Salah reaches 40 goals as Liverpool breeze past Bournemouth

It's now April, and with Liverpool in the Champions League semi-finals and a top four place seemingly wrapped up, Salah has cemented his place among the world's best.

He also remains in the running to become the PFA Player of the Year as his battle with Manchester City's Kevin de Bruyne is set to go down to the wire.

But Salah would give up all the baubles and personal recognition if it meant Liverpool triumphed in Kiev on May 26. But even in the end I said it - I try to score every game to help the team.

Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah has insisted that he would happily trade in the personal honours heading his way in exchange for Champions League success. "If you had a choice, then of course the Champions League".

"I didn't see the knock", the German told Liverpool's official website.

Liverpool face Roma in the semi-finals of the Champions League and ex-Reds stopper Bruce Grobbelaar is tipping them to go the whole way. "I don't care about the rest".

In doing so, the Egyptian took his league tally to 30 goals in the season, breaking Drogba's record of 29 which he scored in the 2009/2010 campaign.

Now, unless you've been living under a rock, you will know that Tottenham striker Harry Kane was bafflingly awarded Christian Eriksen's goal against Stoke last weekend, despite replays indicating he got no touch on it whatsoever.

Liverpool welcomed back Jordan Henderson after his midweek suspension and put on an impressive display to the Anfield faithful - completing yet another Premier League double this season.

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.

He added: "It's also very close, it's just seven goals".

"The atmosphere in that first game against Manchester City was the first time I had really seen something like that". He said: "Of course I can not lie - it is in my mind".

- Of players to have hit 10-plus goals in all of their Premier League seasons, only Sergio Aguero (7) and Eric Cantona (5) have done it more often than Sadio Mane (4).
