Salah scores 100th Premier League goal for Liverpool

Mohamed Salah became the fastest Liverpool player ever to reach 100 league goals on Saturday.

He temporarily put his side ahead against Brentford in an eventual 3-3 draw.

The Egypt international has become a firm favourite at Anfield since arriving at the club from Roma in 2017.

He came through once more to help his side out of a tight situation, with a spot at the top of the Premier League on the line.

However, newly promoted Brentford spoiled the landmark finish with an 82-minute goal from Yoane Wissa to level the score.

His goal finally arrived in the 54th minute.

It was after Diogo Jota had earlier cancelled out an early strike from the hosts by way of Ethan Pinnock. 

It brought him up to five for the season in the league so far, and also secured him a piece of Liverpool history. 

His century arrived in just 151 games, quicker than any other Reds player. 

Club legend Roger Hunt was the previous record-holder, having made 100 in 152 appearances.

Meanwhile fellow sharp-shooter Ian Rush needed 168 outings to reach the mark. 

Salah is also only one of four Liverpool players to have netted 100 times in the Premier League, alongside Michael Owen, Robbie Fowler and Steven Gerrard, and also entered the club’s list of top 10 all-time scorers with this latest strike.
