    Salah joins the Premier League 100 club, closing in on Didier Drogba’s record

    Salah joins the Premier League 100 club, closing in on Didier Drogba's record
    Salah

    Salah has joined Drogba as the only two Africans to net 100 goals in the Premier League, as he closes in on the Chelsea legend’s tally of 104.

    The superstar brought up his century in the fixture at Elland Road between Liverpool and Leeds United on Sunday afternoon, scoring in the 20-minute mark after directing a pinpoint cross from Trent Alexander-Arnold past the keeper.

     

    By hitting triple digits Salah has become the fifth-fastest player to achieve that feat (162 games), and the quickest in Liverpool’s history, as he leapfrogs Robbie Fowler (175 games). Alan Shearer (124 games), Harry Kane (141 games), Sergio Aguero (147 games) and Thierry Henry (160 games) were those to reach 100 goals quicker.

    The 29-year-old brought up his 99th goal in the English top flight just before the international break against Chelsea, whom he scored his first for in a 6-0 London derby win over Arsenal in March 2014, but he has firmly gone on to establish his elite status on Merseyside.

     

    And it is another former Chelsea forward’s record he is currently closing in on. Drogba, who represented the Blues between 2004 and 2012 (including a second stint in 2014/15), registered 104 goals during his trophy-laden stint at Stamford Bridge, becoming the first African centurion in the Premier League as a result.

     

    Salah has joined the Ivory Coast immortal in that exclusive, esteemed club, and he is now only four goals shy of drawing level with him as the most-prolific African in Premier League history, and five away from surpassing him as the continent’s record goal-getter.
