Salah hits 40 in easy Liverpool win, Southampton suffer Chelsea collapse

Salah hits 40 in easy Liverpool win, Southampton suffer Chelsea collapse

And Salah says winning the Champions League is a big goal in any player's dreams, as he prepares to take on former side AS Roma in the final four of the competition.

The goal for Salah continued his incredible debut season at Liverpool in which he has now scored a stunning 30 Premier League goals and 40 in all competitions.

The Reds, inspired by Salah, booked their place in the UEFA Champions League semi-finals with a win at Manchester City on Wednesday (AEST), but their attention returned to domestic action in a victory that puts pressure on second-placed rival Manchester United.

"If you had a choice?"

Although the Egyptian has stolen headlines with his goals, creativity, and general influence on the side, both Firmino and Mane have also been huge contributors to Liverpool's success this season. "I'm sure he'll keep doing that for the rest of the season".

That effort gave Salah a five-goal cushion in the race for the Premier League Golden Boot and he is now only seven short of equalling Ian Rush's club best of 47 in a single campaign - with at least six games remaining. Victory for Liverpool was another blow to Chelsea's hopes of Champions League football next season.

The goal also saw the Egypt worldwide reach the 40-goal mark across all competitions; a feat that he achieved in just 45 games.

Speaking at his post-match news conference on Saturday, Klopp said: "He was very often in good situations and in the end he scored one goal".

"We have to carry it on for a few games to come. But you can see with the team, everyone tries to pass the ball to me to help me", he said.

"It's like that but, in the end, we play as a team".

"Each goal for me, or for anyone else, is to try to help the team".

Just like against United last weekend when a 2-0 half-time lead disappeared in 16 minutes, City threatened to let another promising position slip away when Christian Eriksen brought Spurs back into the game just before the break with a bit of fortune when Aymeric Laporte's clearance ricocheted off the Dane and past the helpless Ederson.
