Salah targeting another Premier League record

Salah targeting another Premier League record

Roma sent a classy "friends" message to Mo Salah after they drew Liverpool in the Champions League semi-finals.

Liverpool will host Roma at Anfield In the semifinal first leg on April 24, with the return at the Stadio Olimpico in Italy's capital on May 2.

They avoided Bayern Munich and holders Real Madrid - who play each other instead.

"I'm really pleased for myself and my staff but particularly my players, they are having a really outstanding season", Dyche told the Premier League website.

"Every game they come, I hear them because they sing a special song for me", said Salah.

Serie A side Roma produced a remarkable comeback to knock out Barcelona. "It's important to play a good game at Anfield, after which we have the slight advantage of playing the second leg at home - where we will have the great passion of our fans to push us on".

"But if anybody think this is the easiest draw then I can not help this person; they obviously didn't see both games against Barcelona".

Salah will face his former club for the first time since joining Liverpool for €42.7m last summer.

"It's not a situation I would even think about", Klopp said.

It could be that there are more honours to come for Salah before the season is out, with his sights being set on another record.

"I don't think that he has always overperformed but when he is on the pitch he is always a goal threat, and that helps us a lot for sure". "I don't think about it. It's still five games to go, there's a big chance, let's see". "In the moment we have to deliver performances, collecting points, winning". We are still young and full of potential and all that stuff. "My impression is they are all excited about being in this group". The final is scheduled for May 26 at the Olympic Stadium in Kiev, Ukraine.

"We were either going to keep him for that year, and get zero for him, or we would have to sell him".

Roma sporting director Monchi believes the tie also offers the Italians hope of progress.

He has scored seven goals in his past four games in all competitions, and is determined to lead Liverpool past Roma, the team it defeated in the 1984 European Cup final.

"It's a hard draw for both sides".
