Mohamed Salah aiming for 120-year record in Merseyside derby

Mohamed Salah will break a Liverpool record that has stood for 120 years if he nets twice in Sunday’s Merseyside derby.

If selected at Anfield, the Egyptian will make his 50th Premier League for the Reds.

His previous 49 top-flight games have seen him score 39 times – meaning a goal versus Everton would see him equal the club record of 40 goals in a player’s first 50 league matches, set by George Allan in 1898, while a brace would take him above Allan.

Salah played against Everton once last season, scoring a brilliant individual effort that later won the FIFA Puskas Award in a 1-1 draw at Anfield.
