Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah has moved level with Emmanuel Adebayor as Africa’s joint-second top goalscorer in Premier League history, following his strike in the club’s 2-1 win at West Bromwich Albion on Sunday.
Salah has scored 97 goals in 156 Premier League matches and is second to only Didier Drogba amongst footballers from the African continent. Chelsea legend, Drogba, scored 104 Premier League goals over the course of his Blues career.
The Egyptian forward is also close to breaking into Liverpool’s top-10 list of all-time leading goalscorers having moved up to 12th last week.
Salah has scored 22 league goals this season and is level with Tottenham Hotspur captain Harry Kane atop the 2020-21 scoring charts with two rounds of fixtures remaining.
The 28-year-old has already won two golden boot awards during his time at Anfield and will be hoping to make it three by the end of the week.
Salah has scored 31 goals in 49 appearances across all competitions for the Reds this season.
Liverpool are away to Burnley on Wednesday before playing host to Crystal Palace on the final day of the Premier League season this coming Sunday, 23rd of May.
