Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah scored the first of three (0-3) that Jürgen Klopp’s team infringed on Leeds United on matchday four of the Premier League. In this way he reached 100 points, 5th fastest player to hit the record with a total of 162 appearances, just behind Thierry Henry (160).
The Egyptian, who last season was far from his best level, has three goals and two assists at the start of the season and keeps Liverpool at the top of the table, with the same points as Manchester United and Chelsea (10). The win against Marcelo Bielsa’s team reinforces the candidacy of the reds to the title, to which Manchester City also aspires.

The former AS Roma has reached the centennial scorer in the history of the competition, as 29 other players have done before. With 162 games he has become the fifth fastest player to do so: only Alan Shearer (124), Harry Kane (141), Kun Agüero (147) and Thierry Henry (160) achieved it in less time.
Offensive speech by Jürgen Klopp
Mohamed Salah arrived in Liverpool from the Roman capital in the summer of 2017 as a skilled and electric winger. Jürgen Klopp, leader of the sports project, has given him a context to shine and the attacker has catapulted himself as one of the biggest killers in the area and one of the most complete offensive figures in British and European football..
Ballon d’Or candidate and Golden Boot winner (2018), the Egyptian is making history with Liverpool: is only two goals (128) away from entering the top 10 of all-time top scorers. He will reach the 130 of Jack Parkinson and will write his name in the annals of the club in gold letters.
