Salah breaks yet another Premier League record

Mohamed Salah’s sensational season showed no signs of stopping last night as the Liverpool attacker notched his 39th goal of the season in his sides crunch Champions League quarter-final second leg tie against Manchester City.

The Egyptian international’s superbly taken 56th minute strike at the Etihad effectively ended Pep Guardiola’s side chances of staging a remarkable comeback and sent Jurgen Klopp’s men through to the semi-finals.

Despite, not even playing as a central striker Salah has now become the first Premier League player in history to be directly involved in 50 goals in a single season, with the 25-year-old scoring 39 goals and provided 11 assists.

Salah has exceeded the expectations of even the most optimistic of Liverpool fans with his amazing goal scoring exploits this season.

In fact, the £38 million that the Red’s paid Serie A side Roma for the talented attacker last summer is starting to look like the bargain of the century.

Salah is currently the Premier League’s top scorer with 29 goals, and along with Man City’s Kevin De Bruyne he is the favourite to be named PFA Player of the Year.
