The Egyptian King could make another slice of Premier League history in Liverpool’s trip to West Ham United.
Thierry Henry’s record of scoring a goal in each of a club’s first five away games in a Premier League season is under serious threat.
Mohamed Salah equaled the Arsenal legend’s record in style by scoring a hat-trick in Liverpool’s 5-0 win at Manchester United on October 24. He now has a chance to take the record outright.
The 29-year-old has scored in every one of Liverpool’s five away league games so far this season, and he’ll be keen to continue that run in the club’s visit to the London Stadium on Sunday.
If he does, Salah will become the first player in Premier League history to score in his club’s first six away matches.

When did Henry set the original record?
The Frenchman became the first player in the league’s history to score in his side’s first five away games in 2001/02 against Middlesbrough, Chelsea, Fulham, Derby, and Southampton.
That run ended in October 2001 when Henry failed to score in a 1-1 draw between Sunderland and Arsenal.
Which teams has Salah scored against on the road?
The Liverpool forward has found the back of the net away to Norwich, Leeds, Brentford, Watford, and Manchester United.
Salah’s away record in the Premier League this season is seven goals and four assists in five matches.
