Salah equals Drogba, Van Persie, Ronaldo EPL goalscoring record

Mohamed Salah’s late goal snatched victory for Liverpool at Crystal Palace and it brought the Egyptian level on the EPL goalscoring records.

The African Player of the Year took his tally this season to 29 goals, equaling Didier Drogba’s African goals for most English Premier League goals set in the 2009-10 season.

Salah also has equalled a record held by Robin van Persie and Cristiano Ronaldo, by scoring in 21 games of the Premier League season, and is only the third person since 1992 to do so. With six more games to go, Salah looks good to extend his goals haul.

Salah took a touch before firing past keeper Wayne Hennessey after Andy Robertson had crossed in from the left.
