The 29-year-old tapped home from a James Milner cross in Portugal as Liverpool eased into a comfortable 2-0 lead, joining an elite club in the process.

Only Steven Gerrard and Mohamed Salah have scored more Champions League goals for the Anfield club and with the Egyptian also scoring in Porto, he has moved closer to breaking the club record.

Gerrard currently holds that record, with the former captain scoring 30 Champions League goals for the Reds, but now Salah is in touching distance of that impressive tally.

When Salah opened the scoring on Tuesday night it was his 28th Champions League goal for the club and he followed that up in the second half with his 29th.
