Mohamed Salah is THIS good says Reds defender Virgil van Dijk

Mohamed Salah is THIS good says Reds defender Virgil van Dijk

Salah scored his 37th goal of the season in all competitions on Saturday when he netted the victor in Liverpool's 2-1 victory at Crystal Palace.

The pair will go head-to-head in the quarter-finals of the Champions League on Wednesday and De Bruyne said: "You can not compare - it is impossible". "It is enriching to see how his career has developed".

Local reports said earlier on Tuesday that Salah might be suspended ahead of the World Cup for not showing up for a routine doping test during Egypt's training camp in Switzerland, where they played two friendly games against Portugal and Greece in March.

City travel to Anfield on Wednesday night for the first leg of their all-English quarter-final tie against Liverpool.

"He's that kind of player that you just need to be on your best".

It's totally different, I played [against Everton] like a defensive midfielder, how you can compare me to an inside forward?

"Everybody has his own opinion". "There is nearly no game where my standard has dropped, I have been very constant".

Runaway league leaders City's attacking intent revolves around the De Bruyne-David Silva partnership in midfield providing the ammunition for a pacy forward line of Raheem Sterling, Leroy Sane and either Gabriel Jesus or Sergio Aguero.

"To compare us, I don't know". This season, he has been incredible, so to compare us, I don't know.

Brazilian Danilo, converted midfielder Fabian Delph and Ukrainian youngster Oleksandr Zinchenko have all played in that role this season but Guardiola opted for French central defender Aymeric Laporte in that position for Saturday's 3-1 win at Everton.

His record of 28 games equals that set by Cristiano Ronaldo and Robin van Persie, but Salah still has six games left to break that record. Luckily I don't have to do that. As his manager, I'd say, "come on, prove it by playing at this level for the rest of the season".
