14 amazing stats behind Mohamed Salah’s 200 Liverpool goals

After 327 appearances and more than six years at the club, Mohamed Salah recorded goal number 200 for the club – and his path to the historic tally has been nothing short of incredible.

“Incredible number for a super special, super-super special player. I don’t know how often he saved us with a goal he scored in the right moment,” Jurgen Klopp said after Saturday’s win.

That’s right, throughout his career at Anfield, Salah has scored one significant goal after another – from winners and equalisers to Champions League-winning penalties.

The 31-year-old now joins only Ian Rush (346), Roger Hunt (285), Gordon Hodgson (241) and Billy Liddell (228) to score a double century for Liverpool.

It is an amazing achievement, and here are a few of the stats behind the 200.

 

Only 30 were scored from the penalty spot, that accounts for just 15 percent of his goals.
