That barely does his 30th league goal of the season justice, for Salah still had to apply the right amount of power and precision to get the ball above and beyond a 6ft 5in goalkeeper. The Egyptian added to his tally on Saturday with a delightful header over Bournemouth keeper Asmir Begovic.
So, yesterday the 'Premier League Goal Accreditation Appeals Panel' decided to award Harry Kane with Tottenham's second goal against Stoke City.
"Mo Salah has been brilliant", said the Liverpool skipper.
They copied Salah's 'Wooooooow really?' caption and they superimposed Harry Kane celebrating an iconic goal by Roma legend Francesco Totti.
Yet recognition from his peers and the chance to finish the campaign as the league's leading scorer is all secondary for Salah when compared to the collective goal.
"He was disappointed because he never wanted to create this". No class, " a Twitter user wrote. Their second-half performance lacked intensity at times, but Salah's goal sealed the result before Roberto Firmino made it three late on.
Since then, Kane has found himself the punchline to a few jokes. But you can see with the team everyone tries to pass the ball to me to help me. Failed for Spurs in big moments, failed for England.
Salah has been directly involved in 50 goals in all competitions this season - scoring 39, with 11 assists - in just 44 appearances.
"Yeah, he told me he's going to claim all of them", Henderson told BT Sport.
Amidst the trolling on social media, Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino has revealed that Kane has been hurt and surprised by the ridicule he has received for claiming the goal.
