Mo Salah out to equal Jamie Vardy EPL record

Liverpool attacker Mohamed Salah will be out to equal a Premier League record set by Jamie Vardy when the Reds welcome Newcastle United to Anfield on Thursday evening.

The Egyptian has scored in all four of his Premier League home appearances for Liverpool against Newcastle United, netting exactly once each time. Against no side does he have a better 100 per cent scoring record at Anfield in the competition.

The former Chelsea man has been in scintillating form for the Reds in the 2021-22 campaign, notching up 14 goals and 11 assists in 16 Premier League matches.

Since drawing a blank against Burnley in the second gameweek of the season, Salah has either scored or assisted in each of his side’s last 14 Premier League games.

Should the Egypt international directly contribute to a goal in midweek, he will equal the record of 15 set by Leicester City’s Vardy back in 2015.

During the Foxes’ title-winning campaign, Vardy scored or assisted in 15 successive matches before drawing a blank against Liverpool on Boxing Day.

Liverpool will also be aiming to hit an English football milestone in midweek, with the Reds currently sat on 1,999 top-flight victories.
