Tottenham's Harry Kane, the Golden Boot runner-up behind Salah, exceeded his weighty xG of 24.83 by netting 30 goals for Spurs (+5.17).

Salah secured the Premier League Golden Boot for 2017-2018 after finishing the season with 32 goals of his 36 appearances. The final will surely be a thriller as Los Blancos boasts of attacking style of play, while the other - the English side - has a strong defensive line.

Despite winning the competition five times, Liverpool have been starved of success among Europe's elite since their last victory in Istanbul 13 years ago.

Georgino Wijnaldum believes Liverpool's players can claim legendary status with a Champions League final win.

Atletico Madrid take on Marseille in Lyon on Wednesday 16 May for the Europa Cup final, while the Champions League final takes place on Saturday 26 May between Liverpool and Real Madrid.

"But what he is, in his mind he is a real goal-getter and that's cool".

"He told me that he is happy with what I am doing".

"Any player wants to do it on a consistent basis and that's what defines a good player from a great player".

'You can put yourself there with legends that won the Champions League.

Who do you think will win the 2017/2018 EPL?

"Even before the game [against Brighton], no one talked about that game". "I like him a lot".

"This is their third final in three years so that says a lot about their team", added Wijnaldum. We have had many more good games than we played last season, some of them outstandingly good performances. "Credit to him and long may it continue for us".

With just 90 minutes and the formidable foe of a Ronaldo-led Real Madrid standing between Salah and the Champions League, the "Egyptian King" would now surely swap all his individual accolades for a shot at immortality in the red of Liverpool. His eye for a pass, first touch and intelligence set him apart from many speedy wide players of his type, and the rawness to his game is evaporating all the time.
