It seems that Liverpool has found their new Luis Suarez. Mohamed Salah is already on the way to become the Reds’ best goalscorer since the Uruguay international left after his 2 goals this weekend against West Ham (1-4).
The Egyptian winger returned to England a completely different player after playing with Chelsea in 2015. He scored two goals in 13 appearances for the Blues but in just three months at Liverpool he scored 12. Suarez has scored 31 goals in 2013-14 and no one has scored more than 14 in a season since.
He has scored more goals after 17 games than Suarez and Fernando Torres had at the same stage of their Liverpool careers, despite not playing as an out-and-out striker unlike those two.
Liverpool’s top scorers since Suarez left in 2014 :
2016-17 : Philippe Coutinho 14
2016-17 : Sadio Mane 13
2015-16 : Daniel Sturridge 13
2014-15 : Steven Gerrard 13
2017-18 : Mohamed Salah 12
2016-17 : Roberto Firmino 12
2015-16 : Philippe Coutinho 12
