An African superstar has continued his brilliant goalscoring form and has scored his 30th goal of the season, which is more than Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo have netted in 2017/18.

Click through the gallery to see the top goalscorers in all competitions this season.

Mohamed Salah was on target as Liverpool thumped Porto 5-0 away from home on Wednesday night, while Sadio Mane scored a hat trick and Roberto Firmino also got on the score sheet.

Salah scored his side’s second strike to take his overall tally for the current campaign to an impressive 30 goals in all competitions.

In so doing, he becomes the first Liverpool player since Luis Suarez to reach the 30-goal mark and only the 13th in the club’s history.

Salah has also scored more goals than Messi, with 27, and Ronaldo, with 25. Only Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane, who sits on 33 strikes, has netted more goals in 2017/18 than the African.
