Mo Salah breaks record of highest scoring African player in EPL history

Mo Salah breaks record of highest scoring African player in EPL history

Drogba achieved the record by scoring 29 goals in the 2009-10 season to help Chelsea to a treble, and it was equalled a fortnight ago after Salah got the victor against Crystal Palace.

"If I had a choice between the Champions League and the Golden Boot, then of course it would be the Champions League, no doubt the Champions League".

However, he returned to the starting lineup after midweek's assault on Manchester City in the Uefa Champions League.

"Liverpool then have a home game against Stoke and I would encourage Klopp to rest his front three for that one and have them ready for what will be a hard game at the Stadio Olympico in Rome".

Mohamed Salah insists that he "does not care" about personal accolades as he is instead exclusively focused on helping Liverpool to win the Champions League.

But they are also looking to secure qualification for the competition for next season and took another step towards that against Bournemouth.

Liverpool's terrific trio of Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah, and Roberto Firmino made their mark on the scoresheet, with Mane getting the Reds off to a flyer by netting as early as the 7th minute.

It was Salah who again hogged the headlines as he joined Roger Hunt and Ian Rush as the only players to score 40 times in a single season for Liverpool. It's a great feeling.

But can he break Rush's record of 47 set back in the 1983-84 season?


It has been a remarkable debut campaign for Salah following his off-season arrival from Serie A side Roma, who Liverpool will face in the Champions League semi-finals - the Egypt worldwide leading the Golden Boot race with 30 Premier League goals ahead of Harry Kane.

"I can not lie - it is in my mind".

"I am also sure that Tottenham's players try to help Harry Kane, and also Manchester City's try to help Sergio Aguero".

"We played against a very good team today, one of the best in Europe and they are showing it, it was a tough test and we learned a lot", Howe said after the match.

"Now we still have four games and they have five games so I have to think about my games and we see".

"His finish in the second leg of the quarter-final was just incredible and there have been so many moments like that throughout the season".

For all Liverpool's dominance, they only had one goal to show for it in the first half as Salah continued to be frustrated, with Steve Cook's brilliant challenge denying him.

"We played well and created many chances, scored three goals and it was well deserved".
