Mohamed Salah

Liverpool forward can score in the opening match for the fourth successive season as reigning champions host Leeds

Mohamed Salah helped Liverpool make history last season with their first Premier League title, and he can now write his own name into the record books on the opening weekend of the 2020/21 campaign.

The Egyptian can become the first Reds player to score in four successive Matchweek 1 fixtures, and only the second Premier League player overall, matching Teddy Sheringham's feat between 1992/93 and 1995/96.
