Mohamed Salah has broken yet another Premier League record after finding the back of the net during Liverpool's clash against West Ham United.

The Egypt international has been impressive for the Reds since his return to the English top flight from AS Roma in 2017.

The Liverpool ace has broken numerous records since then, thanks to his stunning goalscoring streak.

Salah was at it once again on Sunday as he helped the Reds silence West Ham at Anfield to keep pace with league leaders Man City.

According to Sporting News, the former Roma star opened the scoring for the hosts from the penalty spot in the 16th minute of the encounter.

Salah breaks EPL record

The goal was enough to help him cement his name as one of the best players to ever play in the English topflight.

TalkSport reports that the Egyptian is now the first player in Premier League history to score or assist in 12 consecutive games.

Incredibly, the Liverpool forward has done this twice, achieving the first feat from August to December in 2021.

His current run started in April this year.

Meanwhile, the Reds added two more goals through Darwin Nunez and Diogo Jota after Salah's opener to help the home side secure maximum points.

Jarrod Boewn scored the Hammers' consolation in the 42nd minute of the tie.

Al-Ittihad want Mo Salah

Earlier, Sports Brief reported that Salah has reportedly become the latest target for big-spending Saudi teams, with Al-Ittihad looking to open talks with the Egyptian forward.

Al-Ittihad does not want to be caught napping, with the future of Karim Benzema uncertain after Nuno Espirito Santo revealed that the French forward was not part of his plans.

Reports claim Benzema wants to leave Al-Ittihad, a club he joined in June as a free agent from Real Madrid, as he is not happy at the Saudi Pro League club, especially with Nuno Espirito Santo.
