Ranking Mohamed Salah & Liverpool’s all-time top scorers

When it comes to the Reds’ all-time most effective front men, where does the Egypt great rank?

#10 Mohamad Salah

Salah moved into Liverpool’s top ten earlier this season, scoring in a 3-3 draw away at Brentford for the Reds.

He now has 131 goals in all competitions for the Merseyside giants, however, he’s maintained his goalscoring form since then and seems certain to break into the top nine before the end of the season.

#9 Harry Chambers

Forward was a key member of the Reds’ teams that won consecutive league titles in 1922 and 1923.

Due to the outbreak of World War One, he was only able to make his debut four years after registering for Liverpool, and he would have scored many more than his 151 goals if it hadn’t been for the battle.

#8 Michael Owen

Owen, a one-time wunderkind, spent seven seasons at Anfield after bursting into the scene in the 1997-98 season.

Until transferring to Real Madrid in 2004, he terrorized Premier League defenses on a continuous basis, hamstrings allowing.

He returned to the Premier League with Newcastle United, then Manchester United, and Stoke City, but he never regained the form that saw him score 158 goals for Liverpool.

#7 Kenny Dalglish

The cunning striker, arguably Liverpool’s greatest ever icon, served the club with distinction both as a player and as a manager.

During his time with the Reds, he scored 172 goals, which placed him sixth in the overall rankings, and he won six league crowns and three European Cups.

Regarded to this day, Dalglish is known as ‘King Kenny’ at Anfield.

#6 Robbie Fowler

Fowler, a force of nature for Liverpool in the mid-90s, was a star of the Premier League’s early years and is still the division’s seventh-highest goalscorer.

His goal-scoring prowess earned him the moniker God during his first spell with the Reds, which lasted from 1993 until 2001.

He scored 183 goals throughout his tenure on Merseyside

#5 Steven Gerald

Gerrard, a 17-year veteran of Liverpool’s first team, scored an incredible 186 goals from midfield, putting him among the Premier League’s all-time leading scorers.

#4 Billy Liddell

During his 23-year stint with the Reds, Wideman Liddell was so important to the team’s cause in the 1940s and 1950s that the team was dubbed ‘Liddellpool.’

Despite being predominantly recognized as a left-winger, he led Liverpool in scoring for eight consecutive seasons in the 1950s and was a league champion in 1947.

Salah will have his work cut out for him if he wants to match Liddell’s 228 goals.

Although he failed to bring the Premier League championship back to Anfield, his efforts to the Champions League success in 2005 and the FA Cup triumph in 2006 will be remembered.

#3 Gordon Hodgson

South African striker who receives far less credit than he deserves for his spectacular goalscoring for Liverpool.

He’s fourth in the all-time Football League goalscoring records, and he’s represented both his nation and England’s Three Lions during stints with Aston Villa and Leeds United.

With 241 goals, he is the third most scorer for Liverpool.

#2 Roger Hunt

Sir Roger was a skilled striker who scored more league goals for Liverpool than any other player. He died on September 27, 2021.

With the Reds, he won two league titles and played in all six of England’s World Cup games in 1966, on route to their first triumph.

For the Merseysiders, Hunt scored 285 goals in all competitions.

#1 Ian Rush

Rush, who scored a total of 346 goals for Liverpool over two spells on Merseyside, is at the top of the list.

After joining from Chester City in 1980, he won four league titles in his first season, and then added another after returning from a brief and unhappy time with Juventus in Italy.

Despite Salah’s prolific goal-scoring, it is doubtful that he will ever challenge Rush for the top place.
