Here, Press Association Sport takes a statistical look at Salah’s season.
Salah needs only two more Premier League goals to reach 30 for the season.
The feat has been achieved only nine times before in the Premier League era, by seven different players—and three of those came in 42-game seasons in the days when there were 22 teams in the top flight.
Salah’s next goal will take him level with Didier Drogba for the most prolific Premier League season by an African player.
Drogba scored 29 for Chelsea in 2009/10.
Reds’ Greatest Debutant
With his four goals against Watford, Salah overtook Fernando Torres’ record for the most goals in a debut season with Liverpool—he now has 36 in all competitions, to Torres’ 33 in 2007/08.
A Rare Hat-Trick
Despite Salah’s prolific season, Saturday was his first Liverpool hat-trick.
He became only the fourth Liverpool player to score four goals in a Premier League game.
Robbie Fowler and Michael Owen achieved the feat twice apiece, and Luis Suarez was the most recent to do so against Norwich in December 2013.
Embarrassing the Competition
He has scored 23 goals with his left foot alone.
