Mohamed Salah is not ready to rest on his laurels and hopes to match or better the 44 goals he scored across all competitions last season.

The 26-year-old recovered from a relatively slow start to the 2018/19 season; netting a hat-trick against Bournemouth before scoring the decisive goal in the Reds 1-0 win over Napoli in the Uefa Champions League.

Salah has scored 13 goals in 24 games across all competitions this season, assisting a further five, and the current PFA Player of the Year award and English Premier League Golden Boot holder hopes to add to his accolades in the current campaign.

"Of course, that makes me feel great, and makes me want to work harder and to continue performing," Salah said in an interview with GQ Middle East.

“Because after that if your standards drop, people will not accept it. It’s a great feeling, but I don’t see it as more pressure.

“For me it was, of course, a fantastic, historic season [in 2017-18] which I’m very proud of, but I’m looking for another one like it.

“I’m not going to live off it. On the contrary, it made me more excited and determined for this season," he concluded.

Salah will be hoping to add team accolades to his personal achievements with Liverpool desperate to end their league drought. The current EPL log leaders haven't won a league title since 1990.
