• Liverpool defeated Napoli 2-0 at Anfield on Tuesday
  • Salah scored Liverpool's first goal
  • The Egyptian King is now the leading scorer in this season's UCL

Mohamed Salah on Tuesday equaled Steven Gerrard's record for European goals in Liverpool's 2-0 win over Napoli.

Salah netted Liverpool's first goal in their final Group A match of the 2022-23 Champions League. With that, Salah took his European goals tally for the Reds to 41, on the level with Reds legend Gerrard.

The Egyptian King is also the leading goal scorer in the Champions League this season with seven goals from six matches, while he has also provided an assist.

"Anyone can score, the most important thing is the team. As a striker I like to score, Darwin also likes to score, so we're glad that we could both score goals today," Salah said after Liverpool's victory at Anfield.

Liverpool finished second in Group A in the 2022-23 Champions League.

Meanwhile, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp also recorded a special landmark when Liverpool hosted Napoli on Tuesday. It marked Klopp's 400th game as Liverpool's manager, and the victory was the German boss' win No. 249 as the Reds boss.

It is a tenure that has produced many memories and six trophies, including the club's maiden Premier League title. Tom Watson, Bill Shankly, and Bob Paisley are the only other managers in Liverpool's history to reach the 400-mark.

"How you can imagine, I'm much more interested in the next 200, 300, I'm not sure, 400 and then we can talk," Klopp said after the game.

Liverpool and Napoli finished Group A with 15 points each from six games. The Serie A club is at the top of the table because of a better goal difference. The Reds started off the 2022-23 Champions League on a poor note, losing 4-1 to Napoli at Stadio Diego Armando Maradona.

In a post-match conference Tuesday, Klopp was asked if he had any regrets at the end of the group stage. The Liverpool boss replied," I don't regret anything about tonight that we did not win the group or go for a third and fourth goal or whatever. We had the worst possible start to this group with the performance against Napoli, we helped them a bit with our performance and gave them all the confidence they needed. Napoli deserve first place in the group but there are no regrets."

Liverpool's focus once again is set to turn to Premier League, where they are still struggling to produce the desired results. The Reds have managed only four wins in 12 games and are placed ninth in the 2022-23 Premier League table.
