The Egyptian continued his fine scoring streak, against the Canaries and has now scored against 21 different sides he’s faced in the Premier League
Mohamed Salah has shattered a number of records in the Premier League and after scoring against Norwich City on Friday, he added a new honour to the list.

Salah proved his importance to the Reds once again as he scored and assisted to fire Jurgen Klopp’s men to a 4-1 win at Anfield.

The Egyptian fired past Tim Krul in the 19th minute after receiving a pass from Roberto Firmino to double his side’s lead after Grant Hanley’s own goal.

The 27-year-old’s goal meant he has scored against 21 of the 23 different teams he has faced since joining Liverpool from AS Roma. He has only failed to score against Swansea and Manchester United.

His assist for Virgil van Dijk’s first goal of the season was also noteworthy as it made him the player with the most assists in the top five European leagues since the start of the 2017-18 season.

With the Reds’ victory, they take an early lead in the English top-flight log and they face Aston Villa in their next outing.
