Egyptian football star Mohamed Salah has outclassed Didier Drogba in a very select ranking, after a triple assist on Monday in Liverpool’s victory against Leicester (3-0) in the Premier League.
The Egyptian striker netted a hat-trick on Monday for the Reds’ 3-0 win over Leicester to close the 36th Premier League matchday. In a game at King Power Stadium, the winger made a cross from outside the area for Curtis Jones who found the opposite side netting for the opener (1-0, 33rd).
Three minutes later, the duo put back with a Salah served by Cody Gakpo who found Curtis for a second goal of (36th).
Finally, on a free kick, the Pharaoh delivered a malicious heel for Trent Alexander-Arnold who then lodged an unstoppable strike in the corner of Daniel Iversen (3-0, 71st).
An XXL performance for Salah who offers his eighth, ninth and tenth assists of the season in the league. Enough to allow him to become the second best African passer in the history of the Premier League with 57 assists.
The 30-year-old player overtakes Didier Drogba who stopped at 56 assists during his glorious time at Chelsea FC. Only the Algerian striker of Manchester City, Riyad Mahrez, does better with 61 caviars delivered. He had himself dethroned Drogba in early April.
