Salah Breaks Drogba's Premier League Record

By SL International - Apr 15, 2018 08:55 AM

Liverpool star Mohamed Salah has broken a Premier League record set by legendary Chelsea striker Didier Drogba following his goal against Bournemouth.

Click through the gallery to see the five highest finishes by an African in the Premier League's golden boot charts.

Salah's superb season continued after he found the back of the net in the Reds' 3-0 over Bournemouth on Saturday afternoon.

In doing so, the Egyptian took his league tally to 30 goals in the season, breaking Drogba's record of 29 which he scored in the 2009/2010 campaign.

Salah has now scored 40 goals across competitions this term, becoming only the third player in Liverpool history to reach that figure.

Everyone have a chance to overtake everyone, if we fans think our favourite players can win it we will be trying to gas by favouring at the same time

@ Spanish laliga,how can u think salah is not or won't be on the list? For Balloon d'or there is still a long way for all the players, there will be not even a top 30 or 20 list before UCL and world cup, do not rush, if they rush, u wait, there is still a long way, every player have a good chance to shine and add into what he started.

This happened yesterday and you're only reporting it now, Cowditor do you really think we depend on you for soccer news? by the way Didier Drogba will always remain the greatest African to ever kick the ball in the EPL.....Egyptians never really regarded themselves as Africans, they always fought to be recognised as Europeans
