Mohamed Salah scored for the first time in seven Premier League games last night as he helped push his side up to third in the table.

Bar two goals at Old Trafford in the FA cup, Mo Salah had struggled to find the back of the net in the Premier League in recent weeks. However, he rediscovered his goal scoring touch with two sensational goals in Liverpool’s 3-1 victory over West Ham last night.

The remarkable fact is that going goalless for seven games hasn’t affected Salah’s position in the goal scoring charts. The Egyptian international sits at the top of pile with 15 Premier League goals to his name, three ahead of second place Harry Kane.

Is Liverpool’s Egyptian King on his way to a third golden boot in just four seasons at the club? The evidence suggests that he’s well on his way to achieving this feat.

In 20 games this season Salah has registered 67 shots with 32 of them being on target. Just over half his shots on target have resulted in goals. With an average shots per game ratio of 3.4 there’s always a strong chance that Salah will find the back of the net.

The 28-year-old is just four goals behind the 19 goals he achieved last season in 17 less games played.

If the Egypt international keeps up his remarkable goal scoring form this campaign, he will be well on his way to achieving his best goal scoring tally since his arrival on Merseyside way back in the 2017/18 season.

Salah holds the record for the most goals in a 38 game Premier League season scoring 32 goals during the 2017/18 campaign.

His two sensational goals last night reminded us of the quality the two-time golden boot winner possesses.

Salah will have more than just the golden boot on his mind as he is just ten goals away from joining the Premier League’s 100 club. The 28-year-old boasts a remarkable league record scoring 90 times and providing 32 assists in just 142 Premier League games.

He is just 19 goals away from becoming the highest scoring winger in Premier League history, surpassing Ryan Giggs’ tally of 109. Salah has played 491 games less.

Not only has he cemented his place in Premier League history, he has also earned his place in the Liverpool hall of fame. After just four seasons at the club Mohamed Salah sits at 14th place in the all-time scoring charts at Liverpool with 115 goals to his name.

Should the Egyptian stay on Merseyside for future seasons it is extremely likely that he’ll break into the top 5 as he just 71 goals behind fifth place Steven Gerrard.

Mohamed Salah was also an instrumental part of Liverpool’s Premier League winning side helping Jurgen Klopp and Co. end the clubs 30 year wait for a league title. This isn’t the only medal Salah has acquired during his time on Merseyside.

He also helped secure Liverpool’s sixth European trophy, their first FIFA Club World Cup and their fourth UEFA Super Cup. Individually he has won the PFA players’ player of the year, the FWA footballer of the year, Premier League player of the year, two Premier League golden boots amongst many more awards and accolades.

Jurgen Klopp’s reds spearheaded by the world class Mohamed Salah will not only go down in the history books at Liverpool but as one of the best teams in the Premier League era.

Salah is under-appreciated by many however, he will go down as one of the all-time Premier League greats. His stats, trophies, medals and awards are evidence of Mohamed Salah’s greatness.
