Not even Harry Kane has scored more Premier League goals than Mohamed Salah since he joined Liverpool

Mohamed Salah’s Premier League goal record is unrivalled since he joined Liverpool.

The forward moved to Anfield in the summer of 2017 for a fee of £34million with few batting an eyelid following the conclusion of his spell at Chelsea just a year earlier.

However, with speculation ongoing about a record-breaking move to Saudi Arabia, Salah’s efforts for Jurgen Klopp’s side are becoming more widely appreciated.

Since arriving at the club the forward has since gone on to become a Premier League great with an impressive 139 top flight goals in the years that have followed.

Most impressively is the fact that no other player has scored more Premier League goals in that time.

Heung-min Son moved to Tottenham in 2015 and has proven himself as a key man in north London, scoring 88 goals between 2017 and now.

Sadio Mane, Salah’s teammate also boasted a strong goalscoring record at Anfield, netting 90 times in the top flight before leaving for Bayern Munich in 2022.

Jamie Vardy was a key part of Leicester’s rise to stardom in the Premier League with plenty of goals to his name, scoring 94 between 2017 and the Foxes’ relegation at the end of last term.

Salah’s closest rival, however, was Harry Kane.

The England skipper is one of the Premier League’s greatest strikers, but even he couldn’t surpass Salah’s goalscoring record, netting just 135 goals in six season.

While the now-Bayern Munich star’s tally is still very impressive, it just goes to show how dominant Salah has been during his time at Anfield.

Liverpool will be hoping that there’s plenty more to come as well as long as they can fend off interest from Al-Ittihad.
