In a 7 goals thriller game played at Anfield which saw Crystal Palace take a half time lead through a 34th minute Townsend goal, the 2018 African Player of the year scored 2 second half goals which ensured he reach 50 goals for the Reds in 75 appearances for the club and helping his club to extend a 7 points gap at the top as his club has 60 points.
The Egyptian scored on the 46th minute, a minute into the second half with a fine finish before completing his brace in the 75th minute of the game, cementing his chase for the golden boot in the EPL as he has 16 goals, 2 more than those scored by Arsenal’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Harry Kane of Tottenhum Hotspurs who both have 14 goals.
On the day, Roberto Firmino also registered a goal for Liverpool in the 53rd minute before the Senegaries Sadio Mane iced the cake with his goal in the 90th minute while Tomkins and Meyers goals were not enough to deny the Reds all the 3 points at Anfield.
