• Salah has scored 47 goals at Anfield over the last 3 seasons
  • He has scored 21 goals so far this season for the Reds
  • He scored in Liverpool's 4-0 win over Crystal Palace on Wednesday

Mohamed Salah, one of the best strikers in the world at present, is one goal away from breaking a Premier League record held by Cristiano Ronaldo since 2009.

Salah was once again instrumental in Liverpool FC’s 4-0 win over Crystal Palace on Wednesday in the Premier League. He scored the second goal for the match, while the other scorers were Trent Alexander-Arnold, Fabinho, and Sadio Mane.

It was Salah’s 15th Premier League goal at home and overall, the "Egyptian King" has netted 17 goals in the league in the 2019-20 season. No other player has scored more than 10 home goals in the Premier League this campaign. Continuing to dominate at Liverpool’s fortress Anfield, Salah now has scored 47 home goals in the Premier League over the last three seasons.

That is the most home goals over a span of three campaigns in England’s top-flight league since Ronaldo, who coincidently had also scored 47 goals at Old Trafford between 2006 and 2009.

Liverpool have a total of seven fixtures remaining in the ongoing Premier League season. Out of which, three will be played at Anfield and hence, Salah will have ample chances to surpass Ronaldo.

Known for being a tactical player, Salah has a brilliant technique and eye for goal and he is primarily known for his pace, movement, clinical finishing, and dribbling skills. Salah, who moved from Roma to Liverpool in 2017 for a transfer fee of $47 million, has established himself as a core member of Jurgen Klopp’s team, who is inches away from clinching the 2019-20 Premier League title.

After bagging the Premier League’s Golden Boot award in 2017-18 and 2018-19 seasons, Salah’s form has not taken a dip as he has scored a tally of 21 goals in 41 games in 2019-20 for the Reds across all competitions.

Liverpool have not won the league title in 30 years. When Premier League resumed after a three-month break due to the coronavirus, Liverpool were two wins away from clinching the title. However, they ended up with a goalless draw against Everton last week. By winning the match against Crystal Palace on Wednesday, the Reds are now two points away from finally lifting the prestigious trophy.

In fact, Liverpool can secure the 2019-20 Premier League without kicking the ball, provided the reigning champions Manchester City lose to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Thursday.
