Champions League draw: Liverpool to face Roma in semi-finals

Champions League draw: Liverpool to face Roma in semi-finals

Salah scored his 40th goal of the season in all competitions during Liverpool's 3-0 win over Bournemouth on Saturday.

Jürgen Klopp's team dominated from start to finish on their return to Premier League action, scoring in the seventh minute through Sadio Mane and adding further strikes from Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino in the second period.

It was Salah who again hogged the headlines as he joined Roger Hunt and Ian Rush as the only players to score 40 times in a single season for Liverpool.

Salah has enjoyed a remarkable debut campaign following his summer arrival from Serie A side Roma, leading the Golden Boot race with 30 Premier League goals ahead of Tottenham Hotspur's Harry Kane. A lot of times we are in a position shooting and they can not always give the ball to him.

"It's good, it's impressive - what a number, wow".

"He didn't look today like he doesn't want to score in the next few games".

Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe was in awe of Liverpool, meanwhile, admitting his side struggled to make a fist of the match. We had a good time in the dressing room. "You see the boys sometimes searching for him a little too much".

The hosts made the ideal start when Sadio Mane followed up his own header to prod the ball past Cherries keeper Asmir Begovic.

If there were any doubters still out there questioning Salah's incredible season, take that stat in.

"I wouldn't play him against West Brom [next Saturday]".

The attacker netted Liverpool FC's crucial first away goal as they sealed a 5-1 aggregate win over Manchester City in the Champions League last week.

Others are less so, like the reality Bournemouth no longer bring out the worst in them.

Roma will need to keep Salah quiet to have any hope of progressing to the Champions League final in Kiev on May 26.
