Mohamed Salah insists winning the Champions League with Liverpool would mean far more to him than any personal accolades that come his way.

Mohamed Salah became the third Liverpool player in history to score 40 goals in a single season by netting once again in a 3-0 win over Bournemouth on Saturday.

"We have the Premier League and semi-finals of the Champions League to play".

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

'If you had a choice, then of course it is the Champions League, ' said Salah.

The victory rounded off a fine week for Liverpool, which sealed a Champions League semifinal against Roma by beating Manchester City 5-1 on aggregate. "I'm sure he'll keep doing that for the rest of the season".

Salah's goal, his English Premier League-leading 30th, increased his advantage over Harry Kane in the Golden Boot race while strengthening Liverpool's grip on a top-four finish.

With two inexperienced full-backs in Andrew Robertson and Trent Alexander-Arnold, you'd be forgiven for thinking Liverpool could be hurt out wide - but they both has magnificent games while Alexander-Arnold grabbed an assist.

Still there remained very little goal threat at the other end, with Jermain Defoe anonymous, allowing Salah time to finally find his range.

It is a great feeling, of course it is a great feeling, but in the end I am just happy to score and help the team. I can not lie - it is in my mind. And what a number we scored as a team in the whole season, that's insane.

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.
