After a stunning debut season at Liverpool, Mohamed Salah is 25/1 (26.0) with bet365 to break the single-season Premier League goalscoring record by netting 35 times in the 2018/19 campaign.

The forward signed a new five-year contract on Monday after scoring 32 times in his first season with the Anfield club, keeping on Merseyside until 2023.

With Egypt out of the World Cup, Salah should be fresh for Liverpool’s first game in August and bet365’s 25/1 (26.0) quote about him scoring 35 times or more represents a tempting bet for punters.

The online bookmaker are also 6/4 (2.50) that he scores between 20 and 24 goals inclusive, or 3/1 (4.0) on him scoring 25-29 times.

His tally of 32 is the most ever in a 38-game Premier League season and those who believe he will repeat the trick can get him at 7/1 (8.0) to score between 30 and 34 goals.

bet365’s Steve Freeth said: “Salah has already topped some illustrious names in the Premier League record books and he’s 25/1 to beat Cole and Shearer’s 42-game tally of 34 next season.”

Liverpool have also been installed as 5/1 (6.0) second-favourites to win their maiden Premier League crown with bet365, with Manchester City unsurprisingly leading the way at 4/7 (1.57).

The Reds’ success will surely hinge on the form of Salah, as well as that of strike partners Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino, whilst big-money signings Fabinho and Naby Keita are a signal of intent from Jurgen Klopp's side.

Manchester United sit just behind the Reds at 7/1 (8.0) to add to their haul of 20 top flight titles, with Chelsea out at 12/1 (13.0) and Tottenham at 16/1 (17.0).

Unai Emery’s Arsenal can be backed at 28/1 (29.0) to win the league in their first season in over 20 years without Arsene Wenger at the helm, whilst newly-promoted Wolves are 300/1 (301.0).
