The Egyptian scored his 16th league goal of 2020/21 from the penalty spot in Sunday’s defeat to Manchester City.

Liverpool possess a supremely talented first team squad littered with established internationals who have enabled the Merseyside outfit to win the game’s biggest prizes in recent seasons.

Strikers Mo Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mané netted a combined 57 goals in all competitions last season, with the Reds’ attacking options being bolstered by the reported £41M signing of Diogo Jota, who made a promising start to his Liverpool career.

The Portuguese winger scored five Premier League goals and seven in all competitions prior to a knee injury that currently rules him out of action. Salah, meanwhile, is currently the Premier League’s top scorer with 16 strikes to his name.

In all competitions, Salah is on 22 goals this term, while Mané (10), Jota (9) and Firmino (6) have all provided too.
