Salah joined the Reds last summer after the best season of his career, in which he bagged 19 goals and 15 assists in all competitions with Roma.

Liverpool legend, Robbie Fowler has described Mohamed Salah as "phenomenal" following his impressive showings for the club.
In an interview with Spanish newspaper, Marca, Mohamed Salah opened up about his time at Chelsea and his objective of beating Harry Kane to the Premier League's Golden Boot. His incredible performance assisted Liverpool to lock third position in the league table and if continued, they might leave behind Manchester United to secure the second position.
