In the Premier League’s records, Didier Drogba has a record of 104 goals in 254 matches in the Premier League. However, in Liverpool's recent match against Manchester United, Mohammed Salah with 104 goals in 166 appearances added three more goals to his football career to top Didier Drogba’s all time record and become the highest African goalscorer.
This means that Mohammed Salah has currently scored 107 goals in his Premier League’s football career.
Both Didier Drogba and Mohammed Salah are both famous African football players with the former hailing from Ivory Coast and the later hailing from Egypt. This new record from the Egyptian has no doubt solidified his legacy as one of the best football players in the Premier League.
