Salah sets new record as Reds let lead slip against Brentford


Mohamed Salah scored his 100th Premier League goal for Liverpool in the 3-3 draw with Brentford on Saturday

Salah scored his 100th Premier League goal for the club when netting the Reds’ second in their lively 3-3 draw at Brentford.

The Egyptian became the quickest to a century in the top flight for Liverpool by reaching the landmark in 151 games – one fewer than Roger Hunt managed.

Salah also moved above Sam Raybould into the top 10 of the club’s all-time leading scorers with a 131st strike in all competitions.

Speaking after the match, Jurgen Klopp saluted the “insane” Mohamed Salah numbers and was effusive in his praise of the forward – while joking they may have to make him a new shirt in celebration of the achievement.

"Two weeks ago he scored 100 in the league, now 100 (in the league) for Liverpool,” said the Reds boss.

"We gave him already the shirt with 100 on the back, so maybe we now have to give him another one!

"But exceptional. We all know in the future when people look back, people will speak about some players in this team 100% and 100% about Mo Salah because his numbers here are insane and incredible.

"But I know Mo. And he is now sitting in the dressing room and thinking about the two chances that he missed or didn’t take.

"Maybe next time he will the quickest player to score 150 goals. It is an absolutely outstanding achievement, no doubt."
