Liverpool ace Mohamed Salah breaks (another) Premier League record

Liverpool ace Mohamed Salah breaks (another) Premier League record

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.

"Salah deserves to be crowned Footballer of the Year and to carry off the Premier League's Golden Boot but a bigger picture has emerged that is more important than all of that now".

The Reds are on the brink of winning the Champions League for the first time since 2005 after Jurgen Klopp's men booked their place in the semi-finals on Tuesday night. "I don't care about the rest".

Mohamed Salah wants to rewrite Liverpool's record books but admitted he would swap all of his goals if it means he becomes a Champions League victor.

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

But it took nearly 70 minutes for the sensational Salah to get his moment as he rose to head Trent Alexander-Arnold's cross over Cherries keeper Asmir Begovic.




Mo Salah has only seven goals left in all tournaments to surpass Roger Hunt's record of scoring the most goals for Liverpool in a single season and he has already joined Hunt and Ian Rush as the only Reds players to have scored 40 times in a single season.

He said: "Of course it's a great feeling".

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

'I can not lie - it is in my mind, ' said Salah.

"But you know, you can see today with the team everyone tries to pass the ball to me to help me". I'm also sure Tottenham's players try to help Harry Kane and also Manchester City's try to help Sergio Aguero'.

Ever since they were unceremoniously knocked out of the FA Cup after a 2-3 defeat in the 4th round at the hands of West Brom towards the end of January, Liverpool have consistently been firing on all cylinders, wiping out teams that have stood in their way, including the seemingly infallible Manchester City.
