Another week, another landmark for Mohamed Salah.
Liverpool’s No.11 scored twice in Saturday’s 4-3 win over Crystal Palace at Anfield to take his Premier League goal tally to 50.
That his half-century was achieved in just 72 appearances means only three players – Andy Cole, Alan Shearer and Ruud van Nistelrooy – have reached the figure quicker than Salah.
“An exceptional achievement from a world-class player,” was Jürgen Klopp’s verdict.
And here, with the help of Opta, we’ve crunched the numbers behind the Egyptian’s latest goalscoring feat…
5,374 – Minutes it took Salah to reach 50 PL goals (only Shearer (5,337) has done so in fewer)
48 – Goals scored for Liverpool (in 59 games), with the other two scored for Chelsea
47 – Goals scored from inside the area
41 – Goals scored with his left foot
28 – Goals scored at Anfield (in 30 games for Liverpool)
7 – Goals scored with his right foot
6 – The number of players (Dirk Kuyt, Luis Suarez, Fernando Torres, Michael Owen, Steven Gerrard and Robbie Fowler) to have netted more PL goals at Anfield
4 – Penalties scored
2 – Headers scored
