Mohamed Salah has the opportunity to gloss his CV yet again as he closes in on a Premier League scoring record.
The Liverpool star will become the fastest player to reach 50 league goals for a single club in the division’s history if he can find the net once more in the next three games.
He heads into Sunday’s clash with Manchester United at Old Trafford boasting a record of 49 goals in 62 games since signing for the Reds.
Alan Shearer currently holds the accolade thanks to his 50 in 66 outings during his time with Blackburn Rovers between 1992 and 1996.
Salah is currently the joint-top scorer with Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero on 17 and hasn’t gone more than two games without scoring a goal in the league so far this season.

If Salah fails to beat David de Gea on Sunday, he will have the chance to add to his list of records against Watford and Everton the following week.
Should he achieve the feat, it will mark another record he has taken from Shearer following his historic 32 goals in a 38-game campaign in 2017/2018.
Given his efforts in front of goal thus far this term, it would be a major surprise were he not to succeed.
