Mohamed Salah expresses regret for an unique Liverpool goal in the tense 2-2 tie with Manchester City.
In Liverpool’s 2-2 tie with Manchester City at Anfield, Mohamed Salah scored one of the season’s best goals.
On Sunday, Liverpool star Mohamed Salah cemented his claim as the Premier League’s finest player by completing a wonderful move with a spectacular solo goal – but he regrets the strike because it was insufficient to win the game in a 2-2 draw with Manchester City.
Salah took up the ball on the right side of the pitch with his back to goal, surrounded by three Manchester City players and pushed into a ditch with no visible escape option.
Salah, however, found space and took the ball past four opponents before changing the ball to his right foot and slamming it past a helpless Ederson, leaving the Brazilian perplexed, neutrals stunned, and Liverpool fans in awe.
It isn’t the first time their Egyptian winger has produced out-of-the-ordinary performances.
Salah, who won the Puskas award four years ago for a brilliantly curled drive against Everton at home in 2017, as well as a slew of other long-range attempts including howitzers against Chelsea and Roma, was the man to beat.
However, the lightning-quick forward has gone on public to express his disappointment with the goal, which did not result in a victory in the title duel at Anfield.
Just five minutes later, Kevin De Bruyne’s deflected attempt past Joel Matip ensured that the points were shared on Merseyside, with City probably deserving of a point for their entire performance.
Salah, though, expressed his displeasure with his wondergoal being worth only a point in a press conference thereafter.
“I’ll have to keep an eye on that,” Salah added.
“I have a vague recollection of it.” It would be more special if we won the game, but the result is what matters; it’s a good goal, but there’s not much else to say.” Pep Guardiola’s City side were really unlucky not to be leading at the break, as they applied tremendous sustained pressure to the Anfield Road end.
However, their absence of a striker and Ilkay Gundogan’s late arrival in the area were apparent, as they lacked any kind of attacking threat up front.
Salah nearly made them pay with his sixth goal in as many games. “Brinkwire News Summary.”
