try and progress through to the quarter-finals of Europe’s elite club competition.
