Salah prefers Champions League to Golden Boot

Share

Liverpool ace Mohamed Salah has broken another Premier League record.

"Full credit to Liverpool, comparing to last season they've improved and grown as a team, they've shown that throughout the season in the Premier League and the Champions League".

However, he returned to the starting lineup after midweek's assault on Manchester City in the Uefa Champions League.

"To win the Champions League is "whissssshhhh" I can't say "woahhh".

The Merseyside outfit fell behind in the second minute at The Etihad in the return leg but Salah equalised in the second half before Firmino sealed the win.

"Where do you start first?"

Liverpool were rampant in the first 45 minutes but failed to add to their advantage with Salah surprisingly profligate in front of goal.

That's despite new horror competition from Blumhouse's Truth Or Dare , which looked to target more of a teen audience. At ninth, we find Tyler Perry's Acrimony , earning $3.7 million, while Chappaquiddick fell to 10th on $3 million.

Liverpool play West Bromwich Albion in the league on April 21 before the first leg of their Champions League tie, three days later.

Roberto Firmino then rounded off a flawless afternoon for Liverpool's prolific front three by drilling low past Begovic for a third in stoppage time.

"To win the Champions League", Salah said when asked if he preferred to win the competition or an individual award.

But they did at least keep themselves in the running with a spirited comeback at St Mary's after falling behind to goals from Dusan Tadic and debutant Jan Bednarek.

"As long as it is mathematically possible we will believe we can reach the top four", said Giroud as Chelsea closed to within seven points of Spurs in fourth.

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. Twice. Oh, and they beat City once before that as well.

Reds boss Jurgen Klopp acknowledged on Friday that the forthcoming tie with Roma would be at the forefront of fans' minds, but his immediate priority of securing a top-four league finish was evident by the fact he made just one change to his team.
