He is also on the brink of matching, and ultimately breaking the most Premier League goals in a 38 game season, a record held by Alan Shearer, Cristiano Ronaldo and former Liverpool striker, Luis Suarez. Squawka have picked out 11 incredible stats that highlight the Egyptian's season.

Salah's extraordinary debut season continued as he helped the Merseysiders into the Champions League semifinals, and the feelgood factor shows no sign of waning as Klopp shrugged off concerns the 25-year-old will be the subject of a massive transfer bid this off-season.

But this season, as a winger, Salah has blown opposition defences out of the water with his dribbling skills, pace and vastly improved finishing ability. For around about 75 minutes a fantastic game and then somebody closed our power and the boys felt the intensity of the last few weeks.

"I watched the second leg against Barcelona - that was outstandingly good".

In November, he scored seven goals in four games and after two months without the award, Salah recorded another four in three.

The Egyptian has scored ten more goals in other competitions such as the Champions League.

On Liverpool's improved defensive record...

Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson made a light-hearted dig at England teammate Harry Kane, saying that Mohamed Salah is "going to claim all the Bournemouth goals".

Klopp was left hoping the defender's issue was "not too serious" but was unable to provide a more detailed update on the player's fitness, having not spoken to him after the game.

If there were any doubters still out there questioning Salah's awesome season, take that stat in.

"He knows that the way we play suits him".

"Mo Salah came in not a full year ago".

Jurgen Klopp has hinted that it could be "destiny" for Liverpool to lift the Champions League trophy for the sixth time in Kiev after being drawn against Roma in the semi finals.
