You forgot Drogba went to AFCON in the 2009/2010 season and still bagged 29 EPL goals in 32 appearances while Salah scored 32 in 36 games.

Salah's 32 EPL goals (44 total) also amounted to nothing, it didn't spur Liverpool to any Trophy.
At least Sallah still eventually won both the EPL and Champions league with Liverpool. That 29 goals was the only impressive season for Drogba goal-wise but still didn't break the EPL record Sallah broke. In 9 seasons, a full striker Drogba scored more than 20 EPL in just 1 season and won golden boot twice in 9 seasons. There were seasons he scored as poor as 4, 10, 11 EPL goals. In contrast to Sallah, his poorest season he had 19 EPL goals in 34 games, won golden boot twice in just 4 seasons and even lost out last season by a single goal to Harry Kane.This is someone who is a winger o. We all love Drogba but as it stands, Sallah is better abeg.

I will pick drogba simply because he played under a defensive minded Chelsea.Sometimes being the only one upfront and bullying his way through to goal.
Salah is phenomenal no doubt but this same Salah failed under a "defensive" Chelsea due to his physical attributes.

All these people shouting drogba is a big moment player, I just dey laugh. Salah na wetin? Small occasion player abi? Make Una no dey cap rubbish. Salah is better than drogba in everything like this. Salah will be an EPL legend no doubt. If he keeps up this form throughout this season and Liverpool wins either the EPL or champions League, then he will be the outright choice for the ballon d'Or.

There's a reason they call Drogba Mr. FA CUP, just ask Arsenal's fans, furthermore when the chips are down, the man either scores or makes play in finals, guess team success also plays a major role in the conversation. Salah would need at least 2-3 seasons more of top performances to be mentioned in the same breath as Drogba or Shearer when it comes to forwards but as a winger, he is simply the best next to Messi.

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.

They are two great player's however, they belong to two different eras, quantifying the effectiveness of the players based on different era they played in is somewhat difficult to do at the moment. Will Messi standout playing in the pele era? Will Salah be as effective playing in the Drogba era I'm not certain.

Drogba played with a scoring midfielder, Lampard who competed with him, scored 20 goals per season for some time and took most of the penalty kicks. Henderson & keita don't even score 10 goals a season combined as they depend on Salah and Mane for goals.

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.

I have watched both players and will not make such nonsense comparison.

Salah is currently bossing it... Drogba did and was excellent in his time.

Compare Salah with his contemporaries... Drogba played in a different era!!!

My stand is succinct, intelligent, and unwavering!!! Bye!!! cool
Nope, your stand is foolish and it lack good analysis. The stats already show you what you need to now, so disputing the fact on ground because of your sentiment, is not a smart move but rather foolish one grin

Drogba didnt have Mane and Firminho playing at his sides.
But he still delivered.
Drogba slightly edges it.

It's actually a team achievement and Egypt don't exactly ply the better players in the continent now.

But Salah's individual contributions in the premier League dwarfs Drogba's in fewer games. Salah also has more in another relevant league.
