Egyptian forward Mo Salah has equalled the Premier League record scoring in the most games in one season, with six games still left to play.
Salah’s match-winner against Crystal Palace means he has now scored in 21 games so far this term, equalling a record set by Cristiano Ronaldo in 2007-08, and matched by Robin Van Persie in 2012-13.
His tally now stands at 37 goals in all competitions, and with 29 so far in the Premier League, he will set a new scoring record for goals scored in a season if he scores in each of the remaining six fixtures.
Andy Cole and Alan Shearer share the current record, having each scored 34 goals in one season – though those were in 42 match seasons. Luis Suarez is one of three players to reach 31 goals in 38-game seasons, a record which Salah looks a sure bet to break.
