The Reds are one of the most legendary clubs in the English league.

Steven Gerrard's incredible goal against Olympiacos in 2004 must go down among the best goals ever scored by a Red in Liverpool FC's glorious history. Where else does Stevie G rank among Liverpool's all-time top goal scorers, though?

The Reds shirt has been worn by some of the best forwards in football history, and numerous additional Liverpool players have contributed goals along the way. Who are the best, though?

10. Daniel Sturridge - 50

In January 2013, he moved to Liverpool, where he and Luis Suárez became the 'SAS' offensive duo. In the 2013–14 league season, Liverpool tallied more than 100 goals, with 21 of those goals coming from Sturridge.

H was with the elite group of Liverpool's Premier League half-centurions notwithstanding all of his injury problems. The former England international had his greatest season with the Reds in 2013–14, scoring 21 goals in 29 games as Brendan Rodgers' team utterly disintegrated in their title defence.

9. Dirk Kuyt – 51

Despite being a walking advertisement for "the kind of players fans love" due to his extraordinary work ethic, Kuyt nonetheless scored his fair share of goals throughout his six years at Liverpool.

The hardworking Dutchman, who never scored more than 13 goals in a season, did reach double figures in three different seasons and played in all 38 games when Rafael Benitez's Reds finished second in the league in 2008–09.

8. Fernando Torres – 65

After developing into one of the most sought-after young attackers in Europe while playing for Atletico Madrid, Torres made his highly publicised move to Anfield in the summer of 2007.

Yet "El Nino" more than lived up to the promise, scoring 65 Premier League goals in 102 games overall and 24 in his debut season with the Reds, before an acrimonious transfer to Chelsea in January 2011 that didn't work out too well.

7. Luis Suarez – 69

In his first single season after joining Liverpool, Suárez won the League Cup. He tied the Premier League record for goals scored in a season (38 games) in 2014, and he also took home his maiden European Golden Shoe.

Suarez only appeared 110 times for Liverpool in the Premier League, but he made a significant impact on the league. The prodigious Uruguayan, one of just six players to surpass the 30-goal mark in a Premier League season with 38 games, scored 51 of his 69 goals in his final 66 outings, earning him the 2013/14 Golden Boot.

6. Roberto Firmino – 79

Firmino, another unflappable Liverpool forward, passed Suarez last season with a hat-trick in the Reds' 5-0 thrashing of Watford (not many players can manage to be anything but that in Jurgen Klopp's side).

He did so by improving the hat trick he already had over Arsenal in December 2018 and becoming the first Brazilian to accomplish this in the Premier League.

5. Sadio Mané – 90

Mane might never surpass fifth place considering that he's still 28 goals behind the next two players on the list, and has already left Merseyside for Bayern Munich.

The quick Senegal international has scored 100 Premier League goals overall after scoring 21 goals for Southampton. He also shared the Golden Boot during the 2018–19 season with Mohamed Salah and Pierre–Emerick Aubameyang of Arsenal.

4. Michael Owen - 118

He quickly became an established member of the Liverpool junior team and, at the age of 17 years, 143 days, struck on his league debut in May 1997, making him the club's youngest goalscorer.

Owen might have been at the top of our list if it weren't for the persistent hamstring problem that ultimately ended his career. Though ranking third is no small accomplishment, he is still the youngest player to score 100 Premier League goals, accomplishing it in April 2003 at the age of 23 years and 134 days, when the Reds thrashed West Brom 6-0. He actually scored four goals in that game.

3. Steven Gerrard – 120

Only 18 players have had more shots on goal in Premier League history than the lone non-forward in the top 10. He may have scored a substantial portion of his goals through penalties and free kicks.

The Liverpool supporters will always remember their iconic Champions League-winning captain for his goals against Olympiacos and AC Milan, but he also provided them plenty of memories at home, notably a hat-trick on his 400th Premier League game, a 3-0 Merseyside Derby victory over Everton.

2. Robbie Fowler - 128

Fowler, one of the most lethal goal scorers in the nation throughout the 1990s, has now become the second most goals scored for Liverpool. 

Even with Salah's current form, "God" should be able to take in the view for the remainder of the season at the very least. He returned in 2006 and added eight more goals just to be sure.

1. Mohamed Salah – 129

Salah has been one of the best players in the Premier League since the day he signed for Liverpool, and he will go down in history as one of the best wingers to ever grace the English top flight.

On a momentous day at Anfield on Sunday, Liverpool defeated rival Manchester United with their largest victory ever. The 7-0 thrashing halts United's stellar streak of success and ultimate advancement under Erik ten Hag while boosting Liverpool's chances of finishing in the top four of the Premier League.

It also saw Mohamed Salah who scored a brace surpass Michael Owen (128) and Steven Gerrard (120), two former club greats, before breaking Robbie Fowler's previous record of 128 goals (118).
