Liverpool star Mohamed Salah has kept up his awesome and scintillating goalscoring form by scoring again against West Brom in his 38 Premier League outing and has drawn level with Luis Suarez, Cristiano Ronaldo, and Alan Shearer with his 31st goal of the season, and looks set to break their record before the season curtain draws to a close.
The PFA Player of the Year prize may go ahead Sunday, but Saturday game guaranteed it will as of now be another significant weekend for Mohamed Salah as he reached yet another milestone.
31 – Mohamed Salah has scored 31 Premier League goals this season – the joint-most by a player in a 38-game PL campaign (also Alan Shearer 95-96, Cristiano Ronaldo 07-08, Luis Suarez 13-14). Elite. pic.twitter.com/6xq5A1WTJe

The record for 31 Premier League goals in – 38 games – has now been equaled. The electrifying Egyptian superstar has now joined the train of Premier League big boys such as Alan Shearer, Ronaldo, Luis Suarez who all have notched 31 league goals.
A deft chip over Ben Foster, which is right around a trademark strike, puts Mo-Salah on course to upgrade that trio as, now up to 41, he pursues down Ian Rush’s Liverpool record of 47 goals in all competition.
His 72nd-minute strike doubled Jurgen Klopp’s side lead at The Hawthorns, but the guests were pegged back by the relegation battlers in the closing stage of the game as they both share the spoils.
Alan Shearer set the benchmark in the 1995-96 season while at Blackburn Rovers, with Ronaldo matched the Newcastle legend record in Manchester United’s title-winning campaign in 2007-08.
While Luis Suarez scored 31 goals when Brendan Rodgers’ Liverpool finished second to Manchester City in 2013-14, but in-form Salah has matched that goal count with three Premier League game still to play.
