The goalscoring records Mohamed Salah could achieve in 2019/20

14 August 2019

Mohamed Salah is already off to a good start after scoring his first goal of the season against Norwich, and the Egyptian could achieve some incredible records this season.


So far, it’s 72 goals in 106 games in all competitions for Salah at Liverpool, with his goal against Norwich meaning he’s scored on the opening day in each of his three seasons at the club.

Salah’s first season at Anfield saw him become the quickest LFC player to Premier League goals, quickest Liverpool player to 25 goals in all competitions, fastest Liverpool player to 20 Premier League goals, most goals by a Liverpool player in a debut season, fastest Red to 40 goals, and most goals by a Liverpool player in a Champions League campaign.

He also set Premier League records, with his 32 goals being a record in a 38-game season, plus scoring in 24 games was also a record for the league.

All that earned him the PFA Player of the Year award, plus numerous other accolades.

His second season saw him become the quickest to 50 Premier League goals for Liverpool, doing so in just 69 games. He narrowly missed the Premier League record of 68 games.

As he enters his third season at Anfield, the 27-year-old could set more records this season.

If he scores 20 or more goals in all competitions, he will be the first Liverpool player to score 20 or more in three consecutive seasons since Michael Owen in 2000 to 2003.

If he scores 20 or more goals in the league, he’ll be the first Liverpool player to score 20 or more in three consecutive league seasons since Roger Hunt from 1961 to 1966.

And, if he scores 29 goals this season it will bring up his century for the club which would be a club record.

 
Salah’s honours so far:

2017 African Footballer of the Year, 2018 African Footballer of the Year, 2018 PFA Player of the Year, 2018 Football Writers’ Footballer of the Year, 2018 Premier League Player of the Year, 2018 Premier League Golden Boot, 2019 Premier League Golden Boot, Champions League Winner 2019
