Salah breaks Ronaldo record with match-winner against Crystal Palace

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.
