Jurgen Klopp salutes “top-class” Mohamed Salah for joining the exclusive Premier League 100-goal club.

Salah was on target as Liverpool convincingly beat Leeds United 3-0 at Ellan Road.

The 29-year-old forward tapped the ball into the back of the net after getting on the end of Trent Alexander-Arnold’s low cross into the box to give his side the lead at the 20-minute mark.

It marked his 98th league goal for the Reds, with the former Chelsea man becoming a Premier League centurion in only his 162nd match – the fifth-fastest player to reach the milestone.

“With Mo’s record, it’s crazy. I don’t know how many he can break and he’s probably desperate to do so,” Klopp told after the full-time whistle, speaking to Sky Sports.

“Since he joined us, what a player! And he’s still hungry.

“I saw him in the dressing room and we were all in the situation concerning Harvey but he was still not happy for not scoring one or two other goals. That’s how top-class players are and that’s fine.”
