Liverpool star Mo Salah wants Champions League to cap memorable first season

The five best players at Anfield in Liverpool’s dominant 3-0 win vs Bournemouth

After they were beaten by arch-rivals Manchester United a week earlier from two goals up when victory would have crowned them kings of England, then knocked out of Europe by Liverpool, some suggested that City were beginning to flag. The important thing is that we know we depend on ourselves. What a number. Wow!

"But you know, you can see [against Bournemouth] with the team everyone tries to pass the ball to me to help me".

They had appealed the Premier League Match Centre's call to hand Christian Eriksen the goal, with Kane arguing the Dane's free-kick had brushed his shoulder, and the overturning of the decision prompted Salah to respond with surprise on social media. "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".

Addressing the matter, a laughing Salah replied: "I don't want to say anything about that!"

Jurgen Klopp named a full-strength starting XI and it quickly became clear that Bournemouth would not improve on their winless record at Anfield.

And of the golden boot?

"If he gets the golden boot it's pretty likely that we are successful, so no problem with that". He's already three goals away from breaking Sir Roger Hunt's goal record in a single season, and even on track to potentially break Ian Rush's record of 47 goals in a single season too.

No matter how much money he would have cost Liverpool no one would have expected him to bag 40 goals this season, that he cost them around £30 million makes it all the more extraordinary.

"Was he 14 when he scored them!?"

"But the finish from Mo was a bit of an unusual one for him and one that maybe took everyone by surprise".

Mohamed Salah insists that he "does not care" about personal accolades as he is instead exclusively focused on helping Liverpool to win the Champions League.

Chelsea kept their faint hopes of Champions League football next season alive by closing to within seven points of Spurs with a stunning eight-minute fightback to deepen Southampton's predicament in the bottom three.

Pitted against Bournemouth for the Matchday 34 clash, the Merseysiders played host to Eddie Howe's side, who were eventually handed a 3-0 beating they will go on to remember for a while to come.

Roberto Firmino then rounded off a ideal afternoon for Liverpool's prolific front three by drilling low past Begovic for a third in stoppage time.
