But the Egyptian is also on course to join elite company by reaching another milestone.
With 46 PL goals for the Reds, to add to the two he scored during his spell at Chelsea, Salah is only two short of his half-century.
Should he reach that mark by scoring twice against Crystal Palace on his 72nd PL appearance on Saturday, he would become the joint fourth-fastest player to do so in the history of the competition.
The other player to reach 50 goals in 72 outings was Fernando Torres, who played for the same two PL clubs as Salah, reaching his half-ton with Liverpool's stoppage-time winner at Aston Villa on 29 December 2009.

If Salah does reach the milestone, he will become the first Egyptian to do so and only the eighth African overall.
