Mohamed Salah is rewriting history: What records can he still beat?
Against Crystal Palace the Egyptian scored his 29th Premier League goal and 37th in all competitions.
First in 130 years
Mohamed Salah has scored as many -- or more -- goals as seven teams this season. His winner against Palace took him level with Southampton and Stoke who are both also on 29. Brighton (28), Burnley (27), Swansea (25), Huddersfield (25) and West Brom (24) have scored less.
Crystal Palace and Newcastle are next on 31.
No player in the history of English has ever matched more than two clubs with his goalscoring tally!
Salah is level with Didier Drogba to become the highest joint scoring African player in a single Premier League season with 29 goals.
Only Rush and Hunt ahead
Rush scored 40 and 47 goals in the 1983-84 and 1986-87 seasons, while Roger Hunt had 42 goals in 1961-62. On the over hand, the Egyptian needed just 40 games to reach his tally, whilst Rush had played in 65 and 57 matches respectively.
