The Egyptian professional football player Mohamed Salah continued his superb scoring form as Liverpool made its six Premier League wins in a row by defeating Brent ford to move one point behind Manchester United in the race for the top four.

Salah became the first player in Reds history to score in nine consecutive home appearances, while his winner was his 100th goal for the Reds at Anfield.

His 13th-minute attempt was not the most eye-catching goal of his career – Salah bundling the ball over the line from close range after Virgil van Dijk’s cushioned header across the six-yard box.

But his 30th goal of the season set Jurgen Klopp’s side on the way to another crucial win that keeps alive Liverpool’s outside hopes of qualifying for next season’s Champions League.

Liverpool are on 62 points, one behind fourth-placed Manchester United who have two games in hand – including one at struggling West Ham on Sunday (19:00 BST).

Liverpool, who won just two of their opening eight Premier League games, are ending the season strongly but are also running out of games in their bid to qualify for the Champions League.

They have just three more left – Leicester away, Aston Villa at home and Southampton away.
