Liverpool Star Mohamed Salah Becomes First Premier League Player To Score Nine Champions League Goals In A Season Since Ruud van Nistelrooy

Mohamed Salah’s stunning season continues after his first-half double against Roma.

The Liverpool star became the first Premier League player to score nine goals in a single Champions League campaign since Ruud van Nistelrooy in 2002-03.

The Egyptian star opened the scoring against his former side with a stunner on 35 minutes.

The 25-year-old cut in from the right to curl a beauty into the top corner, giving Roma keeper Alisson no chance.

He doubled the Premier League side’s lead just before the break – racing through on goal to coolly dink the ball over the onrushing keeper.

That makes it nine in Europe’s top competition and he is now three behind the former Manchester United forward’s haul fifteen years ago.
