Who’ll follow Salah into Premier League’s 100 Club next? Mane, Sterling, Ronaldo?

By opening the scoring for the Reds in their 3-0 win over Leeds United on Sunday, Salah brought up his century and joined the illustrious “100 Club” — i.e., players who have scored 100 goals or more in the top flight since 1992-93.

Salah is also the second African player to score 100 goals in the Premier League, following in the wake of Didier Drogba, who eventually departed Chelsea after two stints at Stamford Bridge with 104 top flight goals to his name.With his 98 goals for Liverpool plus additional two goals for Chelsea earlier in his career, Salah becomes the first new member of the 100 Club since Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy earned his place in April 2020.

Vardy (who has 120 goals overall) is one of only three active Premier League players above Salah in the 100 Club, along with Kane (166 goals) and Romelu Lukaku (116).Salah is joint-29th in the all-time chart, level on 100 goals with Matthew Le Tissier, though given the latter retired in 2002 there is every chance that the Liverpool star will move clear in the weeks to come.

There are several active Premier League players just below Salah on the list for whom centurion status is within reach, with a few on course to enter the 100 Club before the end of the 2021-22 season.

Sadio Mane (97 goals in 233 games)
