Egyptian Mohamed Salah’s 100th English top-flight goal helped the 2019 champions Liverpool beat Leeds 3-0 away last season at Eland Road on Saturday, September 11th, 2021.
Leeds failed to win any of their first four top-flight matches in a season for the first time since 1958-59.
Egyptian forward Salah tapped in Trent Alexander-Arnold’s low cross and give the Reds a 20th-minute advantage, with Fabinho bundling home the second following a corner five minutes after the break.
The game itself delivered too, complete with another scoring feat as Salah notched his 100th Premier League goal via a simple finish.
Only Alan Shearer (124), Harry Kane (141), Sergio Aguero (147) and Thierry Henry (160) needed fewer Premier League appearances than the 161 it has taken him to reach the milestone.
Salah, Mane and Diogo Jota led the Leeds defence a merry dance throughout, threatening to run riot in a fascinating encounter packed with as many glaring misses as gloriously intricate attacking play, largely from the away side.
Sadio Mane had missed a number of chances in the game, but made absolutely certain of the points with a low finish into the far bottom corner in injury time.
Leeds had their chances too, with Rodrigo firing the best of them straight at Alisson with the game still goalless.
