After playing to a dull goalless draw with Manchester United last weekend, Liverpool proved that they weren’t the guilty party for the lack of strikes in the north-south derby.
And they did what no other English team has ever done in the Champions League – score seven goals in an away match on Tuesday without conceding to prove their point.
Slovenian club Maribor was on the receiving end of the record scoreline, which is the best away win for an English club in Europe, and now double hero Mohamed Salah wants the Reds to continue blasting away rivals.
Roberto Firmino also grabbed a brace as yster Philippe Coutinho, youngster Trent Alexander-Arnold and new signing Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain all got on the scoresheet.
The victory has given Liverpool the confidence to be more clinical in front of goal, according to Salah.
The Egypt ace says: “I think it’s an important result for us so we have to keep looking forward and we have to win the next games.
“In the last three or four games we missed many chances... and we had bad luck.
“I think that everyone has confidence that the good result is coming, so now we are in a good position and I’m sure in the next games it will be the same.”
The 25-year-old has now scored eight goals in 13 appearances for Liverpool but was more occupied with team performance than personal records.
Ahead of Sunday’s Premier League trip to Tottenham, he adds: “The team did good and we had a good result so that’s the most important thing.
“I’m very happy for that - seven goals or eight goals [scored since he joined Liverpool] doesn’t change anything, but the most important thing for us is to concentrate on improving the results in the Premier League.”
