Mohamed Salah’s Stats Compared With Premier League Greats Show How Good He Is

Mohamed Salah’s Stats Compared With Premier League Greats Show How Good He Is

Mohamed Salah's return to the Premier League with Liverpool has shown why he has all of the makings to be one of the world's best players for many years.

While the Liverpool star has been on the receiving end of controversy after his diving antics against Crystal Palace, it's unsurprising that former Manchester United boss José Mourinho recently came forward to say that he was not responsible for selling Salah during his time at Chelsea.

After all, the 26-year-old Egypt international has been in scintillating form at Anfield, picking up the Premier League Golden Boot in his first season at the club.

So, one Twitter user has posted side-by-side comparisons of Salah's two seasons in the Premier League at Liverpool with four Premier League greats: Cristiano Ronaldo, Thierry Henry, Wayne Rooney and Sergio Agüero.

It's worth remembering, as the user pointed out, that the Liverpool ace has 15 matches left to play this season.

So, here's a quick breakdown of Salah's stats over the course of two seasons so far (and all of the data comes from the Premier League's official website, by the way):

Full credit to Salah so far. He's held himself nicely against Henry and Ronaldo's stats, not to mention that he beat Rooney in almost all categories.

  • Appearances: 59 / Appearances: 56
  • Goals: 48 / Goals: 43
