Salah has become one of the best players in the world with Jurgen Klopp, helping the Reds end their long wait for a league title in 2019-20.
We have taken a closer look at the five players with the most goals and assists. in the Premier League since Salah made his Liverpool debut on August 12, 2017.
5. Sergio Agüero – 75 G&A
The Argentine international ranks fourth on the Premier League’s all-time scorers list at 180, and has maintained that prolific form into his 30s.
Scoring 21 goals in successive campaigns with Pep Guardiola when City won the league in 2017-18 and 2018-19 was particularly impressive.
He has scored 58 goals and recorded 17 more assists since the start of 2017-18. You’d imagine he would be higher on this list too, if it weren’t for his injury woes in 2020.
4. Raheem Sterling – 81 G&A
Sterling showed great promise during his decisive years at Liverpool, but has since established himself as one of the most prolific strikers in European football since Guardiola arrived at City.
He has scored 58 goals and established 23 more goals in the Premier League since Salah’s arrival.
Interestingly, he recorded 11 assists in the Premier League in 2017-18 and 10 in 2018-19, but has only had two since.

3. Jamie Vardy – 82 G&A
The eternal Jamie Vardy has made up for lost time since he made his Premier League debut at the age of 27 in 2014.
He has shown that his form in the 2015-16 Leicester title-winning season was no fluke either, clinching the Golden Boot last season with 23 goals, one less than his career best that miraculous year.
Only Harry Kane and Salah have scored more Premier League goals than Jamie Vardy since the summer of 2017 – he has scored 70, with 12 more assists.
2. Harry Kane – 91 G&A
Tottenham’s talisman has scored 73 goals and set another 18 since the start of the 2017-18 campaign.
There can be no question about his track record as a striker in years past, but this season he is proving that he is also an elite playmaker with an almost telepathic understanding with Son Heung-Min.
He leads the top five leagues in Europe in assists with 10, eight of which have gone to Son. He already has more assists in 11 starts in 2020-21 than his previous three seasons combined (eight).
Could you keep breaking Alan Shearer’s record? Will certainly try.
1. Mohamed Salah – 111 G&A
Salah proved at Fiorentina and Roma that he was a better player than José Mourinho gave him credit for at Chelsea, but few would have expected how good he would be on his return to the Premier League.
Since signing for Liverpool in the summer of 2017, he has broken the record for goals in a 38-game season with 32 in his debut campaign (with another 10 assists).
In total, he has recorded 82 goals and 29 assists since coming to Merseyside, 20 more goal contributions than any other player in the league during that span.
The Egyptian King of Liverpool is incomparable.
