Mo Salah’s 29th goal of the domestic season today saw him draw level with a bunch of Premier League legends.
Firstly, he’s now the highest scoring African in the top flight, alongside Didier Drogba.

Secondly, the no.11 has now bagged in 21 different PL games, putting him level with Robin van Persie and Cristiano Ronaldo, with six matches left to go…
Take a minute to think about that!
Most games scored in in a Premier League season…
2007/08 Cristiano Ronaldo (21)
2012/13 Robin van Persie (21)
2017/18 Mo Salah (21)

In his Sky Sports interview after the game, the shy and humble winger actually cringed when told by the reporter how many times he’s scored in total – 37!

Can you imagine Cristiano Ronaldo reacting like that?! Or anybody else, for that matter?!
Of course not.
Salah is Liverpool’s best signing of the Premier League era.
