Mohamed Salah at the double as Liverpool brush aside Brentford

Mohamed Salah's double took him to 200 goals in English football and helped Liverpool to a 3-0 win over Brentford, which moves them level on points with Manchester City and Arsenal at the top of the Premier League.

The Liverpool forward slotted home in the first half to make it 15 straight Anfield Premier League appearances where he has either scored or set a goal up, matching record streaks by legends Alan Shearer and Thierry Henry.

Salah then nodded in for the landmark after the break, when Kostas Tsimikas just kept the ball in play. Diogo Jota thumped in the Reds' third from the edge of the box to cap a morale-boosting win.

It was an authoritative performance from Liverpool, who also saw two Darwin Nunez efforts in the first half ruled out for offside, as they put their frustrating recent results against Luton and Toulouse behind them.

This was their sixth-straight Premier League win at home this season, with the Anfield factor giving them the platform to battle with the likes of City and Arsenal at the top end of the table and dream of another title tussle.
