Premier League top scorer: Liverpool's Mohamed Salah tops chart after 25 matches

- Premier League top scorer after 25 matches is Liverpool star Mohamed Salah

- The Egyptian has scored 16 goals after 24 matches with the Reds playing West Ham United on Monday night

- Aubameyang, Aguero, Kane and Hazard complete the top five stars on the list of the highest goals scorers chart

Mohamed Salah will have a chance to increase his goal tally on Monday night when Liverpool travel to the London Stadium for their Premier League battle against West Ham United.

The Egyptian goal machine is currently topping the goals scorer chart for this season's Golden Boot race after netting 16 goals in his side's last 24 matches in the topflight.

He scored twice in the Reds 4-3 home win against Crystal Palace but was unable to find the back of the net when Leicester City came visiting on January 30, 2019 as they were held to 1-1 draw.

Meanwhile, whenever Salah is not scoring, he is assisting others to find the back of the net as the former Chelsea and AS Roma star has created seven assists in the EPL this campaign.

Only Hazard has more assist (10) than the Egyptian who has been on fire for the Anfield side since he arrived in the summer of 2017.

However, the Reds striker cannot rest on his oars at this points with other forwards keenly contesting for the prestigious prize for the highest goals scorer of the season.

Arsenal and Gabon star Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is closely behind Salah on the scorers chart with 15 goals and 4 assists for the Gunners.

Despite joining the north Londoners midway into the 2018-18 season, the former Dortmund attacker scored 10 goals and 4 assists in Arsene Wenger's last season in charge of the club.

Though, the Emirates Stadium side have slipped to sixth on the log, the Gabonese has been in top form scoring at every opportunity for Unai Emery's side.

Having scored a hatrick in Manchester City's 3-1 win over Arsenal in their super Sunday clash at the Etihad, Sergio Aguero jumps to third on the log with 14 goals and 6 assists.

The Argentine has been able to pull up that number despite missing four matches and starting some others on the bench this campaign.
