Mohamed Salah could break Premier League goal scoring record this season

All hail the Egyptian King

And his latest virtuoso display against Roma in the Champions League semi-finals – producing two goals and two assists – saw him reach a stunning fantasy football milestone.

Salah was competing with Harry Kane to finish as Dream Team top points scorer for some time but that now seems a foregone conclusion.

That’s after his 22-point haul against the Italians saw him surpass the 400-point mark – with at least another four fixtures to play.

Salah’s remarkable consistency means he’s only the second player in Dream Team history to reach 400 points after Cristiano Ronaldo.

Ronaldo, however, is surely out of sight and will almost never be caught after he racked up an astonishing 477 points in the 2007/08 season.

That campaign Ronaldo inspired Man United to a Premier League and Champions League double, including a towering header in the final against Chelsea.

Salah still has European ambitions of his own with Liverpool very much in the driving seat in their semi-final.

But he would need to average around 15 points a game for the remainder of the season to catch Ronaldo’s sensational score.

Could he surpass Ronaldo?

Regardless of whether he catches him the Reds’ forward has produced a jaw-dropping season.

He’s now over 50 points ahead of Kane in second whilst Sergio Aguero is a distant third with 277.

And Salah’s latest massive haul also ensured he surpassed former team-mate Philippe Coutinho as the most consistent player this season with an average of 8.6 points per game.
