The Egyptian becomes the 30th player to reach the milestone after his strike on Sunday at Elland Road
Mohamed Salah became the latest player to sign for the Premier League’s 100-goal club after scoring a first-half against Leeds at Elland Road.
The Egyptian, an ongoing history maker during his time with the Reds, achieved another important feat after beating Jurgen Klopp’s visitors early on Sunday.
It is the latest milestone the 29-year-old has beaten, joining the scarce company of further Premier League legends to get triple figures in the English top flight.
How did Salah reach the beacon?
Salah moved to 99 goals in the Premier League before the international break and scored a penalty in the Reds’ shameless draw against his former club Chelsea.
And it took him little time to rekindle a century of Premier League finishes for the Reds and find the back of the net in the 20th minute.
From a corner kick, he was close to inside the penalty area to meet Trent Alexander-Arnold’s low cross from the right flank, with a flash to push it past Illan Meslier.
Salah joins a rich group of superstars
By getting an early blow against Marcelo Bielsa’s Whites, the striker also elevated himself to a group of good players and became the fifth fastest to achieve such a score in the history of the Premier League.
Only former Blackburn and Newcastle legend Alan Shearer, Tottenham’s Harry Kane, former Manchester City forward Sergio Aguero and Arsenal hero Thierry Henry managed the feat in fewer games.
Salah becomes the 30th player to hit the magic number, and also joins the exact number with Southampton’s Matt Le Tissier – although he still has to double his step to get close to Wayne Rooney, while others who have reached the point, Chelsea include Romelu Lukaku and Jamie Vardy of Leicester. .
