Liverpool star Mohamed Salah has moved past a trio of Premier League legends in scoring.

Salah went ahead of Alan Shearer (1995-96), Cristiano Ronaldo (2007-08) and Luis Suarez (2013-14) by scoring his 32nd goal of the campaign on Sunday, breaking the league record in a 38-match season.

Salah, who was named the Premier League Player of the Season on Sunday, scored the opener of Liverpool's encounter with Brighton & Hove Albion with the historic goal coming in the 26th minute.

Dominic Solanke sent a clever pass into the box to Salah who fired a low shot into the bottom corner of the net.

Along with becoming the highest scorer in a single season, Salah also broke Robin van Persie's record for goals inside the box, as the Liverpool forward scored his 29th from inside the penalty area.

With the goal against Brighton on Sunday, Manchester United and Swansea City are now the only Premier League clubs that have not allowed a goal from the Egyptian international during the 2017-18 season.

Overall, Salah has scored 44 goals in all competitions this season, which leaves him just three short of Ian Rush's Liverpool record that was set during 1983-84.
