Man Utd's Cristiano Ronaldo and Liverpool's Mohamed Salah

Mohamed Salah has developed into one of the best players in the world at Liverpool, but how does his Premier League record compare to an all-time great – Manchester United‘s Cristiano Ronaldo?

After struggling to make an impact at Chelsea, Salah returned to England in 2017 and won the Golden Boot award in his first two seasons at Anfield before lifting the Premier League in 2019-20, while he looks like reaching new heights with some scintillating form to kick off 2021-22.

Meanwhile, Cristiano Ronaldo secured his status as a Premier League legend long before he went and set new records at Real Madrid and Juventus, but now he’s back at Manchester United and banging in the goals for them once again.
