Liverpool dropped points for the second time this season as they held on to a 3-3 draw against Brentford on Saturday.

The Reds went behind on 27 minutes as Ethan Pinnock slotted home before Diogo Jota headed them back on level terms a few minutes later.

It was Liverpool that took the lead early in the second-half, but Mohamed Salah’s effort was initially ruled out for offiisde.

Fabinho picked out the Egyptian’s run and his first-time effort deflected off goalkeeper David Raya and into the bottom corner.

A brief VAR check later, the goal was given as Salah became the fastest player to reach 100 top-flight goals for Liverpool, in 151 games.

For all of the criticism of VAR technology, pundit Jamie Redknapp believes it was spot on this time around.

“This is what we need VAR for,” he told Sky Sports. “I must congratulate Fabinho on the pass because most midfielder players you look at your right-back, Trent Alexander-Arnold and a basic pass out to the right-back.

“Instead he plays a lovely floated ball in behind Ricoh, there’s not a lot he can do, but the ball is so good, it’s a lovely finish by a man who’s on fire in Mo Salah.”

Salah’s goal takes him joint top of the Premier League goalscoring charts, level on five with West Ham’s Michail Antonio and Leicester City’s Jamie Vardy.

Vitaly Janelt made it 2-2 just over 10 minutes later before Curtis Jones sent a powerful shot beyond Raya to give Liverpool the lead once again.

Salah could’ve scored his 101st league goal for the club at 3-2 as he timed a run perfectly and was one on one with Raya, but his attempted chip landed on the roof of the net.

Shortly after Brentford found a second equaliser through Yoane Wissa and the points were shared.
