MO SALAH got back on the scoresheet – and got Liverpool back to winning ways.

The Egyptian wizard went a month without finding the net before his winner at the John Smith’s Stadium.

And it meant Jurgen Klopp’s side were back on track after four matches without a victory.

Salah struck in the 24th minute after a move that was started by Joe Gomez in defence.

Gareth Southgate was in the crowd and would have been impressed with Gomez setting up the attack by fizzing a pass to Xherdan Shaqiri.

Shaqiri found Salah and he breezed past Christopher Schindler before finishing off the post.

Huddersfield rallied and hit the post through Jonathan Hogg’s long-ranger.

And Alex Pritchard had the ball in the net but had just strayed beyond Virgil van Dijk into an offside position.

Laurent Depoitre forced Alisson into a second-half save with a header and they cannot be criticised for a lack of effort.

But it meant Liverpool were a threat on the break and Salah raced through again but went wide with his finish.
