Here is your Liverpool evening digest for September 16.

Salah closes in on Liverpool icons

Although he missed a penalty in the first half, Wednesday night was still memorable for the right reasons for Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah.

The Egyptian netted in the second half to level the clash with AC Milan at 2-2 in the Champions League, before Jordan Henderson rattled in a late winner for the Reds shortly after.

The goal continued Salah's stellar start to the campaign and Andrew Beasley has put Salah's extraordinary Anfield goalscoring numbers into some context when compared to other Kop heroes.

"The Egyptian’s record at the famous old ground is simply phenomenal. With 72 goals scored there, he currently stands in 14th on the all-time list, one strike ahead of Kevin Keegan," he said. "Yet the legendary striker of the 1970s made 157 appearances at Anfield, and it’s a similar story when looking at the other players close to Salah in the list."

Milan players praise Anfield atmosphere after loss

During the thrilling 3-2 win against Milan, Anfield was abuzz with atmosphere, with supporters clearly relishing their return to European occasions.

For long spells - aside from their quickfire double before half time - the Milan players looked a little overawed by the occasion, with this their first Champions League fixture for seven years.

Afterwards, a number of players commented on the backdrop provided by the supporters on Merseyside.

"In an atmosphere like this, the first time Milan were in the Champions League for seven years and the first time many of us were in the Champions League, against one of the best teams in the world, I’d say we did really well to turn it around and score two goals here," said Milan defender Davide Calabria.

While it's long been the preference of Liverpool teams to attack the Anfield Road end in the first period, opponents will often turn the Reds around in the hope of gaining a minor advantage on the night.

Ian Doyle has taken a look at why teams do as much and why the tactic has not been as successful as you might think.
