Salah equals Gerrard as Liverpool's all-time leading Champions League goalscorer

With his goal against Atalanta last night, Liverpool's Mohamed Salah has now equaled Steven Gerrard as Liverpool's top goalscorer in European Cup and Champions League history.

Salah netted a stunning breakaway goal early in the second half against Atalanta as the Reds tore the Serie A side apart in a 5-0 victory.

That strike, a composed left-footed finish at the end of a rapid burst forward, was the Egypt international's 21st in the Champions League proper for the team, and the forward has therefore tied Gerrard's all-time club benchmark.

Liverpool are now in pole position to qualify for the knockout phase after going top of Group D, five points clear of Ajax and Atalanta who are both on four.
