Better than Hazard, more valuable than Neymar and quicker than Mane - the rise and rise of Mohamed Salah at Liverpool

In the space of six months, Mohamed Salah has become a phenomenon at Liverpool.
His goal at Bournemouth was his 14th in the Premier League, and his 20th in all competitions.

Here are 20 statistics for the Reds’ 20-goal man.

Salah has joined Daniel Sturridge as the second-fastest Liverpool player to reach 20 goals, doing so in just 26 games. Only George Allan has done so quicker.
Salah also becomes the first Liverpool player to get 20 goals before Christmas since Ian Rush in 1986/87.
Having hit 20 on December 17, his haul becomes the fourth-quickest by date. Ian Rush and Roger Hunt (x2) managed it earlier, with Rush’s 20th coming on November 8, 1986.
With his goal against Bournemouth, Salah has now scored more for Liverpool this season than he did for Roma in the whole of last season.
The Egyptian’s 20th goal for the Reds means he’s moved level with Sadio Mane in terms of Anfield goals - in 20 games fewer.
He also joins Alan Kennedy in the 20-goal club, although it took the left back 308 games to reach that milestone. He did, however, score the winner in the 1981 European Cup final.
Salah has reached the 20-goal milestone at Liverpool - something Eden Hazard has not managed to do at Chelsea.
With 20 goals for Liverpool, Salah has already matched his tally during his time at FC Basel - in 53 games fewer.

The forward notched on 44 minutes at the Vitality Stadium - the part of the game he strikes most. That was the sixth time he’s scored in the last 15 minutes of the first half.
His efforts have seen him rise to the top in Fantasy land, too. With 135 points, Salah is 22 points clear of nearest rival Kevin de Bruyne in Fantasy Premier League.
Salah has scored 20 goals this season, but 11 different players have laid on assists for him. Sadio Mane (3) leads the way, with Roberto Firmino, Philippe Coutinho and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain all setting up two. The other players who have registered an assist for Salah are: Trent Alexander-Arnold, Emre Can, Joe Gomez, Jordan Henderson, James Milner, Alberto Moreno and Gini Wijnaldum.
No player has scored more goals in English football this season, with Tottenham’s Harry Kane and Jack Marriot, of Peterborough, next on 18.

He scored just two goals for Chelsea, and they came against sides he’s found the net against already for Liverpool - Arsenal and Stoke City.
Salah is scoring a goal, on average, every 1.3 games for Liverpool. If he plays 50 games this season and keeps up this scoring rate, he’ll finish the campaign with 38.

In terms of league goals, Salah (14) has scored as many as Lionel Messi this season. Only four players in Europe’s top five leagues have more - two of whom were signed by Jurgen Klopp at Dortmund (Robert Lewandowski and Ciro Immobile).
Despite his goalscoring exploits, Salah is also amongst the most creative in the Premier League. With 20 key passes, he is in the league’s top 20 - with only Roberto Firmino above him at Liverpool.

At £36.9million, Salah has already repaid his transfer fee with each goal worth £1.85million. That is much better value than Alvaro Morata (£5.8million per goal), Alexandre Lacazette (£6.6million per goal) and, of course, Neymar (£11.5million per goal).
Despite scoring his 14th league goal for Liverpool, two ahead of nearest rival Harry Kane, he remains second favourite to be Premier League top goalscorer (7/2).
He is also as big as 80/1 to be the World Cup’s top goalscorer for Egypt, having notched 32 goals in just 56 games.
