Salah breaks Fowlers record as the highest left-footed top scorer in history

Mohamed Salah

Liverpool forward Mohammed Salah has surpassed Fowler’s record as the player with the most left-footed goals during their rampage on Leeds United last night.

The Egyptian scored a brace in the 39th and 64th minutes respectively with his left foot during their 6-1 victory at Elland Road.

With the second goal in Liverpool’s 6-1 victory at Leeds United, Mohamed Salah set a Premier League record.

The strike was the Egyptian’s 134th in the competition, and it was his 106th with his left foot.

It overtook the 105 scored by another Liverpool legend, Robbie Fowler, who coincidentally also featured for Salah’s opponents, Leeds.

He extended his lead over Fowler to two in the second half at Elland Road with a calm finish from a superb team goal to make it 107 goals with his left foot.

Of his other 28 goals, Salah has scored 21 with his right foot and a further seven with his head.
