A recent thread on Twitter has shown how Liverpool's Mo Salah must be considered as one of the greatest forwards in Premier League history.
The tweets from @PassLikeThiago show a huge variety of records that he has held or broken since he joined Liverpool in 2017.
In his first season, Salah "broke the record for the most goals scored in a single 38 game Premier league season" which was previously held by Luis Suarez, Cristiano Ronaldo and Alan Shearer.

The records that he is set during his four years at Liverpool have seemed relentless as he has soared to such great heights, winning the Premier League and Champions League.
He became the first African football player to score over 30 goals in a Premier League season where he even scored entire teams in the league including West Brom, Swansea City and Huddersfield Town.

The thread received a lot of a fan reaction as many suggested that Salah does not receive the recognition that he deserves as one of the greatest forwards in world football and Premier League history.
Salah has seemingly started the Premier League season as well as always after scoring a goal and getting two assists as Liverpool look to challenge for the title this season.
