Liverpool have become the second club after Manchester United to score 2,000 goals in the Premier League.

The Reds hit a milestone in Saturday’s meeting with Brighton and Hove Albion thanks to a Mohamed Salah penalty in the 61st minute to put his side ahead 2-0.

Jurgen Klopp’s side are far from United in terms of all-time goals in the tournament, however, with their fierce rivals boasting 2,173.

Arsenal are next on the list behind United and Liverpool with 1,997 goals, followed by Chelsea (1,953) and Tottenham (1,716).

Liverpool’s Premier League goalscoring season came in 2013-14 when they scored 101 goals, making them one of only three teams to reach a century in a single campaign.

More than half of Liverpool’s 2,000 goals have landed at Anfield, and Newcastle United’s St James’ Park is the venue for the highest-scoring rivals (43).

So, surprisingly, Newcastle are the team with the most goals against Liverpool, netting 108 times against the Magpies as a whole.

Mohamed Salah’s 32-goal season in 2017-18 stood as a major player for Liverpool in the tournament, Luis Suarez (31 in 2013-14) being the only one to break the 30-goal mark.

Robbie Fowler is still Liverpool’s leading scorer in the Premier League’s history of 128 and is one of four players to reach the club’s centenary – along with Steven Gerrard, Michael Owen, and Salah.
