The 26-year-old striker scored an important second-half goal for the Reds against Southampton with 10 minutes left to play on Friday night.
The goal which came in his 69th appearance for Merseyside club, confirmed he reached a half-century three games quicker than previous record holder Fernando Torres.
‘Not at all [I didn’t think about passing], as a striker I need to score, I am thinking to score. Maybe if someone is in a better position I can think but I just took my decision to shoot and I scored so I’m very happy about it.’
The goal was also his first goal after nine games for Liverpool without a single goal.
