Salah matches Crouch’s record, Harvey makes history in LIverpool win over Inter Milan

Liverpool talisman Mohamed Salah reached yet another milestone as he lead the Reds to a deserved 2-0 win over Inter Milan in the Champions League knockout first leg clash on Wednesday night. 

The Egyptian struck Liverpool’s second goal seven minutes from time, adding to Roberto Firmino’s opener eight minutes earlier. 

His goal means that Salah is now only the second player after Crouch to score against both AC Milan and Inter in the same European campaign.

Crouch became the first player to claim the unique record while playing for Tottenham in the 2010/2011 season as the London club reached the quarter-finals of the competition.

Harvey Elliott, who was starting his first Champions League match also wrote his name in the club’s history books.

Aged just 18 years and 318 days, Elliott enters the record books as the youngest player ever to start a match in the European Cup/Champions League (excluding qualifiers) for Liverpool, beating the previous best of 18y 354d set by his teammate Trent Alexander-Arnold.

Coach Jurgen Klopp was impressed with the youngster, who was starting his first match after 157 days due to an injury. 

 “It was absolutely OK, but Harvey can play much better, we know that…. he did the job, he was working incredibly hard and all these kind of things.

Liverpool are now in the driving seat of the clash and will feel confident when they play the return leg in a fortnight.
