Liverpool attacker Mohamed Salah has been the talisman for the Mersey side giants since his transfer from Italian capital club AS Roma three years ago and his impressive record at home is key to his status as an important player for the Premier League champions.
Salah opened the scoring for the Reds in the first half after he capitalized on the error from Wolves captain ConorCoady. The goal came on 24 minutes and it took his tally at home to 52 goals since he became a Liverpool playerthree years ago. Only the duo of Barcelona skipper Lionel Messi (63) and Bayern Munich hitman Robert Lewandowski (59) have more home goals than Mohamed Salah since he signed for Liverpool in 2017. The first half striker against Wolves also took his Premier League tally to nine goals this season.
The goal for Salah proved to be the foundation for Liverpool to score three second half goals. Jordan Henderson was involved in the build-up to the first half goal from the little Egyptian magician and he also created the second goal scored by Dutch international Georginio Wijnaldum in the second half.
Salah provided the assist for Joel Matip at the midpoint of the second half for the Reds' third goal before a Nelson Semedo own goal 12 minutes from time wrapped up the win for Liverpool. The own goal came from a cross from the returning Trent Alexander-Arnold.
Liverpool moved level with Tottenham Hotspur at the top of the Premier League table with the big win over their opponents.
