Liverpool striker Salah sets Premier League 38-match scoring record

Watch as Mohamed Salah reaches 32 goals setting a record for the most in a 38-game season.

Liverpool striker Mohamed Salah set a 38-match Premier League season scoring record, scoring his league-leading 32nd goal against Brighton in the 26th minute on the final day of the season Sunday.

Dangerously lurking around in the box, Salah took a Dominic Solanke pass and buried it past Mathew Ryan in the short corner.

Salah’s Liverpool side ended up winning the game 4-0.

In scoring his 32nd goal of the season, Salah eclipses the likes of all-time Premier League scoring leader Alan Shearer in 1995-96, Cristiano Ronaldo in 2007-08 and Luis Suarez in 2013-14, who all scored 31.

Earlier on Sunday, Salah was named the Premier League Player of the Season in his first season with Liverpool and first season back in the Premier League since heading across to Serie A’s Fiorentina on loan from Chelsea.

Though his Liverpool side’s Premier League season ended Sunday, Salah still has a couple more chances to add further glory to his season in the Champions League final on May 26 against Real Madrid and playing for Egypt in this June’s World Cup.
