To say that Mohamed Salah has been in sensational form for Liverpool this season would be something of an understatement.
There are just so many things that make the Egyptian international’s goal scoring exploits in the Premier League so amazing.
As our man Danny Ward from the weekly Football Faithful Podcast – go listen and meet us back here, we’ll wait – has pointed out, Salah is not even a centre forward, and he only cost fractionally more than Chelsea paid for Danny Drinkwater.
As we all know our beloved Premier League has been the home to some truly outstanding goal scorers over the years.
However, even with the brilliance of strikers like Alan Shearer, Thierry Henry, Ruud Van Nistelrooy etc. It seems that Liverpool’s number 11 is actually on course to finish this season with the best goal-to-minutes-ratio ever, since the inception of the EPL in 1992.
Freelance footballer writer Andrew Beasley has done the analysis that shows Salah is on course to beat Harry Kane’s record, of finding the net 29 times at the rate of a goal every 87 minutes last season.
It would also take a brave man to bet against the former Chelsea and Roma attacker going on to overtake the record of most goals ever scored in a Premier League season, which is 34 and is jointly held by Andy Cole and Alan Shearer.
