Mohamed Salah

Mohamed Salah has scored 17 Premier League goals at Anfield this season

Mohamed Salah won the UEFA Champions League Goal of the Week award for his bold chip goal against Manchester City in the quarter-finals second leg.

Salah scored his 30 goal of the Premier League season after finding the back of the net against Bournemouth this weekend.

With four Premier League games to come and a Champions League semi-final against his former team Roma, Salah will be hopeful of making the season even more special.

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.

However, he returned to the starting lineup after midweek's assault on Manchester City in the Uefa Champions League. "I'm sure he'll keep doing that for the rest of the season".

Asked which he would prefer, the PFA gong or the European Cup, Salah told reporters: "I have no doubt. the Champions League".

The Egyptian is in pole position to with the Premier League Golden Boot, where he now has a five goal lead over Harry Kane, and he is also chasing Champions League glory with Liverpool after the club progressed to the semi-finals.

Salah is the slight favourite over Kevin De Bruyne to win the Player of the Year, while our Monday Verdict also suggested the Egyptian could break Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi's duopoly of the Ballon d'Or this season.

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. "But you can see with the team, everyone tries to pass the ball to me to help me", he said. You feel they want to support you and want to help you to score goals.

"He tried to motivate us like usually and in the end everybody was in the right place at the right time to win every ball".

That goal was the trigger for Bournemouth's kitchen sink which, once dropped into the Liverpool half, gave Jurgen Klopp's men much more room on the counter.

"It is a great feeling, of course it is a great feeling, but in the end I am just happy to score and help the team", he told United Kingdom newspapers.
