Salah beats Ronaldo, Suarez, Alan Shearer to set new Premier League goal record


Liverpool ace, Mohamed Salah has broken the record of scoring the most number of goals in a 38-game Premier League season.

The Egyptian international netted the opener in Liverpool’s final game of the season against Brighton on Sunday.

The record was level between three players at 31 goals in 38 games: Alan Shearer, (Blackburn Rovers, 1995-96) Cristiano Ronaldo, (Manchester United, 2007-08), Luis Suárez (Liverpool, 2013-14).

Salah has now broken the record, as the forward is credited with 32 goals in 38 EPL matches.

The 25-year-old will lead the Reds to battle Real Madrid in the Champions League final slated for May 26 in Kiev.
