Records Mo Salah could script for Liverpool in 2019-20
Mohamed Salah has been a strong performer for Liverpool since he joined the club in 2017. The last two seasons have seen Salah living up to the bill on a consistent basis. He has scored goals aplenty and the number of assists has helped Liverpool as well. Salah will want to script some fascinating records in 2019-20. Here's more.
Salah eyeing three successive Golden Boot awards
Salah stole the show in 2017-18 to win the Premier League Golden Boot award. He amassed a staggering 32 goals in the EPL. Salah also was the joint-highest goal-scorer in 2018-19 and won the prestigious award once again. If Salah manages to score most goals this season, then he will be the second player to win the Golden Boot on three successive occasions.
Salah can join an elite club
Only two players have won the Golden Boot thrice in the Premier League. Alan Shearer won it in 1995, 1996 and 1997. Thierry Henry won the award in 2002, 2004 and 2005. Salah can join these two legends if he wins the award this season.
Salah will chase Premier League Player of the Season award
Salah won the Premier League Player of the Season award in 2017-18. If he can manage to stay on top of his game and dictate the show, then he could earn this award for the second time. Only Cristiano Ronaldo, Nemanja Vidic and Thierry Henry have won it twice. A win will see a Liverpool player winning the same for the third successive season.
Can Salah overcome Gerrard's UCL tally?
Salah is second on the list for most Champions League goals scored by a Liverpool player (16). Steven Gerrard (30) leads the show. Salah can eclipse Gerrard by scoring 15 goals in the UCL this season. Cristiano Ronaldo has scored the most UCL goals in a season (17). Therefore, it is a realistic target for Salah to get past Gerrard.
Salah could join a special club
Salah has scored 72 goals for Liverpool in total across all competitions. He needs 28 more to reach the 100-goal mark for the Reds. With this, Salah can become only the 17th Liverpool player to achieve the feat. He is also in line to surpass Luiz Suarez (82) and Fernando Torres (81) in terms of career goals for Liverpool.
