Given Salah's contribution to Jurgen Klopp's side this season, he has been linked with a big-money move to the likes of Real Madrid but, after collecting his Football Writers' Association Player of the Year award on Thursday night, he pledged his allegiance to the Reds.

'I can not (rule him out), and I don't want to, close the door on him'.

With 31 goals and nine assists in the Premier League, the PFA Player of the Year has accrued a sensational 292 points in FPL this year and is just four short of beating the record Luis Suarez set (295) in 2013/14 when the Uruguayan was on fire for Liverpool.

Jermaine Jenas has urged Liverpool FC to use their Premier League clash against Brighton as a dress rehearsal for the Champions League final.

"I think (Salah) deserved all of the awards he got", Klopp told a press conference yesterday. "That's the situation but it's no problem to play the game, we have to play it anyway so now we have to win it, that's it".

"So that's the starting point and anything else is a bonus and we are obviously aiming a lot higher than that every season, but that's the minimum".

"I'm very happy, it's an honour to win this award", he said.


"We'll have a group of players who haven't played at Anfield before and these are the ones you look forward to as a team".

City could already be crowned English champions by the time the sides meet again for the second leg in six days' time should they beat local rivals Manchester United on Saturday. They are a team that start very, very well and if you are not at it you can find yourselves behind very early.

Klopp added: "There will be hopefully moments when the boys can relax, which is what they deserve and what they need".

"If Man City are that good next season then I don't see too much difference because I don't see too much wrong with what Liverpool have done".

Read on for all the latest team news ahead of Sunday's season-ending showcase, where Chelsea stand as one of the few top-flight teams with something substantial left to fight for. But over the whole season, what the boys did in the most hard circumstances. They paid just £39.5m to get the winger who has having a great time at AS Roma.

Would Liverpool or Chelsea have to face a Champions League play-off for finishing in 4th place? It will not be an easy task for the Reds but the star is positive that they can win the coveted title.
