Mohamed Salah sets new Premier League goal record, eclipses Shearer, Ronaldo, Suarez

Grant SmithMay 14, 2018

It was an impressive performance on a ideal sunny afternoon at Anfield and Jurgen Klopp's side lingered long after the final whistle, soaking up the celebratory atmosphere with the Champions League final against Real Madrid to come on 26 May.

Mohamed Salah scored his 32nd goal of the league campaign - his 44th in all competitions - to break the record for the most goals in a 38-game Premier League season. The boys are humans, not machines, and we had a lot of injury problems.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp hailed the flawless end to the season as they secured a top-four spot with a 4-0 victory over Brighton which sets them up for the Champions League final in a fortnight.

After the interval, Liverpool provided two further moments of cheer as Dominic Solanke slammed home his maiden Reds' goal after 53 minutes before Andy Robertson also got his first for the club.

"It's hard to compare one season directly with another", Klopp said by way of explanation. I have no problem concentrating on Brighton, I have not been skipping forward to think about Real Madrid. It must be a joy to play in that team with so many chances created.

However, despite both setting the all-time scoring record and claiming the Premier League Golden Boot from Harry Kane while doing so, the 25-year-old will miss out on this year's European Golden Shoe award, with Lionel Messi sitting two goals ahead in the rankings. I told the boys at half-time if someone from outside described us they would say Liverpool is drama.

"We showed the kind of football we couldn't show the last few games".

Probed on how Liverpool can bridge the gap to the champions, the German continued: 'We need more consistency, we need to have a little bit more luck with injuries and to be honest we would be closer. I've had a great season.

Kop icon Kenny Dalglish presented him with that plus his PFA Player of the Year and Football Writers' Association Footballer of the Year gongs.

He said: "For sure we will do that you can imagine, we need more players here and there, but I am still a big believer in developing and developing a team, and these boys made a big step and I am sure they will take another step".
