Eric Dier produces assist of the season for Mohamed Salah’s record-breaking goal

Eric Dier inadvertently played the pass that allowed Mohamed Salah to open the scoring for Liverpool against Spurs

Mohamed Salah has scored 20 Premier League goals faster than any Liverpool player in history.

He’ll undoubtedly be thanking his team-mates for helping him adapt to the club so quickly.

But the man he’ll really owe it to is Spurs’ Eric Dier.

It was Dier’s pass that put Salah through on goal.

His pass completely cut out Spurs’ back four allowing Salah to sit Hugo Lloris down and slot into the far corner.

Does it still count as an assist?

As well as becoming the fastest player to reach 20 Premier League goals for Liverpool Salah has joined an exclusive club.

The Egypt international is the fourth African player to score 20 Premier League goals in a season.

Kanu was the first player to do it while at Arsenal, with Didier Drogba following him at Chelsea.

Yaya Toure scored exactly 20 Premier League goals for Man City during the 2013/14 title-winning season and now Salah has joined in.

Salah has taken just 25 games to reach the milestone.

It’s already the highest total he’s achieved in a single campaign, beating the 15 goals he scored for Roma last season.

Any regrets Chelsea?
