Salah ties Liverpool record for goals before New Year's Day

Salah ties Liverpool record for goals before New Year's Day

Mohamed Salah has tied a Liverpool record by scoring his 23rd goal of the season before New Year's Day.

The Egypt international continued his prolific start to life at Anfield by scoring both goals in Liverpool's 2-1 win over Leicester City on Saturday.

That brace brought Salah to 17 goals this Premier League campaign, and 23 in 29 matches in all competitions before the new year — equalling a Liverpool record he now shares with Roger Hunt.

In fact, Salah has been in such prolific form that his individual total trumps the goalscoring exploits of eight Premier League clubs in all competitions.

The 25-year-old is leading the way for a Liverpool side that also set a club record on Saturday with 77 goals through 30 matches in all competitions this season.

That haul bests the team's previous record for goals at this point in the season as a top-flight club, set when the Reds scored 75 times through their first 30 matches of the 1980-81 campaign.
