Thu 10 December 2020 | 8:16

Salah scored for the Reds on Wednesday night against Midtjylland to overtake Steven Gerrard to become the club’s all-time top scorer in the Champions League.

Mohamed Salah

put Liverpool ahead early in the game with his first-minute strike against Denmark’s Midtjylland on Wednesday.

The goal was his 22nd in the Champions League for the Reds – surpassing the former record of 21 held by

Steven Gerrard

, Liverpool’s 2005 Champions League winner.

Salah’s early goal against Danish opponents was also Liverpool’s fastest ever goal in the competition.

The game had nothing riding on it in terms of final group positions as Liverpool have already secured qualification in the 5th fixture.

Klopp was happy that he was able to rotate his team in the Champions League giving chance to youngsters, as his side will face several difficult matches in the Premier League.

The Red will be in action against Fulham on Sunday before their battle against Tottenham.

Liverpool are standing second in the Premier League table level on points with Tottenham, with Spurs in first place on goal difference.
