Liverpool star Mohamed Salah breaks unique Premier League record held by Robbie Fowler for 16 years
Baku, April 19, AZERTAC
Mohamed Salah broke the Premier League record for the most left-footed goals, held by Robbie Fowler, with his two strikes against Leeds, according to Goal.com.
The Egypt international scored two goals to help Liverpool break their five-match winless run courtesy of a dominating 6-1 win against Leeds United at Elland Road. His first goal came in the 39th minute from the edge of the penalty box as his left-footed strike nestled into the top corner.
It was his 106th Premier League goal with his left foot, which dethroned former Reds striker Fowler from the summit, who had held the record for 16 years. Salah did not have to wait long for the second as he completed his brace in the 64th minute after being set up by Cody Gakpo to take his tally of left-foot goals up to 107.
Salah is miles ahead of his nearest challenger in terms of current players - Manchester City's Riyad Mahrez - as the Algerian has 65 left-footed goals to his name to date. The other players in the top 10 no longer ply their trade in the Premier League.
