You know it’s been a good campaign when three of your forwards are at the top of the goalscorers chart for the season.

Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane, and Diogo Jota have now scored a combined 52 goals and all sit in the top five for most goals in the division this season.

But, despite that, the Reds are still not top of the league – and they haven’t even scored the most goals!

Jurgen Klopp’s side recorded an important win over Aston Villa on Tuesday night, as Mane and Joel Matip – who is a less regular scorer for the Merseysiders – found the net to secure the victory.

That leaves them level on points with Manchester City, who have a game in hand, but Liverpool’s inferior goal difference means they still sit second.

The 89 goals scored by the Reds this season is matched by City, despite their top scorer, Raheem Sterling, sitting on just 12.

Pep Guardiola’s side have conceded three less than their title rivals, however, which could be the difference at the top of the table this season.

It means that Liverpool’s forwards will have to continue to find the back of the net if they are to win their second Premier League title this season.

And Salah will be wanting to improve his goal tally, as Heung-Min Son and Cristiano Ronaldo chase him at the top of the scoring charts.

The Tottenham and Manchester United stars are the only non-Liverpool players to score 15 or more goals this season, with Son now just two goals behind Salah.

To add to their goals, Liverpool have three of the top four assisters in the league, which Salah tops again with 13, while Trent Alexander-Arnold (12) and Andrew Robertson (10) are in second and joint-third, respectively.

West Ham’s Jarrod Bowen is the man alongside the Scotsman in third and it’s no surprise the Reds have been linked with a transfer to Anfield in recent months.

Premier League top scorers this season

  1. Mohamed Salah (Liverpool) – 22
  2. Heung-Min Son (Tottenham) – 20
  3. Cristiano Ronaldo (Man United) – 18
  4. Diogo Jota (Liverpool) – 15
  5. Sadio Mane (Liverpool) – 15

Despite Liverpool’s obscene goalscoring and goal creation, they still might not win the league this season.

And you can’t exactly blame the defence, with the Reds owning arguably the best goalkeeper and centre-back in the world.

It takes a lot to stop Guardiola’s Man City!
