Liverpool star Mohamed Salah has broken a Premier League record set by legendary Chelsea striker Didier Drogba following his goal against Bournemouth.

Jurgen Klopp believes Liverpool's clash with Bournemouth represented the ideal way to wind down from their midweek Champions League exploits.

The Egyptian king also became the first Arab player to score 30 goals in one season in the English Premier League and 40 goals in his first season with Liverpool in various tournaments.

The goal also saw the Egypt global reach the 40-goal mark across all competitions; a feat that he achieved in just 45 games. This was the first time for Salah to be nominated for BBC African Footballer of the Year. "I'm sure he'll keep doing that for the rest of the season". "We have got five finals to play, after that we will see".

However that run-in sees them face all of the Premier League's top four sides, along with making the trip to an in-form Burnley. Crystal Palace are in a precarious position entering in the final stretch of matches in the Premier League .

Salah's personal dual to deny Harry Kane a third successive golden boot was brought into sharper focus after the Tottenham forward was controversially awarded Spurs' second goal against Stoke last weekend. "But you can see with the team, everyone tries to pass the ball to me to help me", he said.

They had appealed the Premier League Match Centre's call to hand Christian Eriksen the goal, with Kane arguing the Dane's free-kick had brushed his shoulder, and the overturning of the decision prompted Salah to respond with surprise on social media.

"It's very close, it's just seven goals".

"Second-half I though we improved greatly, I thought we were well in the game until a brilliant second goal from their perspective kills the game".

They won the title because they were the best team, because they won a great amount of points. The Belgian will enjoy his third Premier League title lift in seven years.

It was a handsome Anfield day for football and the home side echoed that, opening the scoring with Sadio Mane before Mohamed Salah's header ended any hopes of a Bournemouth revival, Roberto Firmino adding a third late on.

Manchester City can move to within one win of sealing the title later on Saturday should they end a run of three consecutive defeats in all competitions against Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley.

Klopp's side put the gloss on the result in injury time when the tireless Roberto Firmino was rewarded for his persistence and finished calmly at the near post after being found by Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

"We played well today and created many chances, scored three goals and it was well deserved". I try to score every game to help the team.
