Egyptian star Mohamed Salah led his team, Liverpool, to a difficult win over Leeds United at the opening of his Premier League career.
Salah scored 3 goals in the match, two of them through two penalty kicks, and gave a good match in which the dust of his fast was cleared of scoring in the last 4 rounds of the league last season.
Pharaoh continues his brilliance in his fourth season with Liverpool, which he joined in the summer of 2017 from the Italian team, Roma.
According to the “Opta” statistics network, Salah became the first Liverpool player to score a hat-trick in the first round of the Premier League life, repeating the achievement of Irishman John Aldridge in the 1988-1989 season.
Salah also broke a record that lasted for more than 9 years in the English Premier League, and this match is the 35th in a row that Liverpool wins when Mohamed Salah hits the net, according to Opta Statistics.
The network added that Salah broke the record for the “Premier League” in this regard, which was registered in the name of former Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney (34 consecutive victories during which he scored goals with United from September 2008 to February 2011).
According to Opta, Salah’s first goal is number 50 in his 63 home matches in the Premier League, and only Alan Shearer has reached the same number of goals in fewer home matches (47 matches).
Opta also indicated that Salah scored the net on the opening day of the “Premier League” for the fourth consecutive season, and he is the second player to achieve this in the history of the competition after Teddy Sheringham (from 1992-1993 to 1995-1996).
