The 26-year-old Egyptian striker scored an important second-half goal for the Reds against Southampton with 10 minutes left to play on Friday night.

The goal which came in his 69th appearance for Merseyside club, confirmed he reached a half-century three games quicker than previous record holder Fernando Torres.
