Mohamed Salah equals Didier Drogba’s Premier League record
Following his late winner at the Selhurst Park, the Egyptian has now reached 29 Premier League goals, and is one goal away from becoming the highest-scoring African in a single league campaign.
The Ivorian scored 29 Premier League goals during the 2009-2010 season, when he led Chelsea to the domestic triple [Premier League, FA Cup, and Community Shield].
Overall he managed to score 37 goals in 44 games across all competitions, the same number of goals the Egyptian has this season, but in two games less.
Salah will now aim to become the second African to win the Golden Boot after Didier Drogba, who won it twice in 2007 and 2010.
He has also a massive opportunity to break Andy Cole and Alan Shearer’s record for most goals scored in one Premier League campaign (34), with the Egyptian needing to score six goals in the remaining six Premier League games.
The Reds’ remaining games will be against Everton, Bournemouth, West Brom, Stoke City, Chelsea, and Brighton & Hove Albion.
However, their next game will up against Premier League leaders Manchester City in the quarter-finals of the UEFA Champions League next Wednesday.
