He said: "They've had Champions League games, they've played in big semi-finals, big quarter-finals, they've had games in between".

'You don't look at the past and say, "You know we scored a lot of goals so we are going to create them against Real Madrid". This is my fourth year now and the first time I have got to 30 goals in the Prem.

He then moved to Hull in 2014, where he played in two Premier League campaigns that both ended in relegation, before joining Liverpool for £8million last summer.

"This season we have shown some absolutely awesome games and have had some of our biggest games to date with our UEFA Champions League viewing figures up by 47 per cent this season".

Although Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool have netted 40 goals in the competition, more than any other side, the ruthlessness displayed by Zinedine Zidane's side at the Bernabeu was made all the more impressive as they were without the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Dani Carvajal.

The Reds have so far been playing hardball over Real's attempts to sign the prolific Egypt forward, as the two clubs prepare to meet in the Champions League final on May 26. "Winning football games is what makes me happy and the boys did it". There is a strong argument to say that he is the most gifted player ever to represent Liverpool, and he was the driving force behind what so almost became an unrivalled Reds triumph.

Despite Liverpool having their destiny in their own hands in the league, an unlikely defeat against Brighton, coupled with a Chelsea win at Newcastle would leave all the eggs in the Champions League final basket.

"It is really hard to stay focused but he is focused". It remains to be seen what lineup he goes with for the Brighton game but a strong lineup is expected. "I think it's a record that will stay for a long time". "The pressure was huge what we had in the last few weeks, but the boys dealt really well with it and that's a big, big thing". "Even if you don't want to think about it, people remind you that you're going to play a final so you will think about it".

Although one factor to elude Salah this season - to date - is a serious trophy.
