The Egyptian is the eighth player overall to reach a double-century for combined goals and assists with a single team, but only one has done so in fewer appearances.

That is Thierry Henry, who achieved the feat in 206 matches for Arsenal, compared to Salah's 223 appearances for Liverpool.

Ryan Giggs 109 162 271 414
Steven Gerrard 120 92 212 474

Salah started Saturday with 199 goal involvements for Liverpool, and set up goals for Cody Gakpo and Andrew Robertson to take his tally to 201.

He has now recorded a goal or an assist in each of his last 11 Premier League matches, scoring five goals and setting up nine.

Salah is only the fourth player to register an assist in five consecutive away league appearances, after Muzzy Izzet in December 2003, Cesc Fabregas in January 2015 and Gerard Deulofeu in December 2015.

Overall, including his solitary assist for Chelsea in 2023/14, Salah has set up 63 Premier League goals, more than any other African player, breaking the previous record of 61 held by former Leicester City and Manchester City midfielder Riyad Mahrez.
