Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah is confident that he can help Liverpool achieve their dream of winning a first Premier League title during his time at the club.

Mohamed Salah has admitted that he "would love" to win the Premier League title during his time at Liverpool, having already made a huge impact on supporters.

The Egypt international notched his 20th goal of the campaign against Bournemouth at the weekend, making him the first Reds player to hit that milestone pre-Christmas since Ian Rush.

Club-record signing Salah now intends to write his name in Anfield folklore in much the same way as legendary striker Rush by ending the Merseyside outfit's long-running wait for league silverware.

"As a team, I know we haven't won the Premier League for a long time, so I would love to win it with Liverpool," he told the club's official website. "We have a great team, we have a great manager, so everything is good at the club - and I am sure we can win trophies here together.

"There was interest from Liverpool when I went to Chelsea, but I think if I'd come at that time maybe things wouldn't have maybe have gone as well then as they have for me now. Who knows? But I went to Chelsea and everything worked out how it did and now I am here at Liverpool at the right time.

"When I go somewhere, I am always telling myself 'I have to learn from here' - and I know, 100%, I learned a lot from Chelsea; I learned how to be more professional and to become a better person and player. It was a big step in my career and I had a good relationship with the players there - and you could see that when we played them at Anfield recently.

"It was while I was at Chelsea that I first got to play at Anfield. I can remember I told myself - as I said on my very first day here - 'I have to come here one day and play' after I'd experienced that atmosphere. That atmosphere was unbelievable, really. I was very happy to play here against Liverpool - and now I am even happier to play for Liverpool here."

Only George Allan in 1895 has scored 20 goals for Liverpool in fewer matches than Salah
