Mohamed Salah reached a 100 Premier League goal involvement for Liverpool against Brighton & Hove Albion to become the Red’s quickest player to that mark, reaching the milestone on the occasion of his 104th appearance.
The Egyptian contributed two goals and one assist as Jurgen Klopp’s men silenced Brighton and Hove Albion 3-1 at the Falmer Stadium.
In the keenly contested encounter, Salah handed the newly crowned English champions a sixth-minute lead curling in a first-time strike with his left foot after Naby Keita set him up after robbing possession from Davy Propper.
He completed his brace in the 76th minute when his speed to the near post allowed him to meet Andy Robertson’s set-piece delivery, flicking the ball in. That effort was his 19th league goal so far as the Anfield giants moved 23 points clear of second-placed Manchester City.
That contribution ensured he has now been involved in 73 goals and 27 assists after 104 appearances in the English elite division, to accompany his accuracy in front of goal since he joined from AS Roma.
Aside from Salah, only three Liverpool players namely Steven Gerrard (212), Robbie Fowler (158) and Michael Owen (148) have achieved that feat
Salah joined Liverpool for £36.7 million in the summer of 2017 on the back of two impressive seasons in Serie A, having been let go by Chelsea.
