Mohamed Salah has proven merciless in his slaying of goal records since arriving on Merseyside last summer.
Few scoring feats have managed to evade the Egyptian, who is now eyeing up two more in Saturday’s Premier League clash at home to Stoke.
In a Liverpool side that prides itself on team contribution, Salah’s individual ambitions could prove pivotal in quashing any Champions League distractions during the ongoing fight for a top-four finish.
The forward currently sits on 43 goals across all competitions, leaving him just four shy of the 47 Ian Rush fired during the 1983/1984 season.
Within that total, 31 have arrived in the league to propel Salah to first place in the race for the Golden Boot ahead of Tottenham’s Harry Kane.
One more goal will make Salah the highest-scoring player in a single 38-game top flight season, surpassing not only Luis Suarez but also the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Alan Shearer.
He is also now just three away from equalling the 34 Andy Cole and Shearer notched during their respective 42-game campaigns.
His threat of goal-scoring supremacy doesn’t end there, with Salah a goal against Stoke away from matching Suarez’s eight-game scoring streak at Anfield in the Premier League.
Such records have seen the 25-year-old comfortably join the conversation as not only one of Liverpool’s most deadly strikers but also one of their most inspired signings in the modern era.

It remains to be seen how long Salah plays against Paul Lambert’s men, with Jurgen Klopp undoubtedly wary of Wednesday’s Champions League semi-final second-leg against Roma.
