If Mo Salah scores v Manchester United today, he’ll become the fastest player to 50 Premier League goals for a single club – eclipsing Alan Shearer’s record of 66 games with Blackburn Rovers.
Considering Salah has spent over half his Liverpool career starting on the right flank, this is beyond incredible…
Fastest players to 50 PL goals for a single team⚽:
Alan Shearer (Blackburn Rovers) – 66 games
Ruud van Nistelrooy (Man Utd) – 68 games
Fernando Torres (Liverpool) – 72 games
Sergio Aguero (Man City) – 81 games
Mo Salah currently has 49 goals in 62 games for Liverpool.🇪🇬🔴 pic.twitter.com/2oh4Nai7OS

Salah though has never scored against Manchester United…
Today would be an excellent time to start, as any result at Old Trafford will see us go back to the top of the Premier League table – with Manchester City playing Chelsea in the League Cup Final instead.
In all competitions this term, Salah is on 20 goals, but he has just one in his past four games – which is a relatively barren run for the Egyptian King.
We really hope he has the bit between his teeth today and gets on the ball plenty – willing to run at United’s defenders.
Imagine seeing his iconic arms out celebration in front of our away supporters and a baying home support?!
