FilGoal | News | Salah faces Arsenal and sets his eye on a record not seen in 54 years


Liverpool striker Mohamed Salah will enter the Arsenal match on Wednesday and set him to a new record.

Liverpool will visit Arsenal in round 36 of the Premier League.

If Salah succeeds in scoring a goal against artillery, he will raise his tally in the league this season to 20 goals with Liverpool.

Salah would thus become the first Liverpool player to score 20 league goals in three consecutive seasons since Roger Hunt who did it in the seasons of 1963-1964, 1964-1965 and 1965-1966.

The Egyptian international will be the fourth player to do so throughout the club’s history.

If Salah participates against Arsenal, it will be his 150th match with Liverpool in all competitions, and he scored 94 goals before him.

A goal against Arsenal will make it equal to the number of Jack Parkinson who scored 95 goals in 150 Reds matches, while scoring two goals will lead him to exceed this number.

Roger Hunt is Liverpool’s biggest scorer in the first 150 games for any player with the team, having scored in 102 events.

The expected goal in Arsenal’s net will make Salah and Sadio Mane the first duo of Liverpool players to score 20 goals each in all competitions for the third season in a row, since Hunt and Ian St. John in 1963-1964.

Salah defends the Golden Boot award for the English Premier League goal scorer in the last two seasons, after crowning the title of the competition absent from Liverpool 30 years ago.

The former Basel player scored 19 goals in the league this season 3 rounds before the end of the competition, 4 goals behind Leicester striker Jimmy Vardi.

In his first season with Liverpool, he won the award with 32 goals, two ahead of Tottenham striker Harry Kane.

Last season, Salah shared the prize with his colleague Sadio Mane and Obamyang, with 22 goals.

Only two players in English Premier League history have won the award 3 times, and they are Shearer and Thierry Henry, Arsenal’s top scorer.
