Egyptian and Liverpool star Mohomed Salah who has been in fine form since his arrival at Anfield from Roma last summer has set his sight on beating Tottenham Hotspur's Harry Kane as he enjoys the best moments of his career.

His goals record (21) has allowed him to compete with Harry Kane (22) in the Premier League, but also for the Golden Shoe, with Cavani (21) and Messi (20).

"After arriving here the first time [Chelsea] was always in my head, and after playing in Rome, coming back here to England was great beacuse I love the Premier League. Last year I had some good performances for Roma, but I arrived as a forward and started playing out wide. This year I'm scoring more goals. In any case I want to help the team to win titles or be in a good position in the league.

"I've always scored goals wherever I've played, but this year I'm doing so a lot more... it's not a surprise for me." Salah told MARCA

On his dreams and if he can become the Premier League's top scorer by beating Kane, the former Chelsea man added: "Now I want to be in a good position in the Premier League and help my international team to pass the first phase in the World Cup in Russia. Those are my goals for now, then we'll see.

"He is a great player, in the last two years he has already been the top scorer. Kane plays as a No.9 and has more chances to score goals than me. In my mind I want to win it, but we will see what happens." said

Salah's double against Spurs at Anfield on Sunday took his Premier League tally to 23 goals, surpassing the 22 that countryman and former Tottenham Hotspur striker Mido got during his spells with Tottenham, Middlesbrough and Wigan.
