Liverpool star Salah’s Premier League records compared to Aguero and Drogba

Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah has made nothing short of an incredible impact since arriving at Anfield from Roma in 2017.

After a lack of game time at Chelsea, Salah went off to ply his trade in Italy and salvaged his career.

However, a chance to move Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool was an offer the Egyptian simply couldn’t refuse.

Since then, Salah has marked his territory in England and the Liverpool winger currently holds no fewer than eight Premier League records.

The Egyptian star has surpassed several Premier League legends to achieve such a feat including the likes of Sergio Aguero, Didier Drogba and Alan Shearer.

Salah’s most notable record is 32 goals in a Premier League season, which he achieved in just 36 games during his first season in England in the 2017-18 season.

The 29-year-old surpassed another Liverpool great in Luis Suarez to reach that landmark, with the Uruguayan previously holding the record with 31 goals, which he set in his final season at the club.

In that same season Salah beat Robin van Persie’s record of scoring against 17 Premier League clubs in a single season when he Brighton became the 18th team he had netted against that campaign in what was a 4-0 win for the Reds.

The Egyptian also went on to win three Premier League player of the month’s, more than Aguero’s previous record of two.

Which Premier League record held by Salah do you think is his best? Let us know in the comments section.

Salah has also scored more goals than any other winger in Premier League history (100), compared to second best Cristiano Ronaldo’s 84.

Other notable Premier League records held by Salah include the most goals as a winger (100), compared to Cristiano Ronaldo’s 84 as well as the most teams scored against in one season (18), one more than Robin van Persie’s 17.

If it is to be Salah’s last season at Anfield, and in the Premier League, then the forward will leave having made a lasting impact in English football.
