Egypt international Mohamed Salah pipped Xherdan Shaqiri and Sadio Mane to Liverpool’s Goal of the Month award for September.
The former Chelsea and AS Roma star scored a hat-trick in the Reds’ 4-3 triumph over newly-promoted English top-flight side Leeds United, and his second strike against Marcelo Bielsa’s team claimed the club’s monthly accolade.
With Andy Robertson's free-kick into the heart of the penalty area only half-cleared, the two-time African Player of the Year had space and time to pick his spot and blaze a shot high into the right corner of goalkeeper Illan Meslier.
That stunner garnered the most votes from a shortlist of 10 across all levels.
When the 28-year-old finds the target, Jurgen Klopp’s team tend to win, and that proved to be the case against Leeds, with the Reds emerging victorious in a 35th successive contest in which Salah had hit the net.
That run has set a new Premier League record, with Manchester United’s all-time record scorer Rooney having to relinquish top spot.
Shaqiri’s splendid free-kick at Lincoln City in the Carabao Cup took second place.
Mane’s header in the 2-0 defeat of Chelsea at Stamford Bridge settled for the third position.
Two other goals from the tie against Lincoln made the top five.
Takumi Minamino’s curler from 20 yards – was voted fourth, while Curtis Jones’ second solo strike at the LNER Stadium finished fifth.
After their 7-2 decimation against Aston Villa, Klopp’s team will hope to get back on track after the international break with a Merseyside derby against Everton.
