Liverpool top scorers against Big Six: Salah extends laughable lead with closest current teammate 29 behind

Matt Stead

Diogo Jota has as many Premier League goals against fellow Big Six teams for Liverpool as Steven Gerrard and Luis Suarez, with only a handful ahead of him.

From the slew of predictable leading names to single-goal stalwarts such as Mario Balotelli, Lazar Markovic and Jonjo Shelvey, here is every player to have scored for Liverpool in Premier League matches against Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester City, Manchester United and Tottenham since the start of the 2010/11 season – the first in which they comprised the top six.

We have even broken it down into goals against each opponent before confirming the overall totals. These numbers are accurate as of the last Liverpool game versus a Big Six side (4-2 v Tottenham on May 5, 2024).
