Liverpool goal machine Mohamed Salah continues to surprise the football World. On Saturday, the winger netted his 30th goal of the season against Bournemouth at Anfield. The forward is not the tallest but his goal this weekend came via a header and the fans love it.
The Egyptian is now five goals clear at the top of goal-scoring charts. Harry Kane claimed Christian Eriksen goal last weekend but he could not score one for himself at Wembley Stadium on Saturday night. Manchester City won the match 3-1 to get back to winning ways after losing three consecutive matches in all competitions. They will win the title if West Brom beat Manchester United at Old Trafford on Sunday.
Back to Salah, the 25-year-old has now become the first player in top five leagues in Europe to score 30 league goals. He was level with Lionel Messi at 29 goals but now he is one step closer to the European Golden Boot too.
The former AS Roma star has also taken over the mantle from former Chelsea striker Didier Drogba. The Ivory Coast forward was the only African player to ever score 29 goals in Premier League. The record now belongs to the North African.
As for Ronaldo, a number of records are at risk. The former Chelsea winger has now overtaken CR7 to become the first player to score in at least 22 Premier League matches. The record (21) was held by the Portuguese sat alongside Robin Van Persie.
Who is next? The Reds forward next target is Ronaldo record of 42 goals set in 2007/08. He currently has 40 goals with 6 games to play. The Egyptian ‘Messi’ also has to beat Ian Rush record of 47 goals in a single season for Liverpool.
