Mohammed Salah is not stopping, since last night he defeated Messi in the race to reach 30 goals in the 2017-18 season and broke a record of Cristiano Ronaldo in the process.
The Egyptian winger scored a goal in the 3-0 win against Bournemouth on Saturday at Anfield, reaching 30 goals in the league and 40 in total in all races.
The Egyptian representative became the first player in the five major European leagues that scored 30 goals in the league this season. Lionel Messi, who has 29, left the opportunity to do so in Barcelona’s 2-1 win over Valencia.
Now, Salahs only needs one goal to equalize the record of the former Premier League starts with 31 goals in 38 league matches . Cristiano Ronaldo, Alan Shearer and Luis Suarez had scored 31 goals in a Premier League season.
Also, Salah has set a new record becoming the first ever player to score goals in 22 different Premier League matches in a single season, a record he previously shared with Ronaldo and Robin van Persie.
