Klopp's Liverpool reach 300-goal mark – the best Premier League stats

Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane have scored 82 Liverpool goals this season

Mohamed Salah broke yet another record on Saturday, when he scored his 30th league goal to help Liverpool to a comfortable 3-0 victory over Bournemouth.

He is just the eighth player to reach that landmark in a Premier League season and the first African to do so – eclipsing then Chelsea striker Didier Drogba’s record of 29 in 2009-10.

More significantly, his tally in all competitions this season is now 40 – a figure only two other players in Liverpool’s history have achieved. Roger Hunt (1961-62) was the first – and Ian Rush (1983-84 and 1986-87) the second.

The 25-year-old’s goals and assists have earned Liverpool an extra 15 points this term – more than any other Premier League player – and he is closing in on Rush’s record of 47 goals from 1983-84.

It took Rush 65 games to reach that mark, but Salah has reached 40 it in 20 matches fewer – with eight goals in his past five appearances.

But it’s not all about Salah…

300 goals under Klopp – a ‘crazy’ amount
