The Liverpool forward was on target again in a final
day clash with Brighton, taking his tally to 32 and a
new high for a 38-game top-flight campaign
Mohamed Salah has set a new record for Premier
League goals in a 38-game season, with the
Liverpool forward recording his 32nd effort of the
campaign against Brighton.
Heading into the final fixtures of 2017-18, the Egypt
international sat level with three modern day icons
on the English top-flight roll of honour.
A remarkable debut campaign at Anfield had seen
him net 31 times, the same return that Alan Shearer
managed at Blackburn in 1995-96.

Manchester United in 2007-08, before Luis Suarez
carried Liverpool agonisingly close to title glory with
an identical haul in 2013-14.
Salah has now blasted past them all, with the 25-

He had gone three games without finding the target

Boot , Salah also added another prestigious prize to
his ever-growing collection.

I have said before many times, it's always on my
mind to help the team win games.
"So now we're in the Champions League next year
and I've won the award, so I'm very proud. I'm
always trying to improve, I'm improving year after
"It's very special to break the record here [at Anfield].
I will do my best to win it next season!"
