Mohamed Salah’s goal on Sunday was his 100th league goal for the club, making him the fifth-fastest player to reach the number in the Premier League era.

Salah notched his 100th goal in his 162nd league appearance for the club; only Alan Shearer (124), Harry Kane (141), Sergio Agüero (147), and Thierry Henry (160) reached 100 league goals faster than the Egyptian — Salah joins an illustrious list.

Salah’s achievement is actually more impressive than it looks: 98 of his 100 goals came in just 149 games for the club per Liverpoolfc.com.

To mark the accomplishment, Salah was presented with a Liverpool jersey with “100” on the back, and the team took photos to mark the very special moment.

Mo Salah has scored 128 goals in 207 appearances, netting 1.62 goals per game — putting him at 11th overall for goals scored. Liverpool are spoiled with striking talent at the moment, of course: Sadio Mané, who also scored against Leeds United, is on 99 goals for Liverpool in all competitions, and the Senegalese sits at 18th on all-time club goal-scorers.

One of the things that marks Liverpool’s current quality is the seemingly constant marking of player achievements and accolades. Long may it continue.
