Mohamed Salah breaks Arsenal legend’s record after scoring in Liverpool’s Europa League victory

In Liverpool’s most recent Europa League victory, Mohamed Salah scored a goal that shattered a record previously held by Arsenal legend Thierry Henry since 2006.

On Thursday night at Anfield, Liverpool dominated Toulouse with a 5-1 victory, courtesy of goals from Diego Jota, Wataru Endo, Darwin Nunez, Ryan Gravenberch, and Salah.

Salah, the Egyptian winger, entered the game with approximately 20 minutes remaining and delivered a spectacular goal in the 93rd minute.

This marked his 43rd goal in major European competitions for Liverpool, making him the highest-scoring player for an English club in such competitions.

Out of these 43 goals, 41 were netted in the Champions League, with the remaining two coming in the Europa League this season.

This achievement surpasses Thierry Henry’s record of 42 goals during his time at Arsenal, with 35 in the Champions League and seven in the UEFA Cup.

This accomplishment adds to Salah’s remarkable collection of records, which already includes the title of the most Champions League goals for an English club, the highest number of goals scored in UEFA club competitions by an African player, and the distinction of being Liverpool’s all-time leading goalscorer in both the Premier League and European competitions.

“It’s really easy to fall in love with this team because there is a lot of excitement there,” Reds manager Jurgen Klopp said after the Toulouse win.

“You saw in the moments where it was difficult. Most of the time we were in complete control.

“We made good goals, nobody got hurt, perfect night. We could bring the kids on.”
