Relentless Salah eyes Shearer record goal tally

15 Abril 2018

One more league goal and Salah joins Alan Shearer, Cristiano Ronaldo and Luis Suárez as joint top Premier League scorers, although the chances are he might go out in front.

"He told me he is going to claim all three", was the Liverpool captain's response when asked to appraise the Egyptian's performance.

Kane currently trails Salah by five goals with five league games left to play, and will hope to decrease the deficit against Brighton and Hove Albion on Wednesday (AEST).

James Milner, a 77th-minute substitute in the Bournemouth win, joked that Salah would be lodging a claim for the Reds two goals either side of his fantastic, looping header. He's just got to keep it going, with his work rate, his movement off the ball, how strong he is.

But, with Christian Eriksen again on the scoresheet, it did not take long for jokes at Kane's expense to resurface on social media - including one from Arsenal's Hector Bellerin.

First the Egyptian went flying in the penalty area claiming a push in the back from Aké, though Chris Kavanagh was having none of it and replays proved him right.

Jurgen Klopp had been tipped to make significant changes, but a growing injury list and a desire to see off Chelsea for a Champions League qualification spot means he has gone close to full strength.

That barely does his 30th league goal of the season justice, for Salah still had to apply the right amount of power and precision to get the ball above and beyond a 6ft 5in goalkeeper. No wonder Kane is worried.

And now Jordan Henderson has waded into the debate, dropping a brilliant comment about the situation during his interview after the Bournemouth win.
