Mohamed Salah Betters Ronaldo, Suarez and Shearer to Set Premier League Goal Scoring Record

Mohammed Salah has set a new record for most goals scored in a 38-game Premier League season with Liverpool’s opener against Brighton and Hove.

The Egyptian International took his tally to 32 after swivelling inside the penalty area to fire home with his left foot in the 26th minute cementing his name in the history books.

This strike has made him go one better than premier league legends Alan Shearer, Cristiano Ronaldo and Luis Suarez who jointly shared the record of 31 goals.

Alan Shearer set the 31 goal record in the 1995-96 season when the premier league had just been reduced to 20 teams, while Cristiano Ronaldo matched it 12 years later during his spell with Manchester United.

Liverpool teammate Luis Suarez reached the same numbers in the 2013-14 season in his final game before he moved to Catalonia.

The significance of breaking this record cannot be taken lightly, more so in his debut season. It has stood firm for 23 years despite the premier league seeing greats like Thiery Henry, Cristiano Ronaldo, Didier Drogba and Wayne Rooney playing for more than one season in England.

He is so far Europe’s most prolific forward with a remarkable 44 goals and 13 assists to his name. That puts him ahead of Lionel Messi (40) and Cristiano Ronaldo (42) with one more game still to go.

He faces Ronaldo’s Real Madrid in the Champions League final on May 26th, a game that has been touted the decider of this year’s Golden Ball and Ballon d’Or winner.
