Mo limits! Salah sets new Premier League scoring record
Mohamed Salah moved clear of Alan Shearer, Cristiano Ronaldo and Luis Suarez with his 32nd league goal of the season.
Mohamed Salah set a new record for the most goals in a 38-game Premier League season with Liverpool's opener against Brighton and Hove Albion on Sunday.
Salah opened scoring against Brighton
The Egypt forward swivelled inside the penalty area to fire home with his left foot in the 26th minute, taking his impressive tally in the league this season to 32.
Salah's strike at Anfield sees him break free of a tie with three of the competition's legendary names.
Alan Shearer set the bar with 31 goals in the 1995-96 season, the first when the competition was reduced to 20 teams, with Cristiano Ronaldo matching the England striker's feat 12 years later during his time at Manchester United.
Luis Suárez also reached the same number in the 2013-14 campaign with Liverpool with his last goal for the Merseyside club before he joined Barcelona.
Salah's tally won't be enough to take the European Golden Shoe award, however, with Messi two goals in front with a game in hand.
