Salah Breaks Ronaldo Record

Liverpool's African superstar Mohamed Salah continued his record hunt on the weekend, beating a milestone set by Cristiano Ronaldo in the 2007/08 campaign.

Click through the gallery above to see the Africans, including one former Bafana Bafana star, who have scored the most goals in a Premier League season.

Salah was once again on the scoresheet in his side's 3-0 win over Bournemouth on Saturday.

In doing so, the Egyptian became the first player in Europe's top five leagues to reach 30 goals, breaking Didier Drogba's record for the most goals scored in a single campaign by an African.

That's not all, however. Salah also broke the record for scoring in the most Premier League games in a campaign, set by Cristiano Ronaldo in 2007/08 and later matched by Robin van Persie in 2012/13.

The match against Bournemouth was the 22nd Premier League fixture Salah has scored in this season, beating Ronaldo's mark for a 38-game campaign, as Squawka pointed out.

The overall Premier League record for scoring in the most EPL games in a campaign was set in 1993/94 by Andy Cole, who netted in 26 different matches that season.

However, Cole achieved his record run during a 42-game season, before the Premier League's current 38-game format was introduced ahead of the 1994/95 campaign.
