Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah became the 30th Premier League player to join the exclusive club of players who have scored 100 goals in the top-flight on Sunday.
The Egyptian tapped in Alexander Arnold’s low cross to seal a century of goals during The Reds’ 3-0 away victory against Leeds United at Elland Road.
He also became the fifth fastest player to reach the illusive mark behind Alan Shearer, Harry Kane, Sergio Aguero and Thierry Henry.
His time in the Premier League did not start well as he was unable to carve out a regular starting place for himself at Chelsea, having signed from FC Basel in January 2014.
However, since arriving at Anfield from Roma in 2017, Salah has collected a century of goals in just over four seasons at the club.
The speed in which he has accrued these efforts is stunning and surprising all at the same time.
But there are many other players who have accrued a century of strikes under the radar.
Daily Star Sport looks at seven other players you may not have realised scored 100 Premier League goals.
Matt Le Tissier
Which Premier League player will be next to join the 100 club? Comment below
Southampton fans probably remember every single one of Matt Le Tissier’s 101 Premier League goals for Saints between 1992 and 2002.
Also known as 'Le God', Le Tissier is often accredited as being one of the most gifted players in English football history.
Fittingly, he secured his century of goals at the start of a new Millenium, hammering home a penalty in a 2-1 defeat against Sunderland.
His outrageous passing range and technical ability is what secured Paul Scholes' status as a Premier League legend.
Goalscoring prowess was never what made Scholes famous, despite his trademark of smashing the underside of the crossbar with his long-range volleys making fleeting appearances.
Despite only scoring more than 10 Premier League goals in two out of the 18 seasons he spent at Old Trafford, he did still manage to score 100 Premier League goals.
He reached the landmark in 2010, scoring the only goal of the game in a 1-0 away victory against Wolves.
On his day, Darren Bent was lethal.
He was always able to pick out the far corner of the goal with a drilled finish, with help from a loose beach ball on one occasion, and at times he was able to score at will at the peak of his powers.
Bent’s goalscoring prowess began to reduce when he left Sunderland for Aston Villa in a deal worth £24m in the 2011 January transfer window.
Despite failing to break the 10-Premier League goal mark in the following seasons, he managed to break the 100-goal barrier by scoring in a 2-2 draw for Villa against Queens Park Rangers back in February 2012.
He may be presenting Homes Under The Hammer these days, but the two-time Premier League champion used to hammer home goals for fun when he played for Manchester United, Coventry, and Aston Villa.
Dublin always had a keen eye for goal, and he finished his Premier League career with an impressive 111 goals in 312 appearances.
Despite injuries constantly stumbling the forward, he was marked his 100th goal in the top flight when he bagged in a 4-1 win against West Ham United.
Judging by his performances this season, Romelu Lukaku could be set to reach 200 Premier League goals not before too long.
The £98m man became the fifth youngest player to score 100 Premier League goals when he scored a deflected effort in a 2-0 home victory against Swansea in 2018.
Only Michael Owen, Robbie Fowler, Wayne Rooney and Harry Kane reached the prestigious landmark faster than the Chelsea hitman.
When he was not finding himself in the headlines for the wrong reasons, Nicolas Anelka was a predator in the box.
He had four outstanding seasons in the top division of English football, scoring 17 for Liverpool in 1999, 31 for Manchester City betwen 2003 and 2004, and hammering home 19 goals for Chelsea in 2009, finishing with the Golden Boot.
Just like Dublin, he recorded his 100th goal in a victory against West Ham to propel him to the Premier League's exclusive 100-goal club.
Most football fans in Britain would be lying if they said they had never tried to copy Robbie Keane’s iconic forward front-roll celebration.
He became the 15th Tottenham player to score 100 Premier League goals in 2008 when he fired a brace against Fulham.
In addition, his efforts against Fulham also made him the first ever Irish player to score 100 Premier League goals.
He still holds that coveted record to this day and it will take some effort to remove him from the summit.
