Egypt and Liverpool winger Mohamed Salah broke more records after scoring against Southampton on Sunday to match a 20-year old mark set by a Reds legend.

Salah's goal came at the end of a quick-counter to score his team's second goal making it his 19th left foot goal out of a total of 22 goals in the Premier League this season.

Of the three of Salah’s 22 goals not scored via his left foot, one was a header at Leicester City in September, and two came from his right boot, against Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea.

The Premier League official website announced that he matched Robbie fowler's record of 19 left foot goals in 1994/1995.

The 25-year old winger can easily break the record since he has another 11 matches to play this season.

The Pharaohs player has been in a sensational form since joining Liverpool last summer, scoring 29 goals in 35 matches.

Record-shattering Salah has become the first Liverpool player to score nine goals in his opening 12 league games breaking Fowler's 8-goal record and surpassed Luis Suarez, Fernando Torres and Folwer in becoming the fastest Liverpool player to reach 20 Premier League.

He has also broken a 102 year-old record to become the fastest player to score 25 goals for Liverpool, shattering previous records from the likes of Roger Hunt, Kenny Dalgish and Ian Rush.
