Comparing Mo Salah’s stats in 2021-22 to Luis Suarez’s historic 2013-14

Quick Reads
Mohamed Salah of Liverpool celebrates scoring against Watford, October 2021.

Mohamed Salah has enjoyed an excellent first half of the 2021-22 season having scored more goals than any other Premier League player.

Salah, who signed for Liverpool back in 2017, enjoyed an incredible debut campaign for the Reds that culminated in him scoring 32 Premier League goals – a record for a 38-game season.

The Egypt international has consistently banged them in since and, remarkably, has looked set to enjoy his best season yet in a Liverpool shirt.

But how does Salah’s record compare to a former talismanic Liverpool forward? Luis Suarez was equally outstanding during the 2013-14 season, winning the Player of the Season award and almost guiding the club to their first league title in 24 years.

We’ve crunched the numbers to see how Salah’s numbers in 2021-22 compare to Suarez’s figures from the 13-14 campaign.
