Unstoppable Mo Salah’s Eight-Record-Breaking Streak Shutters the English Premier League

Mohamed Salah dropped another record-breaking performance with another-man-of-the-match performance against the Hornets at Anifield. The 25-year-old who is showing no signs of slowing down any time soon, scored four goals and created one in Liverpool’s 5-0 win over Watford.

Nicknamed ‘The Egyptian Messi’, Salah opened the scoring just in the fourth minute of the game. After exchanging passes with Saido Mane, he made a jinking run firing an angled shot past Watford’s stopper Oretis Karnezis.
The goal was so good, it required a second look; and yes, even Liverpool substitutes left their seats to view it on the pitch side monitor.

The Egyptian then doubled his tally with two minutes left to play finishing a precisely well taken Andy Robertson cross. He then created one for Roberto Firmino before scoring his third and later fourth late on in the game to seal a well deserved 5-0 win for Liverpool over the Hornets.

He took his tally for the club to 36 in all competitions and leads the Premier League’s scoring charts with 28 goals, four ahead of injured Harry Kane. To put his performance into perspective, here are a number of records Mo Salah broke last night.

◆ He is the first Egyptian player to score a hat-trick in the Premier League.

◆ He became the first Liverpool player to score four goals in a single Premier League game since Louis Suarez in 2013. The Barcelona forward scored them against Norwich in December 2013.

◆ He became the second player in the League’s history to score four goals with his first four shots in the game. The only other time this has happened in the Premier League was when Arsenal’s Andrey Arshavin set the record against Liverpool in 2009.

◆ He has so far scored 28 goals in the English Premier League this season. A single goal from equaling Didier Drogba’s 29 which is the highest number of goals scored by an African player in a season.

◆ He has already surpassed Fernando Torres’ 33 as Liverpool’s highest scorer in a debut season.

◆ He became the first player to score a Premier League hat-trick under Jurgen Klopp.

◆ He was involved in all the five goals scored by the Reds yesterday.

◆ And finally, the four strikes against Watford saw him become the second Liverpool player to surpass the 25-goal mark in the last 22 seasons. Only Louis Suarez passed the mark in 2013-2014 when he almost won Liverpool the title.
