Mohamed Salah finished his stellar 2017/18 Premier League campaign on a high, scoring his 32nd goal and breaking an all-time record jointly held by Cristiano Ronaldo.

Salah scored the second goal in his side’s 4-0 win against Brighton & Hove Albion on Sunday, taking his tally to 32 for the season.

Name Club Goal
Harry Kane (Tottenham Hotspur, 2017/18) 30 goals
Robin Van Persie (Arsenal, 2011/12) 30 goals
Thierry Henry (Arsenal, 2003/04) 30 goals
Kevin Phillips (Sunderland, 1999/2000) 30 goals
Alan Shearer ( Blackburn Rovers, 1995/96) 31 goals
Lui Suarez (Liverpool, 2013/14) 31 goals
Cristiano Ronaldo (Manchester United, 2007/08) 31 goals
Mohamed Salah (Liverpool, 2017/18) 32 goals

In doing so, he broke the record for most goals during a 38-game Premier League campaign, set by Alan Shearer with Blackburn Rovers in 1995/96, and since equaled by Ronaldo at Manchester United in 2007/08 and Luis Suarez at Liverpool in 2013/14.

The Liverpool winger became only the second African to lift the Premier League golden boot, following in the footsteps of Didier Drogba, who won it twice with Chelsea in 2006/07 (20 goals) and 2009/10 (29 goals).

Harry Kane, meanwhile, wrote his name into Tottenham Hotspur’s record books, becoming the first player in the club’s history to finish the season with 30 Premier League goals after scoring a brace in Spur’s 5-4 against Leicester.
