Mohamed Salah scores more winning goals for Liverpool than Harry Kane for Tottenham and Sergio Aguero for Man City
Feb. 15, 2020
Liverpool’s transformation into world beaters under Jurgen Klopp has been phenomenal and one of the key protagonists in their rise has been Mohamed Salah.
The forward made light work of English football in his first season, scoring a staggering 32 goals – a record in the Premier League for 38-game seasons.
And although he hasn’t replicated the extraordinary form of his breakthrough campaign at Anfield, he has remained a crucial cog in Klopp’s star-studded XI, who are surely on their way to a first top flight title in 30 years.
Due to the faultless performances of Virgil van Dijk, Sadio Mane and Trent Alexander-Arnold, Salah’s significance has perhaps gone under the radar in recent years, but as this goal stat suggests, his importance to Liverpool is not in question.

Since joining the club in 2017, the 27-year-old has scored 24 winning goals in the Premier League, at least six more than any other player.
The Egypt international has also scored a league-high seven winners in the competition this season and will be hoping to continue his red-hot form at Norwich on Saturday – a match you can follow live on talkSPORT .
