The Egyptian has netted in five of Liverpool’s six games in the Premier League so far, with his effort against Brentford – awarded after a VAR check – extended his scoring run to four consecutive league games.
It was a landmark one for Salah, not only as his 100th goal in the top flight for Liverpool, but also as it saw him move ahead of Sam Raybould as the club’s 10th-highest goalscorer of all time.

One hundred of his 131 goals for the Reds have come in the Premier League, hitting his century in 151 appearances – the fourth-quickest to do so in the league’s history.
Only Alan Shearer (124), Harry Kane (138) and Sergio Aguero (147) have scored their first 100 league goals for a single club faster than Salah.
