The only player to have played a hand in a century of goals in quicker time is the league’s all-time leading goalscorer Alan Shearer, who reached the figure in his 100th appearance in the competition.
Salah, who has netted 17 league goals so far this season, is still in the running for a third consecutive Premier League Golden Boot award but finds himself four goals behind leading goalscorer Jamie Vardy for the campaign.
