Not for me.

Thierry Henry for me, and he did it consistently for a number of years.
Didier Drogba.
Fernando Torres (Liverpool one)

Salah isnt ahead of them yet imo, needs to repeat his success.

Heck of a player though.

Swiss league record.
47 games 9 goals

Gianni Alioski
50 games 19 goals 8-)

Fantastic player. I was surprised at how little time Chelsea gave him. Harry Kewell was better though.
I was there when Batty scored

He's obviously moved on and got a lot better since then.

I agree about the consistency though - he needs to prove himself over time.
He can't be the greatest for a single season.

He's a very exciting player.

If he repeats it over several seasons then he can be considered with the likes of Henry, Drogba and Shearer etc.

Goes to show what giving players chance to develop can do for you ;-)

So while Messi is the Argentinian Alioski, Salah hasn't reached that level yet :)

Been brilliant for Liverpool (and others) by all accounts. Always tough to pick the best ever though,

He was pants at Chelsea. Nobody was better than Thierry Henry, as Leeds fans should well remember.

No... He doesn't play for us, and I haven't heard his name mentioned as scoring against us, so guess he must be premier player... I have no interest in the premiership, and have not watched a match in that league since our demise..... ever...
