The Egypt forward, who will be representing his country at the 2018 FIFA World Cup, made 51 appearances across all competitions for the Merseyside club this season, scoring 44 goals and assisting a further 16 strikes.

It is the latest milestone reached by City, which has also claimed the most wins, goals and victories in a row in this record-breaking season.

Speaking after Tottenham's 5-4 win against Leicester on the final (Kane scored twice, by the way), the England global has challenged Salah to repeat his incredible season from his debut campaign at Liverpool.

The 33-year-old wants pay parity with Lionel Messi and Neymar after driving Los Blancos to a fourth Champions League final in five years.

Since lifting the Champions League in 2005 Liverpool have won just one trophy, the 2012 League Cup, and the weight of expectation of adding to their European haul grows ever greater on Jurgen Klopp's players.

But Salah is not the only Liverpool player to hit double figures in Europe - he is joined by Roberto Firmino, who also has 10.

Meanwhile, NAIJ.com reported that midfield legend Michael Carrick will become Mourinho's assistant following the departure of Rui Faria. Away goals do not count extra, so a 1-0 result for Fulham will see the match head to extra time and possibly penalties.

It was thought the figure would be decided by the Professional Football Compensation Committee (PFCC) at a tribunal, but a source told ESPN FC that the two Premier League clubs have been waiting until the end of the season before they continue discussions about the player's value at the time of his move.

Over at Anfield, Liverpool's Egyptian superstar, Mohamed Salah ended his season at Liverpool with two Guinness World Records titles of his own: Most goals by a football (soccer) player in an English Premier League season (38 games) and Most English Premier League football (soccer) matches scored in by an individual during a season (38 game)*.
