1. Top African scorer in a season:
Salah continues the long, proud tradition of African superstars in the Premier League. The first record in his sights now is Didier Drogba’s 29 goals in the 09/10 season, the most by any African player in a league season. Drogba is not just an African and Chelsea legend; he is one of the Premier League’s defining icons and to surpass his mark will mean a lot.
2. Most goals for Liverpool in the Premier League and in the Season:
Salah sits on 28 goals following his four past Watford this weekend. Luis Suarez netted 31 in a legendary 13/14 campaign for Liverpool, and Salah has seven games to surpass his mark. The most goals scored overall in a season for Liverpool is 47 by Ian Rush: Salah has 36 so far.
3. Best goalscoring ratio in Liverpool history:
Salah is averaging 0.88 goals a game this season, the Liverpool record is 0.94 in the 1902/03 season. If he can find form in the key games leading up to the battle for Top Four and Liverpool’s ambitious Champions League campaign, he could have the most efficient season in Liverpool history.
4. Most goals in a Premier League Season:
The big one. Alan Shearer and Andy Cole both scored 34 goals in a season, the Premier League record, but these seasons were longer than the current 38-game schedule. The record for the 38-game season is jointly held by Cristiano Ronaldo and Luis Suarez at 31 goals. Salah has the opportunity to break both records in his remaining seven games and seal his immortality.
