Mohamed Salah and his Liverpool trident saved his defense blushes after Red Bull Salzburg erased a three-goal deficit at Anfield.

Salah scored early and added the winner after Salzburg turned the 3-0 into a 3-3, joining Sadio Mane’s opening goal and two Roberto Firmino assists on the score sheet.

The Egyptian superstar complimented Salzburg for their effort in the comeback, but admitted that the Reds suffered a little. From the BBC:

“When we were winning by three, we need to score fourth, and fifth, and No. 6. It’s a little bit tough because the human mind is a little bit okay, ‘We’re gonna win now’ but they made the game tough for us but I’m happy to score the fourth goal.”

Andy Robertson scored Liverpool’s other goal, his second in 89 appearances, and Salah was pleased.

“He finally scored,” Salah said. “He doesn’t score a lot but he works so hard for the team and we’re all really happy for him.”
