Another milestone for Salah in EPL history

Another milestone for Salah in EPL history

20 Jan 2019, 06:00

Liverpool star Mohamed Salah scored his 50th Premier League goal to inspire a 4-3 win over Crystal Palace on Saturday; the milestone seeing the Egyptian becoming joint-fourth quickest player to reach the landmark in the history of the competition.

Jurgen Klopp's side was behind at half-time on Salah's 72nd Premier League appearance before he prodded home number 49 on the volley to make it 1-1.

The former Chelsea FC man then capitalized upon an error from Palace goalkeeper Julian Speroni to put Liverpool 3-2 ahead 15 minutes from time. Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane scored the other goals.

Stats

According to stats provided by Opta, Andy Cole has the quickest to a Premier League half-century, reaching the landmark after 65 appearances-one fewer than Alan Shearer and three better than another Manchester United hero, Ruud van Nistelrooy.

Salah is the joint-fasted Liverpool player to 50, level with Fernando Torres, while ex-Anfield favorite Luis Suarez now rounds out the top 10.
