Salah 'expected' Liverpool heroics but denies being arrogant

Coutinho celebrates after scoring

Salah and Liverpool are back in action on Sunday afternoon when Klopp's men travel to Southampton in the Premier League (4:30pm).

Liverpool are now third in the Premier League, 18 points behind runaway leaders Manchester City.

The Egyptian worldwide has scored 29 times for Liverpool since his summer move from AS Roma.

When asked if he would like to play in La Liga, the Reds star told Marca: "At the moment I am here".

After scoring a goal and making an assist in his first Premier League game for the Reds back in August against Watford, Salah has since scored a further 27 goals in all competitions.

Jose Mourinho sent him out on loan to Fiorentina and then Roma, where he completed a €15m move to last summer.

Former Tottenham Hotspur striker Mido has revealed that he is "proud" of Mohamed Salah after the Liverpool forward became the highest-scoring Egyptian in Premier League history.

But better it he has, and it's left Mourinho looking a little bit foolish for letting him go.

"We also spoke after the match against Manchester United this season and have a good relationship".

In an interview with FourFourTwo, he said: "I have loved the club since I was young and knew this was a team I wanted to play for. I think I'm doing well".

But the 25-year-old remained coy when quizzed about whether he was the new "King of the Kop", insisting he is only focussed on one thing.

However, it's Liverpool who've benefited hugely from the situation, and if they qualify for the Champions League again this season, it's safe to say Salah has done the majority of the work for them.
