In Photos: Mohamed Salah’s 50 league goals for Liverpool FC

5 April 2019

Mohamed Salah has become the fastest player ever to record 50 league goals for Liverpool FC.


The Egyptian netted the milestone goal against Southampton, meaning he’s scored 50 goals for the Reds in 69 matches – three fewer games than the next quickest, Fernando Torres.

Signed from Roma in summer 2017, Salah lit up his debut season on Merseyside with a record-breaking 32 Premier League goals in just 36 games.

The forward’s form has continued during his second campaign and he reached 50 goals for Liverpool with his 18th league strike of the season against Southampton.

However, his six-game goalless streak meant the Egyptian missed the chance to break Alan Shearer’s Premier League record to reach the 50-goal mark with a single club in the shortest amount of matches (66).

We’ve had a chronological look back at every one Salah’s Premier League goals for the Reds in photos.


It was the perfect start for Salah, who scored on his debut for Liverpool at Watford, poaching an effort from close-range…
