Liverpool Fans Erupt At Stunning Stats As Mohamed Salah Claims Another Incredible Record
Wobble? What wobble? Liverpool ignored Manchester City leapfrogging over them earlier in the week by returning to the top of the table with a blistering brushing aside of Bournemouth at Anfield this weekend.
There was further cause for celebration after Mohamed Salah once again got on the scoresheet, latching onto a cheeky Roberto Firmino backheel, on a fantastic Saturday afternoon for the Reds and in doing so became just the third Liverpool player in the last 16 seasons to score 20 goals in all competitions in successive campaigns.
He follows Liverpool legends Steven Gerrard (2007-08 & 2008-09) and Luis Suarez (2012-13 & 2013-14).
Last season Salah smashed the record for most scored in a 38-game Premier League season last year - with 32 - and was subsequently crowned Premier League Player of the Season, PFA Players’ Player of the Year, and FWA Footballer of the Year. Of course, he also picked up the Golden Boot.
In total - since his move from Roma in 2017 - the 26-year-old forward is closing in on 70 goals for Liverpool, whilst also providing almost a quarter of a century of assists.
Salah making up that terrific trio, accompanying Gerrard and Suarez in achieving that feet, will be surely a massive boost for Liverpool as they plough on in searching for their first Premier League title in almost three decades. Fans certainly lapped up Salah reaching yet another milestone.
