Double scorer this Monday during the match of the 30e Premier League day, Mohamed Salah took part in the Liverpool festival against Leeds at Elland Road (1-6) and set himself a new historic record.
With a shot at the near post (39e) and a rolled up sublime (64e), Mo Salah scored his 106e and 107e left footed goals in the Premier League. More than any other player in Premier League history.
The Egyptian international (87 caps, 49 goals) thus beats the record held by a former home, Robbie Fowler, blocked at 105 goals, and now prances alone at the top of the ranking of the most prolific Premier League scorers with the left foot. The Pharaoh is widening the gap with his first pursuer in activity, the Algerian Riyad Mahrez. The Manchester City winger remains far behind with his 65 goals (current streak).
