Salah, Toure, Drogba: The 20 greatest African players in Premier League history ranked
Mohamed Salah has been absolutely incredible since signing for Liverpool in 2017.
The Egyptian forward has scored a quite ridiculous 102 goals in 153 English top flight games.
He hit his century earlier this season, becoming the fifth quickest player to hit that landmark.
Salah has two Premier League Golden Boots to his name and his goals helped Liverpool end their long wait for a league title in 2020.
The Liverpool star has started the 2021/22 season on fire, notching seven times in eight leagues games.
He's arguably the best player in the world right now.
But where does he rank among the greatest African players in Premier League history?
