Liverpool fans react to Richard Keys' latest tweet about Mohamed Salah

Mohamed Salah's debut season at Liverpool went from incredible to unbelievable on Saturday evening as he put FOUR past Watford during the 5-0 win at Anfield.

It means the Egyptian is now up to 28 goals in the Premier League and is on course to smash the record for most league goals in a season (31).

He has seven games to do it, too, three of which at home and four away to the likes of Chelsea, Crystal Palace and Everton.

Jurgen Klopp believes the best is yet to come from his summer signing and based on current form, you wouldn't put it past Salah to hit the 35-goal mark.

"He (Salah) played more on the wing for Roma, where he had a very dominant striker in Edin Dzeko," said Klopp.

"Nobody could know [that he could play as a striker]. We learned it step by step. We didn't know exactly that he's capable of playing in the centre.

"But we will not treat him like: 'You don't have to train, Mo - just come on Saturday for the game and we'll see you there at Anfield or whatever.' He doesn't want that.

"He's in the moment of his career but he knows there is a lot for him to come. He wants to learn and he wants to improve."

There are fears Salah could end up leaving Liverpool for Real Madrid in the coming years, but for now Kopites must simply treasure the 25-year-old.


In Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane, the Reds possess one of the best attacking trios in European football, not just the Premier League.

But what could Klopp do to try and keep the Egypt international? Well, Richard Keys has an idea but it hasn't gone down too well with Liverpool fans on Twitter.

Keys reckons one of the first things Liverpool should do next season is take the famous No.7 shirt from James Milner and give it to Salah, who currently wears No.11.

But the reaction has been pretty negative, with Liverpool fans insisting Salah should keep No.11 and make it legendary.



And besides, the No.11 shirt was reportedly Salah's favoured number when he arrived at Liverpool last summer, so he might not even want No.7.

"I appreciate what Firmino did (changing to No.9 so Salah could have No.11)," he said in August. "The club asked him and I have to thank him very much."
