Salah now shares the record of 31 goals in a 38-game season with Alan Shearer (Blackburn Rovers, 1995-96), Cristiano Ronaldo (Manchester United, 2007-08) and Luis Suarez (Liverpool, 2013-14).

To date Salah has found the target 31 times in 35 domestic outings and has already been named the PFA and FWA Player of the Year.

Dejan Lovren made it 2-0 before Dominic Solanke and Andrew Robertson netted their first goals for the club.

For sure, we worked two years and worked very hard to try to build something, to create a base. We have had many more good games than we played last season, some of them outstandingly good performances. "That wasn't because of the Chelsea game, it was all the other games; Tottenham and Everton at home when we dropped points". But the Italian, speaking before what is his likely to be his last Premier League game with the Blues, said: "You must know that there is this possibility, because you play in a strong league".

"It's, for us, the next step and I am really, really happy and really proud of the boys". Having secured their Premier League status for next season, they don't need anything from the game.

Arrangements are yet to be confirmed, but Klopp believes the trip is much needed for his injury-hit squad after a demanding campaign. We still have two days and that should help us.

Jack Straw and Sir Mark Allen have denied any wrong-doing. "Neither of you should have been treated in this way", the letter said. Mr Wright said that the "unacceptable practices of some of our worldwide partners should have been realised sooner".

"You want to be really focused", he added. For us it is good.

"But what he is, in his mind he is a real goal-getter and that's cool".

A new book from Football Leaks has brought to light a specific clause in his contract which saw Salah claim a whopping £2.5 million bonus when he managed to reach 35 goals and assists combined, a feat which the 25-year-old accomplished all the way back in February.

Brighton boss Chris Hughton says ensuring Premier League survival has to be their primary goal once more come the start of next season.

Liverpool face Real Madrid in the Champions League final in Kiev on May 26, but can rest at ease that a return to the competition is not dependent on beating the Spanish giants. "It will be exciting".
