Salah has also equalled the record for the most goals scored in a 38-game English Premier League season with 31 goals in that competition.

Roma: Alisson 6, Federico Fazio 6, Kostas Manolas 5, Juan Jesus 4, Alessandro Florenzi 6, Daniele De Rossi 6, Kevin Strootman 6, Aleksandar Kolarov 6, Cengiz Under 5, Radja Nainggolan 6, Edin Dzeko 7. We had to sell him and the player wanted to leave.

Salah, Sadio Mane and Virgil van Dijk had been all pictured pulling into Melwood automotive park earlier than heading off to organize for his or her lunchtime kick-off on Saturday. Salah opened the scoring with a spectacular curling effort and added his second just before the half-time break. The Anfield side have one foot in next month's final but will feel disappointed to have conceded late goals.

With Mohamed Salah being linked with the likes of Real Madrid and Barca, Jürgen Klopp will not listen to offers for the Egyptian - even if they bid £200 million.

When Salah left the field to a standing ovation 15 minutes from time, Liverpool led 5-0.

It did not help that di Francesco asked his defenders to deploy a high defensive line. "You'll Never Walk Alone".

Jordan Henderson has warned his Liverpool FC side that they must remain on their toes heading into the return leg of their Champions League semi-final clash against AS Roma. The BBC and others reported that some Roma fans were carrying belts, while TV footage of the unrest showed one man carrying a hammer. They duly did so on Tuesday, providing a valuable edge inside the stadium.

The Ballon d´Or has gone to a victor of the Champions League for the last four years and Liverpool may have to lift a sixth European Cup in Kiev if Salah is to usurp double holder Ronaldo, whose Real side face Bayern Munich in the other semi-final. "The first goal is a genius strike".

"The second is brilliant play, Bobby (Firmino) between the lines and he (Salah) makes the play".

"He's in the form of his life", he said. They had been given unlikely hope. "But without a shadow of a doubt, he's the best player on the planet right now". "During the week, there's sometimes I don't really like him because he does that stuff to me".

"Did we expect it at the beginning of the season? No".

Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah sent Anfield into raptures with his dazzling display and was also the name on everybody's lips back in his home country of Egypt.

Just two weeks ago, Roma beat Lionel Messi's Barcelona 3-0 in the Stadio Olimpico to advance from the quarter-finals on away goals.

As Klopp himself said following the first-leg victory over Roma: "To be the best in the world maybe you have to do it for a longer period".

"We have to work again in Rome".
