Salah scores on return as Liverpool beat Brentford

Mohamed Salah scored on his return from injury as Liverpool kept their foot on the throttle in the Premier League title race with a 4-1 win at Brentford on Saturday (Feb 17) to go provisionally five points clear at the summit.

Mohamed Salah scored on his return from injury as Liverpool beat Brentford to maintain their lead at the top of the Premier League. Darwin Nunez put Liverpool ahead with a superb chip before Alexis Mac Allister poked in a second at the Gtech Community Stadium. Salah, back from a hamstring problem sustained on Egypt duty at the Africa Cup of Nations, got on the scoresheet with a crisp finish. Ivan Toney pulled a goal back for Brentford, but Cody Gakpo added the gloss for Liverpool with a late strike.

The victory temporarily sent Liverpool five points clear at the summit, but Arsenal's 5-0 victory over Burnley later in the day reduced the deficit to two points again.

The only sour points for Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp from the win at the Gtech Community Stadium were more additions to a lengthening injury list.

Curtis Jones and Diogo Jota were taken off before half-time, while Nunez was substituted at the interval.
