His nickname is « Egyptian King », but now Mohammed Salah is not only the king of (Site notre bureau spécialisé) in Egypt, he is also the king of Anfield. The Liverpool striker scored the Reds’ first goal in the derby against Everton. It was his 100th goal in a Premier League game at Anfield.
Salah himself has scored 71 goals and provided 29 assists. He is only the 13th player to score 100 goals at one stadium.
Even more exciting: Salah only needed 104 games for this mark. This means the Egyptian has been involved in a goal for his side in almost every Premier League game he has attended at Anfield. Madness!
With Alan Shearer and Thierry Henry, there have only been two stars in league history who have scored 100 goals faster. It took Henry 92 games at Arsenal’s former Highbury Stadium to surpass the triple-digit number, while Shearer managed just 74 games at Ewood Park, home of Blackburn Rovers.
So now Salah jumps to third place on this shortlist. Although things are not going as well for him this season as in previous years, the goal against Everton will not rob him of the ‘King of Anfield’ title.
