Mohamed Salah is THIS good says Reds defender Virgil van Dijk

Salah is set to pose the biggest attacking threat to City in the first leg of the all-English Champions League quarter-final clash, having already scored 37 goals in all competitions this season, including one in Liverpool's 4-3 league victory over Pep Guardiola's side in January.

The former Chelsea winger joined the Merseyside club from Roma last summer, is on top of the goal-scorers' list with 29 goals from as many league games.

Salah is set to pose the greatest attacking threat to City, having already scored 37 goals in all competitions this season, and Van Dijk believes the Egypt worldwide is nearly unstoppable when at his best. That's how we feel as well.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp believes Mohamed Salah "100 per cent" deserves to win the PFA Player of the Year award and challenged him to continue his great form until the end of the season.


De Bruyne's form in the first half of the season appeared to make him a shoo-in for the Professional Footballers' Association Players' Player of the Year award, but Salah's goalscoring exploits are likely to have made it a much closer race.

The pair will go head-to-head in the quarter-finals of the Champions League on Wednesday and De Bruyne said: "You can not compare - it is impossible".

"That's obviously not my decision".

"He's having an incredible season but he needs to keep going, the season is still going".


While the Belgian is the favourite to be named player of the year, Salah has been making an extremely good case for himself.

Just seconds after making the claim, the 25-year-old scored the victor in the Reds' 2-1 win. "You have someone like Mo who does the hardest part of the game, which is putting the ball in the back of the net", Henderson explained. It makes us better. With the statistics how are we going to compare ourselves?

"I think everyone in the dressing room are just normal guys".

"That's what he knows and that's what everyone knows".
