Egypt’s Muhammad Salah Becomes Liverpool’s All-Time Highest Goal Scorer
Mohamed Salah works his way into Liverpool’s history books on Sunday as he became the all-time top scorer in the English Premier League.
The Egyptian met arch-rivals Manchester United at Anfield, initially needing two goals to overtake Robbie Fowler at the top of the all-time charts. He eventually did just that – scoring twice as the Reds won what is now a memorable game.
Salah’s brace was just two of seven goals Liverpool scored that day, securing their biggest-ever win against the Red Devils.
With the two goals, Salah increased his Premier League tally with Liverpool to 129 in just 2005 games.
The striker has been one of England’s best players since joining Liverpool in 2017, winning the Golden Boot award three times and breaking the record for most goals in a 38-game Premier League season with 32 goals in 2018.

The 30-year-old was congratulated on his performance by the man who set his record as Fowler emerged to witness Liverpool’s biggest win over their rivals.
Alongside Salah, Cody Gakpo and Darwin Nunez also helped each other create a memorable night at Anfield by putting Man United to the sword.
Roberto Firmino then completed the defeat late in the night at 7am and scored a goal in the week his departure from the club was announced.
The defeat is Man United’s biggest defeat in their entire history and the first time since 1931 that they have been beaten by such a large margin.
