Liverpool's Mo Salah makes Premier League history with goal in win over Norwich

Everything went according to plan for Jürgen Klopp and Liverpool as the Reds resumed normal service to begin their 2021-22 Premier League program with a comfortable 3-0 win over Norwich at Carrow Road.

Despite finishing third in 2020-21, Liverpool were 17 points behind eventual champion Manchester City and a good start to the current campaign was required by the Anfield team.

After hitting the back of the net today (while also providing the first cut assist for Liverpool from Portuguese striker Diogo Jota), Salah brings his goal total for the club to 95 Premier League goals in 145 appearances; a return of 0.65 goals / game, which is exceptional for a winger from any point of view.
