Mohamed Salah has become the first Liverpool player to score 20 goals in three different Premier League seasons.
The Egyptian netted the opener at Anfield as the Reds took on Newcastle on Saturday afternoon with a wonderful goal.
He controlled brilliantly in the box before swivelling and powerfully firing past Martin Dubravka.
It was his 20th league goal of the campaign with Tottenham star Harry Kane the only other to reach the mark this season with 21.
Though Salah, who bagged 32 goals in 2017/18 and 22 the following season, is the first to reach 20 in three different campaigns for the Reds.
Luis Suarez and Robbie Fowler had both passed 20 on two occasions, with Fernando Torres only doing it once.
And fans were quick to praise Salah following his goal at Anfield, with one writing on social media: “He so underrated. If Salah played for any other team he would be much more noticed and respected. One of the best wingers to ever play in the Prem.”
And another put: “So underrated, truly one of the greatest players to ever play for Liverpool.”
With a third adding: “He's world class and one of the best in the Premier League.”
Salah’s 32 goals in 2017/18 earned him the Premier League golden boot on his debut season on Merseyside.
He was joint winner the following campaign, along with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Sadio Mane.
Salah didn’t win it last year as Liverpool won the league, though said: “Winning the Premier League is amazing for the club and the city. I’ve now reached my biggest goal, the one I set for myself since I signed for Liverpool.

“When I set my mind on something I want to achieve, I always do. If I’m convinced that I can achieve something, thank God I always do.
“The first question that I was asked since joining Liverpool was that if we were able to win the league and Champions League. That’s why it feels great being able to win something I pledged to win.”
