Liverpool star Mohamed Salah has achieved yet another Premier League record with his goal against Leeds.

The Egyptian, who put the Reds 2-0 up at Elland Road, has now racked up the most left-footed goals in the history of the competition.

Following Cody Gakpo’s opening goal for Liverpool at Elland Road, Salah raced onto the end of Diogo Jota’s through ball.

He then hit a first time effort towards goal and found the top left corner, with Leeds goalkeeper Illan Meslier beaten at his near post.

Such a goal is Salah’s 106th in the Premier League with his left foot, and has seen him overtake Liverpool icon Robbie Fowler for the record.

It is also his 25th goal of the season across all competitions, with the 30-year-old shining despite his side’s poor overall campaign.

Luis Sinisterra pulled one back for the home side at the start of the second half but Diogo Jota restored Liverpool’s two-goal advantage on 52 minutes.

Salah then grabbed his second of the night just 12 minutes later, with this one also coming from his left foot.

Jota scored once again for the Reds in the latter stages, with Darwin Nunez getting in on the act just before stoppage time.

Many Leeds fans were quick to head for the exits, with the club sitting only two points above the relegation zone.

It is also the second home game in a row in which they have conceded at least five goals following their 5-1 defeat to Crystal Palace.

For Liverpool on the other hand, the result still gives them hope on qualifying for European football next season.

Jurgen Klopp’s side are 8th in the table, but remain nine points outside of the top four.
