Salah reaches 40th goal of season as Liverpool crush Bournemouth

Salah reaches 40th goal of season as Liverpool crush Bournemouth

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. If I had a choice between the Champions League and the Golden Boot, then of course it would be the Champions League, no doubt the Champions League.

Salah is only the third Liverpool player to hit the 40-goal mark and the first since Ian Rush in 1986-87.

The 25-year-old has been one of European football's top performers this season and he has been earning huge amounts of praise for his brilliant displays for Jurgen Klopp's men.

Shortly after that decision was announced, Salah tweeted "Wooooooow really?"

The Egyptian has proved a sensation this season, with his goal against Bournemouth at the weekend his 30th Premier League goal - and 40th of a highly-productive campaign so far.

"I don't want to say anything about that!" .

"In the end they said it's his (Kane's) goal so it's finished for me".

Kane was heavily criticised on social media following the Premier League's decision to award Tottenham's second goal against Stoke last week to the England striker.

'I was afraid that Salah might fail at Liverpool, but I think he is ready to jump to the next level. I can not lie - it is in my mind.

"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 the press, according to FourFourTwo.

Pre-match tributes were held on the eve of the 29th anniversary of the Hillsborough disaster, before Liverpool began on the front foot and Salah toed Trent Alexander-Arnold's pass from deep just wide of the right-hand post. I will try my best to score again and help the team.

'We could see how strong he was mentally with the way he handled himself when he didn't play at Chelsea'.

"He's very quick and has really good movement so that makes it more hard".
