Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah Equals the Records of Drogba, Cristiano Ronaldo and Van Persie

With their last win against Crystal Palace yesterday, Mohamed Salah equalized the records of Cristiano Ronaldo and Robin Van Persie.

The Reds were about to leave London with just one point, when the Egyptian international scored a goal in the end to give Liverpool a decisive away win.

Mohamed Salah currently has 29 goals in 21 Premier League matches this season. This figure was made by the Portuguese in 2007-2008 and Van Persie (2012-2013).

With his 29 th goal, Egyptian joined Didier Drogba, hitherto only African player to have scored a lot of goals in a single Premier League season. Mohammed Salah is likely to write the history of the Premier League if he scores in the next Liverpool games.

The former AS Roma player is involved in 38 goals in the league this season (29 + 9 assists), the biggest total in England since Luis Suarez in 2013-14 (43).  He also scored his 37th goal of the season in all competitions. Only Ian Ruch (1983-84, 1986-87) and Roger Hunt (1961-62) did better for Liverpool over a season. The Egyptian is indeed in the legend of the Reds.

After their match against Manchester City on Wednesday for the quarterfinals of the Champions League, Liverpool will play in the Premier League Everton.
