Mohamed Salah has now entered the top 10 on the list of Liverpool’s all-time highest
goalscorers. The No. 11’s strike against Brentford on Saturday was his 131st since
joining the Reds in 2017, lifting him above Sam Raybould into outright 10th in the
ranking of most prolific players in club history.
The 29-year-old is not new to records and milestones coming his way, they seemingly
arrive after every game he plays such is his stunning return since landing at Anfield
And in the four years since he arrived, he has played 210 games, and by netting his
131st goal on Saturday, Salah is now the club’s outright tenth highest scorer of all
The No. 11 had shared the spot with Sam Raybould, who starred in the early 1900s,
temporarily after his strike against Crystal Palace.
Now the honor is all his, but there are still a number of names he could hunt down
to move further up the list.
Harry Chambers (151) and Michael Owen (158) are the closest targets and a 34-goal
season at the very least would see the Egyptian move into the eighth spot.
Incredibly, Salah’s goal at Brentford also coincided with his 100th in the Premier
League for Liverpool and he became the fourth-quickest to do so in the league’s
history after reaching the century in 151 matches.
Only Alan Shearer (124), Harry Kane (138), and Sergio Aguero (147) scored their first
100 league goals for a single club at a faster rate.
“Incredible moment. He’s been incredible ever since he came to the club. He is a
fantastic lad,” Jordan Henderson said of his teammate after yet another milestone.
And to think the majority of his goals have come as a right-winger. The sky is the
limit for Salah and more history no doubt beckons.
