Salah Equals Cristiano & Van Persie's Premier league Goal Record

Mohamed Salah has equalled a record held by Robin van Persie and Cristiano Ronaldo after scoring the winner in Saturday's 2-1 win over Crystal Palace.

The Liverpool attacker has now scored in 21 games of the Premier League season, and is only the third person since 1992 to do so.

Ronaldo managed the feat in 2007-08, as Manchester United romped to the Premier League title. The Portugal international, once the most expensive footballer in the world, scored a total of 31 times, with Sir Alex Ferguson's men beating Chelsea to the league trophy.

Van Persie also achieved the feat whilst at United, netting 26 times as United again won the title, in Sir Alex Ferguson’s final season, with a gap of 11 points to nearest rivals Manchester City.

Salah will surely end the season without a Premier League winners' medal around his neck, with Pep Guardiola's City just two games away from being crowned champions.
