Mohamed Salah reaches another Liverpool milestone
Salah joined Steven Gerrard, Robbie Fowler and Michael Owen in being involved in 100 Premier League goals after scoring twice against Brighton last night.
Mohamed Salah joined three LFC legends to each another career milestone after playing a starring role in Wednesday's 1-3 win at Brighton and Hove Albion. The Egypt international was on target twice and set up another as the Premier League champions recorded their first away triumph since 15 February, moving on to 92 points with four games remaining.

Salah, two goals, one assist
Salah steered the visitors in front in the sixth minute and then assisted Jordan Henderson's goal just 127 seconds later, laying the ball off for the Liverpool captain to curl a wonderful shot beyond Mat Ryan. Leandro Trossard halved the deficit before the break, but Salah made sure of victory when he headed in Andy Robertson's corner, taking his tally in the league this season to 19 goals.
He has also now been directly involved in 100 Premier League goals for Liverpool, personally scoring 73 goals and dishing out 27 assists to achieve the feat in only 104 appearances. Only three players have reached the milestone previously for the Reds. Michael Owen and Robbie Fowler achieved the century in 148 and 158 games respectively, while Steven Gerrard reached his century in his 212th game.
Liverpool chalk 30 wins in 34 games
Jürgen Klopp's side also created history at Brighton by winning for the 30th time in their 34th Premier League fixture this season. No other side has reached that tally as quickly in the history of the English Football League.
