Salah drew level with the Uruguayan when he scored in Tuesday’s Champions League 2-0 triumph over Salzburg.
However, his double against the Hornets saw him move past the Barcelona star and Stubbins with 84 goals in all competitions for the reigning European kings – two more than Suarez (82 goals) achieved in 133 outings.
The former AS Roma man is behind Ian Rush (345 goals), Roger Hunt (285 goals), Gordon Hodgson (241 goals), Billy Liddell (228 goals), and Steven Gerrard (186) in the all-time standings.
With Saturday’s result, Liverpool are now unbeaten in 34 Premier League games, the third-longest run in the history of the competition after Arsenal and Chelsea.
