Liverpool star Mohamed Salah scored his 50th Premier League goal to inspire a 4-3 win over Crystal Palace on Saturday.

Salah is the joint-fourth quickest player to reach the landmark in the history of the competition.

Jurgen Klopp’s side were behind at half-time on Salah’s 72nd Premier League appearance before he prodded home number 49 on the volley to make it 1-1.

And the Egypt international capitalised upon an error from Palace goalkeeper Julian Speroni to put Liverpool 3-2 ahead 15 minutes from time. Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane were also on target.

Andy Cole has the quickest to a Premier League half-century, reaching the landmark after 65 appearances – one fewer than Alan Shearer and three better than another Manchester United hero, Ruud van Nistelrooy.

Salah is the joint-fasted Liverpool player to 50, level with Fernando Torres, while ex-Anfield favourite Luis Suarez now rounds out the top 10.
