Mohamed Salah says that now is not the time to be selfish and talk about his contract as he focuses on Liverpool’s Premier League title run-in

And in total, the Egypt international has been involved in 30 goals and 14 assists in only 44 matches in all competitions, a run of form that has so far helped Liverpool win the League Cup, as well as reach the final of the FA Cup and the semi-finals of the Champions League.

Salah, who succeeds last year’s winner, City defender Ruben Dias, is also the current top scorer in the Premier League after netting 22 times, five more than Heung-Min Son and Cristiano Ronaldo, while the forward is also the leading assist maker in the top flight having managed one more than team-mate Trent Alexander-Arnold.
