Jurgen Klopp Manager of Liverpool looks on during the warm up prior to the Premier League match between Liverpool and AFC Bournemouth at Anfield

Salah prefers Champions League to Golden Boot

Salah's golden boot duel with Harry Kane took a twist last week when the Tottenham forward was successful with his claim that Christian Eriksen's second goal against Stoke should actually be awarded to him, as it brushed his shoulder.

However, the 25-year-old Egyptian says his priority is the Champions League campaign - and the upcoming semi-final against his former club Roma. "I'm sure he'll keep doing that for the rest of the season".

Salah got onto the end of a Trent Alexander-Arnold cross to double his side's lead in the 69th minute, following Sadio Mane's opener, to become the highest scoring African in a single English top-flight season.

"What a number. Wow!" exclaimed manager Jurgen Klopp on hearing Salah is the first Liverpool player since Ian Rush 31 years ago to score 40 in a season.

But it took nearly 70 minutes for the sensational Salah to get his moment as he rose to head Trent Alexander-Arnold's cross over Cherries keeper Asmir Begovic. It's a great feeling. It's also very close, it's just seven goals.

'I can not lie - it is in my mind, ' said Salah. "But you can see with the team, everyone tries to pass the ball to me to help me", he said.

New Zealand are expected to win the semifinal and face Australia in a re-match of the Rio Olympics final. Australia still managed to lead the medal's table with 80 gold medals, and a total of 198 medals.

Ever since they were unceremoniously knocked out of the FA Cup after a 2-3 defeat in the 4th round at the hands of West Brom towards the end of January, Liverpool have consistently been firing on all cylinders, wiping out teams that have stood in their way, including the seemingly infallible Manchester City.

"I will try my best to score again and help the team".

"We played well and created many chances, scored three goals and it was well deserved".

"His finish in the second leg of the quarter-final was just incredible and there have been so many moments like that throughout the season".

After they were beaten by arch-rivals Manchester United a week earlier from two goals up when victory would have crowned them kings of England, then knocked out of Europe by Liverpool, some suggested that City were beginning to flag.
