Liverpool’s Egyptian forward Mohamed Salah on Saturday broke a long-standing Premier League goals scoring record by netting his 32nd goal of this season.

The 25-year old scored against Brighton and Hove Albion on the last day of the season, surpassing the record jointly held by Cristiano Ronaldo, Luis Suarez and Alan Shearer.

Shearer set the record at 31 in the 1995/96 season, with Ronaldo and Suarez equalling it in the 2007/08 and 2013/14 seasons respectively.

Salah’s record-setting goal meant he finished the season as the Premier League’s top scorer, adding the Golden Boot onto his already impressive display of awards this season.

Before Saturday’s game, Salah was named the EA Sports FIFA Player of the Season.

Liverpool won the game 4-0 to ensure they qualify for next season’s Champions League.
