The Egyptian was on target in Liverpool's 3-0 win over Bournemouth on Saturday, bringing up his 30th league goal of the season and 40th in all competitions.

The 25-year-old has proved to be one of the signings of the season in England, and is now the African with the most goals in a single Premier League campaign after beating Didier Drogba's previous record of 29 strikes.

Since the format change from the English first division to the Premier League in 1992, only seven players have scored 30 or more goals in a single season, with Alan Shearer reaching the landmark twice.

Andy Cole is the first player on the list with his 34 strikes in the 1993/94 campaign, while Sunderland legend Kevin Phillips is also among the names.

Cristiano Ronaldo struck 31 times in the 2007/08 campaign for Manchester United, beating the likes of Fernando Torres and Emmanuel Adebayor to the top scorers award that season.

Former Arsenal forward Thierry Henry hit the back of the net 30 times in the 2003/04 season, while Robin van Persie is on the list with his 30 goals in the 2011/12 campaign.

Before Salah entered the fray, former Liverpool attacker Luis Suarez was the last player to reach the milestone.

It should be noted that the record of 34 strikes in a single campaign, held by both Cole and Shearer, was during a time in which the EPL still had 22 teams, and 40 matches in a campaign.
