Salah targets Champions League over individual glory

Share

Mohamed Salah has been an instant hit at Anfield this season, scoring an incredible 40 goals in all competitions.

The 25-year-old has scored 30 goals in 32 league appearances for Liverpool in his debut season at the club and is a favourite to win the Professional Footballers' Association Player of the Year award.

He also ranks third in the list of the most prolific players in a single season in the history of the Liverpool team, scoring 40 goals in various tournaments.

From an advanced position on the right, Henderson helped the Reds seize a seventh-minute lead as Mane scored his 17th goal in all competitions, and his eighth in his last 11 matches.

Drogba achieved the record by scoring 29 goals in the 2009-10 season to help Chelsea to a treble, and it was equalled a fortnight ago after Salah got the victor against Crystal Palace.

A less heralded aspect of the England midfielder's repertoire was also significant as he provided the assist for Mane's opening goal. I can not lie - it is in my mind.

However, with four games to go in the Premier League, and at least two (maybe three) games in the Champions League to play, Salah is closing down on a long standing goalscoring record. Victory for Liverpool was another blow to Chelsea's hopes of Champions League football next season.

"You can see with the team everyone tries to pass the ball to me to help me". I don't care about the rest. I'm also sure Tottenham's players try to help Harry Kane and also Manchester City's try to help Sergio Aguero'.

"Thirty one years ago since Ian Rush".

Because of the nature of his unflashy role in Liverpool's engine room, supporters have questioned whether Henderson deserves a regular place in manager Klopp's starting line-up. "You have to be insane to sell a player like that, or you need a lot of money". "All these things we sorted step by step, and the boys enjoy the game obviously".
