Mohamed Salah breaks another Premier League record after Liverpool vs Man Utd match

After a fantastic hat-trick against Manchester United, Liverpool's Mohamed Salah has become the highest-scoring African player in Premier League history.

The Egyptian was in sensational form once again as the Reds ran riot at Old Trafford, netting for the 10th league game in a row and his 15th goal in only 12 outings this season.


The 29-year-old was involved in the build-up to Diogo Jota's second goal, as well as setting up Naby Keita for the opener.After a fantastic hat-trick against Manchester United, Liverpool's Mohamed Salah has become the highest-scoring African player in Premier League history.


He then added to his tally with two goals just before halftime to put Liverpool in dreamland with a 4-0 lead.


And he capped off his hat-trick just five minutes after the break, latching onto a wonderful cross from Jordan Henderson and shooting past David de Gea.


Salah now has 107 goals in the Premier League, surpassing retiring Chelsea icon Didier Drogba's 104.


What's more astounding is that Drogba scored 292 goals in eight seasons in the Premier League, despite only playing in 292 games.


Salah, on the other hand, has only appeared in 166 games, 153 for Liverpool and 13 for Chelsea, with only two goals.


Sadio Mane, his Liverpool teammate, is seven goals behind him on 100 goals, so there's still a chance he'll join him at the top.


Salah's amazing form, in which he has scored in every game this season until the 2-0 win over Burnley, would almost certainly keep him ahead of Mane for the time being.


Salah has already set a number of milestones this season, including becoming the fastest player to achieve 100 Premier League goals for Liverpool.
