Mohamed Salah is set to take up even more pages in Liverpool’s history books as Premier League action finally returns for Jurgen Klopp’s men.
Salah will lead the line for the Reds as they travel to west London to take on newly-promoted Fulham, fresh off their bumper summer contract extension that made him Liverpool’s highest-paid star of them all the temperature.
But these are goals the Egyptian has in mind, and at Craven Cottage Salah has the chance to extend his own goalscoring record five times in the return from the opening matchday of the Premier League season.
No other player has matched the feat, and Salah can do six when Klopp’s men take on the Cottagers in a game they are strongly tipped to leave with maximum points.
Salah has a point to prove after signing a lucrative £350,000-a-week contract nearing his 30th birthday, and the striker can do it in style by also overtaking club icon Steven Gerrard at the same time.
Should Salah find the back of the net against Fulham, he would not only extend his Matchday 1 scoring streak, but also fire a goal past Anfield darling Gerrard with 121 Premier League goals.
Gerrard has 120 for the Reds, which Salah himself also currently sits on.
Liverpool’s Egyptian maestro is just 31 goals away from breaking into the top 10 of all-time Premier League goalscorers, and he looks certain to do so given his future is now locked in the red half of the Premier League. Merseyside.
Salah’s closest rival in terms of collective goals scored is none other than Jamie Vardy, who himself is 18 Premier League strikes away from entering the top 10.
In recent days, Vardy has found himself linked with both Manchester United and Chelsea, who are said to have inquired with Leicester City about the veteran striker’s future and the possibility of a summer transfer.
It is understood the Foxes are reluctant to part ways with their main scorer, who shares a strong understanding with manager Brendan Rodgers.
As for Salah, another record in sight is of course the best foreign player of all time, in the Premier League.
That honor currently goes to Sergio Aguero, who amassed 184 goals during his trophy-laden spell with Manchester City.
Given that Salah likely has the rest of his career to spend in the English top flight with Liverpool, the target is well within reach.
