Mohamed Salah's Liverpool teammate Virgil van Dijk has backed the Egypt international to rediscover his goalscoring form for the club.

The 26-year-old, who is the fastest player in Reds history to reach the 50-goal mark for the club, has failed to score in last seven matches.

Van Dijk, though, is confident that the attacker will return to form in coming weeks as Liverpool set their sights on English Premier League and UEFA Champions League glory.

"Mo is a world-class player," Van Dijk told Liverpool's official website.

"People can say all they want but I think all the teams in the Premier League would love to have him in their side. We have him and I think he is playing well.

"The goals will come. That's something for a striker that is maybe going to be in your head but we tell him every time: you just need to keep working, keep going and you will be fine.

"He's still scored plenty of goals for us, to be fair, so it's not like two like me! It is like this."

Salah scored 44 goals in his first season on Merseyside and was duly named the PFA Player of the Year, having also clinched the English Premier League Golden Boot accolade last season.
