Salah has the best minutes-per-goal ratio in the Premier League

Mohamed Salah is flying. The Egyptian striker has without a doubt adapted to his new Merseyside surroundings, a fact proved through his goal statistics. Currently, he is the player with the best minutes-per-goal ratio in the Premier League.

Liverpool fans can't quite believe Salah's impressive performances in his first season back in England after a short stint at Chelsea in 2014-15. Even Jurgen Klopp and his team-mates have been amazed by the Egyptian's attitude. 

The 'Reds' signed the forward from Roma for a fee of €40m, a remarkably great piece of business given his outstanding contributions so far. He has scored 17 goals in 21 league games, allowing him to secure the best ratio.

The 25-year-old scores every 94 minutes and is a comfortable 4.9 minutes ahead of second-placed Harry Kane who broke Terry Sheringham's record to become Tottenham's leading Premier League goalscorer on Saturday. 

Given the departure of key-man Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona this transfer window, the Merseyside club will be relying even more on his performances with Klopp's side fighting for automatic Champions League qualification.
