Two years ago on this date, Mohamed Salah scored an absolute peach of a goal against Chelsea. The Egyptian King came back to haunt his former club in a match that put Salah back on top of the Premier League goal scorers with 19 goals. 

Many opposition supporters believed that Mohamed Salah would be nothing more than a one season wonder but this goal solidified that he was here to stay in the world's elite. 

This goal was Mohamed Salah's first goal from outside of the box since January of 2018 against Manchester City.
