Mohamed Salah expressed the joy of achieving the milestone and urged his team to aim for "something special" in the Premier League title race, scoring his 200th goal for Liverpool.
Salah's crucial goal contributed to Liverpool's comeback from a goal down to secure a 2-1 victory against 10-man Crystal Palace, with Harvey Elliott delivering the stoppage-time winner.
Reflecting on his landmark goal, Salah, now the fifth player to score 200 for Liverpool in all competitions, emphasized the importance of the team's victory. "The most important thing was that we won the game. It's a great feeling. I'm happy for the record and that we won the game," said Salah.
Despite the win, Liverpool's position at the top of the table was temporary, with second-placed Arsenal having the chance to reclaim pole position later that Saturday. Regardless of the weekend outcome, Salah expressed confidence in Liverpool's title aspirations, highlighting the team's fighting mentality and the potential for something special this year.
Salah acknowledged the evolution of the team with new players and emphasized the role of providing advice to support their development. Praising substitute Harvey Elliott's crucial contribution, Salah noted, "He's a good kid. He's learning. I like to push him in the gym. He will have a good career."
Elliott, in turn, credited Salah for his influence and learning from the experienced player. Regarding Liverpool's title chances, the young midfielder expressed optimism, stating, "We're going in the right direction. If we're contenders at the end of the season, then let's go for it. The aim is to win the Premier League."
