Mohamed Salah Sets Another Premier League Record For Liverpool

Liverpool’s midfielder, Mohamed Salah has set another record for himself just days before the football season starts.

The 29-year-old scored twice and set up another goal in Wednesday’s 6-0 victory over the Whites, taking him to 160 goal involvements in the English top flight and a new record for an African player.

The Egyptian who scored the second goal for the Reds against Manchester City at the Community Shield. The game was between the winner of the Premier League and the FA Cup in the previous season.

Remarkably Salah, who has been Liverpool’s top goalscorer in each of his four seasons at the club, has achieved this feat in 72 fewer games than Drogba.

Salah became the first person to score more goals against the Cityzens since the 2017/18 football season. The Egyptian has scored eight goals and five assists against City since he joined from Roma in 2017.

The feat means Salah has been directly involved in more goals (13) against a Pep Guardiola team than he has against any other side.

Salah is now 27th in the all-time Premier League goal involvement list, but almost halfway to Alan Shearer’s record of 324.

The Liverpool forward leads this season’s scoring charts with 19 league goals – seven more than second-placed team-mate Diogo Jota despite missing two games while on international duty at the Africa Cup of Nations.
