Four EPL Records Salah Holds Over CR7

Since joining Liverpool in 2017, Egypt superstar Mohamed Salah has smashed Premier League records on a regular basis, including a number of milestones previously held by Cristiano Ronaldo!

Salah first took the EPL by storm in the 2017/18 campaign, when he smashed home 32 goals to claim the Golden Boot award. His tally saw him break the record for the most goals in a 38-game season, which previously stood at 31 and was jointly held by Ronaldo, Alan Shearer and Luis Suarez.

During the same season, Salah set a new record for the most separate matches scored in, with the Egypt international netting in 24 of the 38 matches for the campaign, bettering the record of 22 Ronaldo had previously held with Robin van Persie.

He also collected the most Premier League Player of the Month awards in a single season, winning the accolade three times between November 2017 and March 2018. Ronaldo, who has four awards in total, only ever won the POTM crown twice in a single campaign. 

Salah has since added another notable milestone to his name in the form of the longest 100% scoring streak against a single Premier League opponent. The 27-year-old is the only player to have scored in six consecutive matches (from first to most recent) against the same team, having done so against AFC Bournemouth.
