Mohamed Salah will become third fastest Liverpool player to score 100 goals if he nets vs Everton

Salah has scored 99 goals in 158 appearances and played a huge role in helping them win last season’s Premier League and the Champions League in 2018/19.

He will become the third fastest player to score 100 goals for Liverpool if he nets against Everton on Saturday.

Roger Hunt, who played for Liverpool between 1958 and 1969, is the quickest player to reach 100 goals as he achieved the feat in just 144 matches.

Meanwhile, Jack Parkinson follows him in second place with 100 strikes in 153 appearances, which came in the early 1900s.

Salah’s century of goals would see him become the 17th different Liverpool player to reach that landmark.

He started the 2020/21 season in prolific form by netting a hat-trick in a 4-3 opening day win over Leeds.

After going three games without a goal, he got back on the score sheet with a brace in a shock 7-2 defeat by Aston Villa just before the international break.

Speaking ahead of the Merseyside derby, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp dubbed Salah ‘outstanding’.

The German coach said: “He scored twice against Villa but he would like to score in other games when we win.


“Overall, he’s been really good so far. Complete. Involved, a proper option and still sharp finishing.

“All these players are a mix of natural ability and work. Without practice, you have no chance.

“How I said, the skillset of Mo is outstanding but without his attitude, he would not be the player he is. So it’s a mix.”
