10 impressive stats as Mohamed Salah makes more history against Brentford



Liverpool had to work for three points against Brentford, but a solitary goal from Mohamed Salah was enough to secure six wins from six.

The Reds took an early lead and were able to keep their second consecutive clean sheet to take the spoils at Anfield and continue an impressive winning streak.

Salah has been breaking records and achieving milestones on an almost weekly basis this season and was once again able to make even more history in the Liverpool chapter of his career.

Here are 10 key stats from Liverpool’s win over Brentford.

– Liverpool have won six consecutive Premier League games, with each of their last five exactly one goal away. The Reds are the first team in the competition to win five consecutive games by a single goal since Birmingham in December 2009.

– Salah’s winner was his 100th goal at Anfield for the Reds.

– It’s the third season in a row that Salah has scored at least 30 goals in all competitions, only the fourth player in the club’s history to do so – according to Michael Reid.

– Alisson has become the seventh Liverpool goalkeeper to record 100 clean sheets for the club in all competitions. Elisha Scott, Tommy Lawrence, Ray Clemence, Bruce Grobbelaar, David James and Pepe Reina are the others. – Liverpool’s 19 fouls against Brentford are the most they’ve committed in a single game since 2015 and the most at Anfield since 2010. Anthony Taylor was certainly pleased with the whistle.

– The 1-0 win was Liverpool’s 1,300th top-flight victory at Anfield.
– Liverpool have lost just one of their last 41 home league games – to Leeds in October.

– Since December 2009, Liverpool have never lost at Anfield at half time. During that time, there have been 135 games, 122 wins and 13 draws with break wins.

– Salah has now scored in nine consecutive games at Anfield, becoming the first player in the club’s history to do so.

– The Egyptian goal also made him the club’s fifth all-time goalscorer, tied with Steven Gerrard on 186 goals. I’m sorry, Stevie, you’ll be in the rearview mirror in a moment.

There was a remarkable set of stats that emerged from the Reds’ win over Brentford, with Salah delivering some of the best of them. Liverpool have three games left this season. Who said there would be no more history for the Egyptian?


Worst-case scenario for Manchester United as Liverpool secures a top-four position in the final stretch

Just four points currently separate Man United and Liverpool in the race for a top-four finish, but the Reds have two games to go before Sunday’s game against West Ham.

Manchester United missed their chance to consolidate their grip on a top four finish on Thursday night, losing 1-0 to Brighton in dramatic circumstances at the Amex Stadium.

As a result of that defeat, Liverpool, who are currently fifth and one place behind United in the table, could close the gap to Erik ten Hag’s side to just one point this weekend. They will face Brentford on Saturday night at Anfield in pursuit of a sixth consecutive Premier League win.

If Liverpool win, the table will be jittery for United fans, but the Reds have two games left to face West Ham on Sunday and remain favorites to secure Champions League qualification. However, we considered a possible nightmare scenario, with United losing their top four.

Liverpool vs Brentford – LIVERPOOL WIN

West Ham United vs United – WEST HAM WIN

Victory for Liverpool on Saturday would elevate them to within a point of Ten Hag’s troops, putting United under stern pressure to win at West Ham just over 24 hours later. Should they achieve that, they would reopen a four-point cushion.

However, in the event of a defeat for United, they would remain just a point ahead of Liverpool, but would still have a game in hand.

4th: United – 63pts

Leicester City vs Liverpool – LIVERPOOL WIN

Back on home soil, United will be strong favourites to beat Wolves next Saturday. The Reds have been almost faultless at home this season and have not lost a league match at Old Trafford since the opening day of the season, meaning you would expect them to see off Julen Lopetegui’s side without too much trouble.

That would take United onto 66 points ahead of Liverpool facing Leicester just over 48 hours later. Liverpool will fancy their chances of winning at the King Power Stadium and a win would move them back to within a point of the Red

4th: United – 70pts

5th: Liverpool – 65pts

Bournemouth vs United – DRAW

Liverpool vs Aston Villa – LIVERPOOL WIN

A rare occasion where both clubs will play at exactly the same time, each kicking-off at 3pm. Both face tricky assignments in their own right, with United up against a much-improved Bournemouth side and Liverpool taking on a Villa team who have been revitalised in recent months under Unai Emery.

United’s fragility away from home could rear its ugly head again on the South Coast, potentially opening up an opportunity for Liverpool to climb above them for the first time, should they defeat Villa at Anfield. It could be a pivotal day.

4th: Liverpool – 68pts

5th: United – 67pts

United’s game in hand on Liverpool comes just three days before the final day of the season, meaning it could prove to be a defining night at Old Trafford. The Reds, such is their impressive home record and Chelsea’s struggles, will be strong favourites to beat Frank Lampard’s side and put them in command of their own destiny ahead of the final day.

4th: United – 70pts

5th: Liverpool – 68pts

United vs Fulham – DRAW

Southampton vs Liverpool – LIVERPOOL WIN

United have already beaten Fulham twice this season and a final day victory over them at Old Trafford would secure a top four finish, regardless of Liverpool’s result at Southampton. But in the event of United dropping points, a Liverpool win by any margin could seal them fourth.

At the time of writing, Liverpool’s goal difference is currently 15 better off than United’s, meaning it is hard to see Ten Hag’s side swinging that back in their favor.


4th: Liverpool – 71pts

5th: United – 71pts

In summary, Liverpool can finish on a maximum of 71 points, provided they win each of their last four games. United, by contrast, only need eight points from a possible 15 to achieve the same feat.
