scored three goals to prove himself as the best African goal-scorer in the Premier League’s history, overtaking Didier Drogba, who had the record before Salah.

The Egypt international has scored 107 goals in the Premier League, standing above Drogba, who has 104 goals in his career.

The player himself has talked about the matter expressing his happiness with the victory and with his record.

The Reds attacker was delighted with his side's performance and the tree points, telling Sky Sports:

"I think it is great to win 5-0 here, we knew before the game it would be tough if we did not play our game.

"We knew they will come and try to give everything so we had to give 100%.We just tried to play our football and play in between the lines to create more chances. We did that and were lucky to score.

"As long as the team keep winning I am happy and to give my best to the team to win. The first goal I gave to Naby Keita to score.

"We know what it takes to win the Premier League, we did it two years ago. A big win here but still only three points.

"We try to win each game and try to win the title. We need to play to win everything. From our heads from pre-season, we need to win the Premier League and hopefully we go for that.

"After half-time we were talking in the dressing room to just keep going and score as many as we could."
