Salah Or Drogba? Which African Forward In The Premier League Would You Choose by Ahmad62(m): 9:44pm On Oct 29, 2021
Liverpool star Mohamed Salah has become the highest-scoring African player in Premier League history after a phenomenal hat-trick against Manchester United.


The Egyptian was in scintillating form once again as the Reds ran riot at Old Trafford, scoring for the 10th consecutive league game and his 15th goal in just 12 games (in all competitions) this season.

The 29-year-old first set up Naby Keita for the opening goal and played a role in the build-up to Diogo Jota's strike for the second.

With his treble, it means Salah has now scored 107 goals in the top flight, helping him surpass retired Chelsea legend Didier Drogba on 104.

What is more remarkable is that Drogba needed 254 games to rack up his goals total with eight seasons spent in the Premier League.

Meanwhile, Salah has featured in only 167 games, with 154 for Liverpool and 13 at Chelsea which produced only two goals.

There remains a chance his Liverpool team-mate Sadio Mane could join him at the summit, with the Senegalese seven goals back on 100.

But Salah's incredible form, which has seen him net in every game this season aside from the 2-0 win over Burnley, would surely protect his lead for now over Mane.

Salah has already broken several records this season, becoming the quickest player to reach 100 Premier League goals for Liverpool earlier this season.

Drogba rules. Don't compare! The other day on top radio FM, one presenter was saying that the British referred to Mo Salah as an African. He went further to say No that, is Salah really an African? Claiming Salah is from Egypt so he is a white man. I was just laughing because what he said doesn't make brain to me. Salah is an African. this white people don't just like Africans because Egypt is located in Afeica. generally. I don't really know what's thier problem with Africans and black people. That is also what the Brazilians are doing where they introduced whitening policy in which they told all the elite blacks to get married to white people so that their children will get white color and the process will continue until the skins of generations to come will be all white. If you are very observant you will notice that most popular Brazilian footballers who are blacks end up marrying white gwomen especially the blond ones all in the name of whitening policy. Like Neymar he is not a black man

Didier is KING any time anywhere, you can't even compare. It goes way beyond the pitch.

It is disrespectful to compare Drogba with Salah, even Salah will not try it. Drogba shows up when you need him, Salah disappears when you need him the most. He may be better in stats, but the ultimate big game player remains king DD, and that's what wins you trophies.

You can't even find Salah on a list of top 20 big game players.

Would have said Drogba but considering the stats, Salah has upper hand.
Overall they are both exceptionally good players in their own rights.
OP, hope you have not started another round of Ronaldo vs Messi GOAT type of arguments.

For the legendary status I will pick Drogba. When Salah retires, we will now be able to make a proper comparison. And I wonder why we forget Eto alot. These 3 guys are argurably the best we have produced in Africa in recent time.

Drogba

He did more defensively than Salah

Drogba is a big moment player, Salah disappears on big occasion for club n country

Singlehandedly took Ivory coast to their first ever World cup

Drogba work rate is higher
