The match was the 100th game across all competitions Salah has scored in for the Reds, and his goal against the Canaries means he is the only player ever to score in the opening game of five consecutive Premier League seasons.

In Manchester, meanwhile, Pogba joined an elite list of players following his sterling performance in Manchester United's 4-2 win over Leeds United on the weekend.

The French midfielder provided the assists for the goals scored by Mason Greenwood, Fred and Bruno Fernandes (twice) to become only the seventh player in English history to assist four strikes in one game.
