Mohamed Salah refused to accept the man-of-the-match award following Liverpool's 4-0 win over Bournemouth on Saturday.
The 26-year-old scored a hat-trick to fire the Reds to the top of the English Premier League table and the Egypt international was duly voted the MOTM, but instead handed the accolade to teammate James Milner on his 500th Premier League appearance.
Salah has continued to extinguish any calls that he is a 'one season wonder' with the treble taking his goal tally to 12 in all competitions this season. He is also now the joint top scorer in the EPL with 10 goals alongside fellow African Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
"My expectation's are very high, I know everyone else's expectations are also very high, but the most important thing is that we are on top of the table, we need to win each game - that is the most important," Salah told SkySports News after the match.
Liverpool next face Napoli in a must win clash for the Merseyside club at Anfield on Tuesday evening. Anything but a clear victory will see last year's runners-up exit the competition in the group stages.
