How did Salah perform this season?

The 29-year-old had another excellent season. He shared the Golden Boot with Tottenham star Son Heung-min as they both finished with 23 goals in the English top-flight.

His goal in Liverpool's 3-1 win against Wolves on Sunday ensured he finished level with the Spurs attacker in terms of goals.

However no one contributed more goals in the Premier League this season, as Salah was the outright top assist maker in the division.

What next for Salah and Liverpool?

Salah is also one of the top performers in the Champions League. He has scored eight goals and set up two in the European competition so far.

He will have a chance to improve on that record when his team take on Real Madrid in the Champions League final next week.
