It was Nathan Ake, playing on the left side of a back three, that had the challenge of keeping Salah quite, the Dutchman doing fairly well in comparison to some more senior defender's that have faced Liverpool's star man this season.

The Egypt global is favourite to be named PFA Player of the Year next weekend for a hugely impressive campaign that has seen him net 39 goals in all competitions. "I am excited to be champions with our fans".

Thirty of those have come in the Premier League, leaving him out in front in the race to win the Golden Boot, but the accolades will count for little unless Salah gets his hands on the big prize next month - the Champions League trophy.

Victory edges Liverpool ever closer to securing a return to the Champions League next season as they closed to within one point of Manchester United in second and re-established their 10-point lead over fifth-placed Chelsea.

"Liverpool then have a home game against Stoke and I would encourage Klopp to rest his front three for that one and have them ready for what will be a hard game at the Stadio Olympico in Rome".

Despite facing Manchester City in the Champions League quarter-final second leg just a few day prior to the game, manager Jurgen Klopp chose to keep much the same side. "But you can see with the team, everyone tries to pass the ball to me to help me", he said.

"It means a lot to me".

"I will try my best to score again and help the team".

Any sense Liverpool would be distracted by the looming continental clashes with Roma was banished by Mane's early goal, with Mohamed Salah then netting his 40th of the campaign and Roberto Firmino's late strike ensuring Klopp's side remain on course for a top-four finish.

For all Liverpool's dominance, they only had one goal to show for it in the first half as Salah continued to be frustrated, with Steve Cook's brilliant challenge denying him. "We have got five finals to play, after that we will see".
