Egyptian attacker's strike for Liverpool at Leeds on Sunday meant he reached his century in just 162 matches

With his strike in Liverpool's 3-0 win at Leeds United on Sunday, Mohamed Salah has become the 30th player to score 100 Premier League goals.

The Egyptian is the fifth-quickest to reach the landmark in the competition’s history, doing so in 162 matches.

Only Alan Shearer (124), Harry Kane (141), Sergio Aguero (147) and Thierry Henry (160) have achieved a century of Premier League goals in fewer matches.

Sergio Aguero 19/4/2016 147
Thierry Henry 10/2/2004 160
Mohamed Salah 12/9/2021 162

Of his 100 goals, two were scored for Chelsea, while the next 98 have come at Liverpool, who he joined in the summer of 2017.

The Egyptian is also the second African to score 100 Premier League goals after former Chelsea team-mate Didier Drogba.

Drogba remains the top-scoring African with 104 goals and Salah needs just five more to surpass that record.

Fellow Liverpool attacker Sadio Mane is not far behind, having netted his 97th Premier League goal on his 233rd appearance on Sunday.

The Senegalese is now the joint-third African goalscorer in the competition. He is level with Togo's Emmanuel Adebayor.
