The Egyptian, who joined from Roma in the summer, became the fastest player to 20 Premier League goals on Sunday during the 2-2 draw with Tottenham.

And reflecting on his impact at Anfield so far, the Egypt worldwide isn't shocked: 'I don't want to seem arrogant!

Mohamed Salah has revealed that he spoke to Jose Mourinho after Liverpool's clash with Manchester United in October.

The Egyptian has 21 goals and seven assists in only 25 games for Liverpool, finding the net a further seven times in nine Champions League and FA Cup outings.

The 25-year-old arrived from Italy for a mere £34.5million (BBC), a modest fee in today's climate, and his return has led to be arguably the signing of the season by any Premier League side. I had two good seasons there. I came back here to show my football.

"But at the end of the day I think it's a bit different than Coutinho".

"I didn't play for Chelsea when I was here three years ago. I knew the history this club has and, as soon as I got the chance, I had to make it happen", Salah told FourFourTwo magazine.

For now, though, Salah is happy on Merseyside and has curbed the transfer talk somewhat by reiterating his happiness at having secured a move to the club he supported as a boy.

'We want to push ourselves to win something. We, as ex-players who are still big Liverpool fans, want him to keep going - we want him to break all the records goings because if he is scoring goals, it means we're doing the right things.
