Liverpool defeated Brentford 4-1 on the road on Saturday, February 17, solidifying their lead in the Premier League standings.
Darwin Nunez, Mohamed Salah, Alexis Mac Allister, and Cody Gakpo all scored goals to guarantee the visitors all three points.

Following Diogo Jota’s injury in the first half, Salah entered the game from the bench. The Egyptian mastermind missed the previous several games due to an injury he sustained while playing for his country.

The 31-year-old put the game beyond doubt by adding his name to the scoresheet after setting up MacAllister’s goal. Liverpool could have won by a different amount, but they missed a few close-range shots.

With Salah’s goal today, they recorded their first victory at Brentford in the Premier League era, and Alan Shearer was all over Salah. He expressed his response on X. “Mohamed Salah is an incredible player,” the well-known expert wrote.

Salah has once again been a sensational display from Liverpool’s forwards. In the Premier League, the Reds hero has scored 14 goals and provided eight assists.

Although Arsenal and Manchester City play later today, Liverpool has now seized a five-point lead over other title contenders. It didn’t take him long to pick up the form where he left off.

The injuries to Diogo Jota and Curtis Jones, two important players, will be Klopp’s sole worry.

In the first half, Jota and Jones were substituted, and Jota will probably have tests in the coming days. He has been Liverpool’s finest player lately, so the loss of him for an extended length of time would be devastating.
