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

Salah has enjoyed a remarkable debut campaign at Liverpool, netting his 30th Premier League goal of the season on Saturday evening in Liverpool's comprehensive 3-0 win over Bournemouth.

The Reds avoided a case of "after the Lord Mayor's show" by following up their progression to the Champions League semi-finals earlier in the week with a 3-0 victory over the Cherries at Anfield.

Liverpool would double their lead on 69 minutes, with Mo Salah (of course) netted his 40th goal of the season via a clever header over Begovic after a fine pass from Trent Alexander-Arnold. This was the first time for Salah to be nominated for BBC African Footballer of the Year.

"To win the Champions League is huge for everyone".

It has been a remarkable debut campaign for Salah following his off-season arrival from Serie A side Roma, who Liverpool will face in the Champions League semi-finals - the Egypt worldwide leading the Golden Boot race with 30 Premier League goals ahead of Harry Kane.

"So each goal for me, or for anyone else is to try to help the team". "I'm sure he'll keep doing that for the rest of the season".

'I can not lie - it is in my mind, ' said Salah. I will try my best to score again and help the 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.

His performances have also seen him become favourite to be named PFA Player of the Year in what seems a straight shoot out between him and Manchester City's Kevin de Bruyne.

"Now we still have four games and they have five games so I have to think about my games and we see".

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.

But Salah could finish this season on another high, with the Reds facing his former club Roma in the Champions League semi-final in seven days' time.
