Mohamed Salah Breaks Cristiano Ronaldo's Premier League Record

By David Kappel - May 14, 2018 07:36 AM @kappilinho

African superstar Mohamed Salah finished his stellar 2017/18 Premier League campaign on a high, scoring his 32nd goal and breaking an all-time record jointly held by Cristiano Ronaldo and two others.

Click through the gallery above to see the players with the most goals in a 38-game Premier League campaign.

Salah scored the first goal in his side's 4-0 win over Brighton & Hove Albion on Sunday, taking his tally to 32 for the season.

In doing so, he broke the record for the most goals in a 38-game Premier League campaign, set by Alan Shearer with Blackburn Rovers in 1995/96, and equalled by Ronaldo at Manchester United in 2007/08 and Luis Suarez at Liverpool in 2013/14.

The Liverpool winger became only the second African to lift the Premier League golden boot, following in the footsteps of Didier Drogba, who won it twice with Chelsea, in 2006/07 (20 goals) and 2009/10 (29 goals).

Harry Kane, meanwhile, wrote his name into Tottenham Hotspur's record books, becoming the first player in the club's history to finish the season with 30 Premier League goals after scoring a brace in Spur's 5-4 win over Leicester City.

He became only the eighth player to score 30 goals in a 38-game Premier League campaign, joining Salah, who hit the 30-goal mark earlier in the season.
