Mohamed Salah's sensational counter-attacking goal at West Ham United has been voted January 2021's Budweiser Goal of the Month. 

The Liverpool star finished off a sweeping move that started in their own box to set the champions on their way to a 3-1 win.

"It was a team goal and it's a great feeling to score goals like that," says Salah, who wins the Budweiser award for the first time.

"The most important thing is that we won the game. That's what makes it so special."

The Egyptian now wants to bring more trophies to Anfield after becoming the first Liverpool player to win the award since Daniel Sturridge in August 2018.

"I don't go into the season saying, 'OK, let's be top scorer, I don't care about the team,' " Salah says.

"I'm trying to win the Premier League, the Champions League. The team trophies come before the individual ones."

Salah's effort was chosen by a panel of experts combined with a public vote, beating seven other contenders.
