Only six players — Les Ferdinand, Ian Wright, Didier Drogba, Wayne Rooney, Erling Haaland and Harry Kane (twice) — have scored hat-tricks twice in a row. No visiting player had scored a Premier League hat-trick at Old Trafford until Salah broke that record a month after scoring his 100th goal. By scoring three goals, Salah became the African player with the most goals in the history of the Premier League (surpassing 104 goals scored by Didier Drogba), and the first Liverpool player to score in ten consecutive games, as well as the first Liverpool player to score three games in a row at Old Trafford. Salah is the fastest to score 100 goals for Liverpool, scoring only in England's top flight, as both Hunt and Parkinson scored some of their goals for Liverpool in the Second Division of the Football League.
On December 16, Salah scored Liverpool's second goal in a 3-1 home win against Newcastle United, the fifteenth consecutive Premier League game in which he scored or gave an assist, in what marked Liverpool's 2000th top flight victory.
