Mohamed Salah becomes the most lethal left footer in Premier League history

Salah scored Liverpool's second in a 4-1 victory over West Ham today making it 20 left-footed goals for the season

West Ham tried their best but it is almost impossible to stop Liverpool’s front three at Anfield.

Emre Can opened the scoring before Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane all joined in the fun.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain stumbled his way through midfield to conjure up a brilliant assist for Salah to slot home on his left foot.

Liverpool should get insurance on that left foot

Liverpool should get insurance on that left foot

It was the Egyptian’s 22 second league goal of the season putting him one behind Harry Kane in the golden boot race.

But amazingly it was Salah’s 20th goal this year scored with his left foot.

That is the most scored with a left foot in a single season in Premier League history.

Honk if you’ve got the sweetest left foot in world football

Absolutely incredible numbers from Liverpool’s flyer and Egypt’ national hero.

It’s been said before but every time you hear that Liverpool signed Salah from Roma in the summer for a snip at just £35million, it confirms that he is without doubt the signing of the season.

Jurgen Klopp sets up Liverpool’s attack in such a way that plays perfectly to the attributes of his front three and Salah has been the main beneficiary.

But, this stat lays out a blueprint for how to stop Salah for the rest of the season.

Never show him onto his left foot.

Unfortunately as good as Salah is he will undoubtedly punish you with his right.

Liverpool are flying right now, they became the first British side to score five goals in an away leg of a Champions League knockout game when they thumped Porto 5-0 last week, and they moved up to second in the Premier League with this win.

Just the 15 points behind Man City now.
