Liverpool ensured there was no happy return to Anfield for Steven Gerrard as Mohamed Salah’s second-half penalty earned a 1-0 win over Aston Villa.
Gerrard was welcomed with gentle applause as he emerged from the tunnel, but there was no great fanfare for the man who scored 186 goals in 710 games as a Liverpool player.
Salah has now scored 21 goals in 22 games this season but showed remarkable restraint to resist a shot at goal from Andy Robertson’s cut-back to allow Trent Alexander-Arnold to blast an effort that was headed for the top corner until it deflected off Matt Targett and behind for a corner.
The Egyptian King has scored or assisted a goal in every Liverpool match since Chelsea’s game in August.
His contribution means he has either scored or assisted a goal in 14 consecutive league appearances, just one behind Vardy’s record of 15 games.
Salah scored his 14th Premier League goal of the season as Liverpool defeated Aston Villa to a 1-0 win at Anfield.
Meanwhile, Salah will now hope to continue his impressive display for Liverpool when they take on Newcastle United for their next league match on Thursday.
