Salah joins 30-goal club, breaks Didier Drogba's English Premier League record

The victory rounded off a fine week for Liverpool, who booked a Champions League semi-final against Roma by beating Manchester City 5-1 on aggregate with a second-leg win at the Etihad Stadium on Tuesday.

Mohamed Salah became only the third Liverpool player to score 40 goals in a season in all competitions as they claimed a comfortable 3-0 victory at home to Bournemouth in the Premier League on Saturday.

He added: "I said I would wait to see what happened in Liverpool's Champions League game with Manchester City before I hung my hat on Salah or Kevin De Bruyne for that award".

'If you had a choice, then of course it is the Champions League, ' said Salah.

Although the Egyptian has stolen headlines with his goals, creativity, and general influence on the side, both Firmino and Mane have also been huge contributors to Liverpool's success this season. I don't care about the rest.

The Egypt forward joined Roger Hunt and Ian Rush in the 40 club with a second-half header that added to Sadio Mane's early strike and preceded Roberto Firmino's late goal.

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

Salah's goal, his English Premier League-leading 30th, increased his advantage over Harry Kane in the Golden Boot race while strengthening Liverpool's grip on a top-four finish.

Despite reaching this tally, Salah says he will swap every goal which he has scored this season in return for a Champions League win.

A less heralded aspect of the England midfielder's repertoire was also significant as he provided the assist for Mane's opening goal. "That's really good but we have to carry on, there are a few games to come". But you can see with the team everyone tries to pass the ball to me to help me. You feel they want to support you and want to help you to score goals.

"It's like that but, in the end, we play as a team".

"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.
