Mohamed Salah scored twice as Liverpool maintained their 100% winning record at Anfield this season with a 3-0 victory over Brentford on Sunday (Nov 12), their sixth successive Premier League win at home. Salah – who now has 200 goals in English football with Liverpool and Chelsea – became the first player in history to score in each of Liverpool's first six home league games of a season as Jurgen Klopp's side climbed above Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal into second in the table on 27 points after 12 games. Brentford, who saw their three-match winning run end, are 10th on 16 points.
Mohamed Salah scored twice as Liverpool maintained their 100% record at Anfield this season with victory against Brentford to move up to second in the Premier League.
Salah opened the scoring just before the break, latching onto a pass from Darwin Nunez before placing a finish beyond Mark Flekken.
That was Salah's ninth Premier League goal of the season and his 10th arrived midway through the second half when he nodded in from Kostas Tsimikas' cross.
Salah – once again excellent on home soil – really should have had a hat-trick, having also volleyed over from a superb Trent Alexander-Arnold cross just before half-time.
Diogo Jota then rounded off another dominant home display with a thumping strike.
Brentford's best chance had come in the first half, when Bryan Mbeumo raced through on goal but his chipped effort was tame and cleared off the line by Alexander-Arnold.
The victory means Liverpool have 27 points and move ahead of Arsenal on goal difference, while Brentford are 10th.
