Liverpool were thwarted in their bid for trophies last season and Mohamed Salah is eager to make amends in the 2018-19 campaign.

Mohamed Salah wants silverware more than any personal accolades as Liverpool seek success on multiple fronts.

Milestone

The Egypt international was imperious in a 44-goal 2017-18 season that nonetheless ended without any trophies for Jurgen Klopp's side. Liverpool – beaten Champions League finalists and fourth-placed finishers in the Premier League last season – host Merseyside rivals Everton on Sunday, where Salah can reach a personal milestone.

He needs a double to break Liverpool's record for most goals scored in a player's first 50 league games for the club, but such landmarks are secondary to his desire to add titles to his CV.

Target

"My target last season was not only to break the [goalscoring] record but also to win something with the club," Salah told Sky Sports, with Liverpool trophy-less since 2012. "We were very close in the Champions League final but this is football, we have to accept the result.

"This time also I can't say my individual one but my target now is to win something for the club. This would be huge for us as a team and as players. It's also a dream for the city and for the fans. I think this season we are going to do something," he said.

Klopp's side are unbeaten in the league this season, but are precariously position in their Champions League group, needing a win from their final game against Napoli to ensure progression.
