The general consensus is that, at present, Salah is performing as the best player in the world.
So far this term, the Egyptian has netted nine times in nine appearances, finding the back of the net in eight of those – against Norwich, Chelsea, Leeds, Crystal Palace, Brentford, Man City, AC Milan and twice at Porto.
Drogba is the current record-holder, having struck 104 times in 254 top-flight games, but Salah is close to eclipsing the former Chelsea striker with his current tally being 103 in just 165 outings.
Sadio Mane (99) sits third in the list, with Emmanuel Adebayor (97) and Yakubu (95) making up the rest of the top five.
It would be a fitting occasion for Salah given Watford were the opposition on the 29-year-old’s Liverpool debut, opening his account with the Reds’ third goal that day at Vicarage Road.
That includes a hat-trick in the 5-0 victory at Anfield in 2018, with Salah the sole player in the club’s history to net a treble against Watford.
There is no doubt the No. 11 will eventually surpass Drogba’s feat, and it would serve as another remarkable feather in his cap as he shatters record after record at Liverpool.
