Mohamed Salah levels Ronaldo, Alan Shearer & Suarez’s goalscoring record
The PFA Player of the Year prize may come on Sunday, but Saturday ensured it will already be another memorable weekend for the magnificent Mohamed Salah as he reached his latest landmark.
The record for most goals in a 38-game Premier League season “31”has now been equalled.
Alan Shearer, Cristiano Ronaldo and Luis Suarez have company in the shape of the electric Egyptian. A deft chip over Ben Foster, which is almost a trademark finish, puts Salah on course to overhaul that trio as, now up to 41, he chases down Ian Rush’s Liverpool record of 47 goals in all competitions.
No player in the history of the top-flight has scored more than 31 in a season, but the Egyptian King still have three games left to play.
Salah is now the third player in history to be directly involved in 40 or more Premier League goals in a single season, with 31 goals and nine assists.
The Liverpool star has claimed that he wants to win the Golden Boot award this season to prove former club Chelsea wrong.
