History Maker: Mohamed Salah Sets Liverpool Goalscoring Record After Netting Against Watford


Liverpool hotshot Mohamed Salah has written his name into the club's history books with yet another splendid performance this weekend - bagging a remarkable four goals against Watford.

The former ​Chelsea and Roma attacker joined the Merseyside outfit last summer and has been quite the sensation at Anfield, scoring at a remarkable rate.

Playing against ​Watford on Saturday evening, the Egyptian scored a first-half brace to take his season tally to 34, but netted another two after the break to score a quadruple. He's now scored 28 ​Premier League goals this term.

Salah tied Fernando Torres' record of 33 goals in a single (debut) season with his first strike against the Hornets just four minutes after kick-off.

He went one better, topping the Spaniard's achievement with another goal just before half-time, two better in the final 15 minutes after jinking through the Watford back line, and three better with five minutes left.

Salah also became just the third Reds player to score more than 25 Premier League goals in a single season. Only Robbie Fowler (25, 28) and Luis Suarez (31), had done so prior to him, with Torres falling just short of the mark with 24 in the 2007/08 campaign.

The forward's 36 strikes makes him the only ​Liverpool player to score as many in their first season at the club.
