Liverpool up to second after beating Brentford

Mohamed Salah of Liverpool shakes hands with Saman Ghoddos of Brentford following the Premier League match between Liverpool FC and Brentford FC at Anfield on November 12, 2023 in Liverpool, England.

Mohamed Salah scored twice as Liverpool maintained their 100% record at Anfield this season with victory against Brentford to move up to second in the Premier League.

Salah opened the scoring just before the break, latching onto a pass from Darwin Nunez before placing a finish beyond Mark Flekken.

That was Salah's ninth Premier League goal of the season and his 10th arrived midway through the second half when he nodded in from Kostas Tsimikas' cross.

Salah - once again excellent on home soil - really should have had a hat-trick, having also volleyed over from a superb Trent Alexander-Arnold cross just before half-time.

Diogo Jota then rounded off another dominant home display with a thumping strike.

Brentford's best chance had come in the first half, when Bryan Mbeumo raced through on goal but his chipped effort was tame and cleared off the line by Alexander-Arnold.

The victory means Liverpool have 27 points and move ahead of Arsenal on goal difference, while Brentford are 10th.
