Mo Salah’s hat-trick yesterday at Bournemouth saw him move onto 42 Premier League goals for the Reds in less than a season-and-a-half.
As the following tweet shows, his goal scoring is especially incredible when put into the context of other world-class players the club have had in the last few years.
It took Luis Suarez 78 games to hit 40 PL games for Liverpool. It took Mohamed Salah only 52 games. It’s staggering.

It can be forgotten just how good Salah is sometimes. Just like Lionel Messi, he does it so often, some people have come to take it for granted.
To better Luis Suarez’s record by such a distance is simply stunning and proves, if proof were needed, just how quickly he settled in and became world-class.
Salah will easily get more than 30 goals this season – and that would be another incredible return. Combine that with an excellent defensive record, and there is the recipe for success.
