Mohamed Salah sets yet another PL record with goal against West Ham

Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah etched his name further into Premier League history as he broke yet another record in the Reds' 3-1 win over West Ham United at Anfield today.

Salah, who tied with Thierry Henry for the most goals scored for an English club in Europe (42) with his finish against LASK on Thursday, scored yet again on Sunday, netting a crucial penalty to open the scoring.

This extended his incredible streak of goal involvements in consecutive Premier League games to 12.

Not once, but twice

However, what makes this achievement even more incredible is that Salah has accomplished this feat not once, but twice in his career, making him the first player in Premier League history to do so.

His previous run of 12 consecutive games with goal involvements was achieved in 2021, placing him alongside Stan Collymore (1995) and Jamie Vardy (2015) in the history books.

Strong start to the season

Another new record for the Egyptian King comes as he's made an incredibly strong start to the season. In the six games so far, Salah has picked up three goals and four assists.

He has also become the fifth player to score or assist in his team’s first six Premier League games of the season, following in the footsteps of David Beckham, Thierry Henry, Sergio Agüero and Erling Haaland.
