Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah equalled Jamie Vardy’s record of scoring or assisting in 15 consecutive Premier League matches as Liverpool came from a goal down to see off Newcastle 3-1 on Wednesday night.
Jonjo Shelvey gave the Magpies the lead inside the opening 10 minutes with a fine strike from the edge of the box, before Diogo Jota equalised in the 21st minute.
Salah then scored a rebound four minutes later after Sadio Mane’s initial attempt was saved by the goalkeeper.

Trent Alexander-Arnold wrapped up the win in spectacular fashion late, scoring an absolute screamer to ensure the Reds kept pace with league leaders, Manchester City.
It was also Liverpool’s 2,000th win in the league, making them the first team in the Premier League to reach that milestone.
Up next for Jurgen Klopp’s team is a clash against Tottenham, even though it’s in danger of being postponed due to the rise in Covid-19 cases at the London club.
