5 records Mohamed Salah has broken and 5 records he can still break this season
If you are remotely associated with European football or following it in any way, then you have definitely heard of Mohamed Salah this season. The Liverpool no.11 has been in devastating form in his debut season with the Reds as he continues to surpass everyone's expectations, including his own.
The Egyptian is leading the race for the Premier League Golden Boot as well as the European Golden Shoe, which provide a key measure of his achievements this season. The highlight of Salah's exploits is his consistency as he regularly bamboozles opposition defenders with his pace, skill and a lethal left foot while delivering for Liverpool every single time, with the latest being in the Champions League quarterfinals against Manchester City.
Thus, the 25-year old is breaking records for fun this season and already has erased a few previous ones. So, let's take a look at 5 records the wide forward has already made his own this season (as of 13th April 2018).
#5 Top-scoring Egyptian in Premier League history
Kicking off the records is one related to Salah's homeland, Egypt. He is already the leading Egyptian goalscorer in the Premier League with 29 goals, seven more than his countryman Mido. The latter scored 22 goals in the English top-flight playing for Tottenham, Middlesbrough, Wigan Athletic and West Ham.
Thus, Salah has usurped his compatriot with relative ease in a single season and can be expected to score a good amount by the time he is done in England. Further, in last month's game against Watford at Anfield, he became the first Egyptian to score a hat-trick in the Premier League, as the speedster bagged four goals, rising higher into the spotlight.
