Mohamed Salah the Record Breaker

Mohamed Salah the Record Breaker

What a season he’s having! Mohamed Salah is well on his way to becoming the Premier League’s top scorer this season and he’s breaking records. Who would’ve known he would have had this much impact at Liverpool F.C? it’s just wow!

Personal Honours:

He’s already been the player of the month twice in November 2017 and February 2018, the BBC’s African player of the year and Goal’s Arab player of the year.

Here are Mohamed Salah’s stats as of 1st April 2018:

  1. Out of 31 32 appearances he’s scored 29 30 goals, has won 19 times and losing only 4 times.
  2. Scored twice with a header, 5 times with his right foot and 23 with the left (only 1 penalty).
  3. 122 shots on goal with 60 on target, which means 49% accuracy.
  4. He has hit the woodwork 3 times and missed 19 big chances.
  5. A total of 834 passes, 9 assists and 76 crosses!
  6. His discipline has been superb, no yellow or red cards at all so far.

In dedication to his already excellent tally of goals just in the Premier League let alone across all competitions (which is 37 as it stands), I am going to list all the goals he scored right from the beginning but before that let’s have a look at all the records he’s already broken so far.

  1. He is currently the joint top African player with the most goals in the league (29 goals), he will surpass that with still 6 games to go for his club.
  2. Scored in 22 different games, previously the record was 21. He broke that with his header against Bournemouth on the 14th April 2018.
  3. The most left-footed goals in a Premier League season (23).
  4. HIghest scoring Egyptian in the history of English football the only other was Mido (22), remember him?
  5. Scored in 21 different Premier League games – joint top with Christiano Ronaldo. He’s till got two months to break this record and make it his own.
  6. He has as many goals as 6 entire teams in the League, OMG!
  7. The highest amount of goals in the Premier League is 31, he is currently on 30 and on course to make that record his.

I will update the above during and after the season ends in May 2018.

Now let’s take a look at all the goals in the League he has scored one-by-one!

    I love the humility and humbleness Salah shows despite the great things he has achieved in his football career.
