Mohamed Salah got off the mark in the opening game of the Premier League with the goal to make it 2-2 at Fulham, extending another top-flight record.

With Salah now tied down until 2025, there are at least two more opportunities to extend this unique record further, with the 30-year-old undoubtedly a Premier League legend.

It was a frustrating afternoon for Liverpool as they were held at Craven Cottage, but Salah was one of few positives to take from a comeback draw.

Alan Shearer, Wayne Rooney and Frank Lampard are the only other players to score eight opening-day goals, and Salah has done so in less than half the amount of appearances than any of those.

In doing so, Salah scored in his six consecutive opening-day fixture in the Premier League, following previous efforts against Watford (2017), West Ham (2018), Norwich (2019), Leeds (2020) and Norwich again (2021).

Over those six openers, Salah has found the back of the net an impressive eight times – including a hat-trick in the 4-3 victory over Leeds in 2020.

An eighth such strike has seen Salah move clear of Jamie Vardy, though the Leicester striker could draw level again or even overtake if he nets against Brentford on Sunday.
