Salah Equals Drogba Goal Record

Mohamed Salah Equals Didier Drogba Goal Record

By Kurt Buckerfield - Apr 03, 2018 07:59 AM @KurtLaduma

Liverpool superstar Mohamed Salah was on target again this past weekend, equalling an African goal record set by Chelsea legend Didier Drogba in the Premier League.

Click through the gallery above to see the six highest finishes by an African in the EPL's goalscoring charts, including Benni McCarthy!

The Egyptian has been on fire since joining the Reds at the beginning of the season, exceeding many of fans' expectations.

The 25-year-old's consistency throughout his debut campaign at Liverpool has impressed supporters all around the world, with Real Madrid reportedly paying close attention.  

In his side's 2-1 win over Crystal Palace on Saturday, Salah scored his 29th league goal of the season, equalling the highest single-season tally set by an African in the English top flight.

Former Chelsea striker Drogba hit that same tally in the 2009/10 campaign, but Salah still has six games to better his numbers.  

Reports: Salah To Be Offered Massive New Salary

The Liverpool man has hit the back of the net 37 times and assisted a further 12 strikes in 42 matches across all competitions so far in this campaign.

Do you think Salah deserves to win the EPL Player of the Season? Let us know in the comments section below.

Top scorer doesn't automatically guarantee player of the season....David Silva will walk away with the player of the season coz of the huge role he played in helping City lift the league and probably going further in the Champions league
