With 88 goals in 137 games, Egyptian Mohamed Salah is now on the heels of his Senegalese teammate in Liverpool, Sadio Mané, who has 91 goals in 210 games played.
Top scorer with 13 goals in 16 games (ratio 0.81), Liverpool’s Egyptian star Mohamed Salah is the most prolific African footballer in recent years in the Premier League. In 121 games played under the Reds’ tunic since the 2017-2018 season, the Pharaoh has managed to plant 86 goals and offered 31 assists.
The Ivorian legend, Didier Drogba, who has long marked the history of Chelsea, is the top African scorer of all time in the Premier League with 104 goals in 254 games. A record that is not about to be equaled or surpassed, even if the Senegalese Sadio Mané or the Egyptian Mohamed Salah, have more than enough to make such a bet.
Already the Pharaoh makes a very beautiful first part of the season in PL. In 16 games played, Mo Salah scored 13 goals and distilled 3 assists. He is now alone at the head of the best fireworks players of this championship, in front of the South Korean Son Heung-Min (Tottenham, 12 goals), the English Dominic Calvert-Lewin (Everton) and the Portuguese Bruno Fernandes (Manchester United), with 11 goals each.
Arriving in Liverpool in 2017 from AS Roma, Mohamed Salah alias « Picasso » has become a real serial killer across the Channel. An infernal trigger that puts the various defenses in the Premier League to the torment. This season, the Egyptian star is in another dimension with impressive statistics.
In the clash of the 13th day of the PL against Tottenham (2-1), Mohamed Salah was again decisive, just like in the large victory of the Reds over Crystal Palace (7-0). According to the statistics of Opta Joe, the Pharaoh was decisive against Spurs on the last seven confrontations in the Premier League. He is directly involved in 6 goals; that is 5 goals and one assist in these seven games. Moreover, Tottenham is one of the favorite victims of Mohamed Salah in PL. Every time he meets Spurs, the Egyptian has always been up to the task.
With 88 goals in 137 games (ratio 0.64), Mohamed Salah is now on the heels of his Senegalese teammate at Liverpool, Sadio Mané (91 goals in 210 games), who scored only 6 goals in 16 games this season in the Premier League. At this rate, the Egyptian could soon overtake Sadio Mané as one of Africa’s top scorers in the Premier League.
