Salah assisted Curtis Jones who stepped out of the bench to score Liverpool’s second goal in front of The Kop at Anfield.

Although the mere assistance may not provide too many headlines, the milestone Salah has now reached should receive more media attention.

After help, Salah has now made 100 Premier League goal contributions during her time with the Reds and Chelsea, according to statistics provided by Opta.

The 28-year-old has scored 73 goals in 116 appearances, while collecting 27 assists for his teammates.

Salah’s record is so impressive that a single player did the same in fewer appearances, with Alan Shearer completing the success in 100 appearances.

Reds forward is alongside former Manchester United striker Eric Cantona, who has also reached 100 goals in as many games as Salah.
