Egypt and Liverpool winger Mohamed Salah has revealed his two club teammates who helped him shine at Anfield Stadium.

The Pharaohs international says Senegal’s Sadio Mane and Brazil’s Roberto Firminho have contributed as he settled down in England.

Salah arrived in the English Premier League from the Italian Serie A’s AS Roma for €42 million last year and reveals how Mane and Firmino helped to improve his fine form.

In their campaign so far, Mane has scored six goals this season with five assists, which is strangely low for the former Southampton winger.

On the other hand, Firmino has scored 11 league goals with another five assists as he has surprised everyone in the number nine role.

"They're both top players [Roberto Firming and Sadio Mane] but so are Oxlade-Chamberlain and Henderson and everyone who plays near my position,” said Salah to FourFourTwo.

“It's of course no surprise to hear Salah mention his two partners in the Reds' most dangerous front three either.

"We know each other well because of the training every day, so when it comes to a match they make it easy for me.

“Actually we make it easy for each other. We are all very happy together, we want to improve and have the best season we can."

The side's potent attack has seen them rise to third in the Premier League as they battle with Manchester United, Chelsea, Spurs and Arsenal for three Champions League places.
