Salah reaches 100 goals for Liverpool
Mohamed Salah chalked up a century of Liverpool goals by scoring in the Merseyside derby – becoming the fastest to reach three figures for the Reds in over 50 years.
The Egyptian attacker has been a revelation in Jurgen Klopp’s team and scored his 100th goal for the club in what was his 159th appearance.
It made him the 17th player in Liverpool’s history to get to three figures, and the first to reach the landmark since Steven Gerrard achieved the feat in 2008 on his way to 186 career goals with the Merseyside giants.
Only two players have reached a century of goals for Liverpool in fewer appearances, with Roger Hunt hitting that mark in 144 games on his way to scoring 285 times for the club from 1958 to 1969.
