Record-breaker Salah helps Liverpool secure a Champions League spot

Harry Kane has challenged Mohamed Salah to deliver the goods again next year after the Liverpool man's record-breaking Premier League season. Considering the aforementioned, FCNaija will be comparing Salah's season to the other best seasons in the Premier League era: in the person of Luis Suarez, Cristiano Ronaldo and Alan Shearer.

He appeared 15 times for the Swans (seven as a sub) and scored two goals, but didn't make much of an impact on football fans as Swansea were relegated on the final day of the season.

It also ensured Salah claimed the Premier League golden boot, finishing two goals clear of Tottenham's Harry Kane - victor of the award in the previous two seasons - to add a sixth major individual honor to an already overflowing mantlepiece.

The Egyptian, now headed to the Champions League final, took home the PFA Players' Player of the Year Award this season.

"He has done incredible this year and he looks like a great player, and we'll see if we can both continue it next season".

Upcoming events in Kiev were, understandably, on everybody's minds at Anfield, but a victory over Brighton was the immediate priority before focusing on the Champions League final against Real Madrid on May 26.

"He has helped me a lot to do what I'm doing on the field and off it".

The result saw travel-sick Brighton end an otherwise successful first Premier League campaign without an away league win in 2018, as Chris Hughton's team wilted in the Merseyside sunshine.

Luka Modric acknowledges that, while Liverpool were not one of the pre-tournament favourites to win the Champions League, they deserve respect in next week's final. There is still work to do, and I'm really happy about that. Wijnaldum admits. "Even before this game, nobody is talking about this game".

"Everyone reminds you that you're going to play a final".

"If they can beat Real Madrid in Kiev, what an achievement that would be for the club and Jurgen Klopp. Then we'll see what's going to happen".

"They're used to playing in games like this".
