Salah has been Liverpool main goal scorer since his arrival from Roma last two seasons, he championed Liverpool to the Champions League finals and suffered an injury in the final against Real Madrid which affected Liverpool campaign.

When asked about his preferred position Salah said: "I have played at centre-forward a lot this season but I still also play as a winger and have scored many goals as a winger.

"I don't like to brand myself a No. 9 because the way I play, it's never like I hold the ball and am always physically strong.

"As a striker, I have to drop deep to get the ball and go past the players so, even when I play as a nine, my position is a different type of game to many centre-forwards.

"When I play No. 9 I drop deep to play as a No. 10, too, to keep the ball and dribble.

"I am always trying to help the team score goals and I am still one of the top scorers in the Premier League so I am happy about that,” He told Sky Sports.

Salah has scored 64 goals in all competitions since his arrival from Roma last two season.

Liverpool will host Watford in their next Premier League clash on Wednesday.
