Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe praises Mohamed Salah

Salah has enjoyed a remarkable debut campaign at Liverpool, netting his 30th Premier League goal of the season on Saturday evening in Liverpool's comprehensive 3-0 win over Bournemouth.

The Egypt global is on track to win the Premier League Golden Boot, while he has helped his side into the Champions League semi-finals.

Drogba achieved the record by scoring 29 goals in the 2009-10 season to help Chelsea to a treble, and it was equalled a fortnight ago after Salah got the victor against Crystal Palace. This was the first time for Salah to be nominated for BBC African Footballer of the Year.

Salah's golden boot duel with Harry Kane took a twist last week when the Tottenham forward was successful with his claim that Christian Eriksen's second goal against Stoke should actually be awarded to him, as it brushed his shoulder.

Cherries boss Eddie Howe said: "The motivation for me is to try and finish as high as we can and try to win every game".

Salah could have scored in just the third minute, prodding a great opportunity wide from Trent Alexander-Arnold's whipped cross, but the first Reds goal arrived shortly after. "I don't care about the rest".

"I can not lie - it is in my mind".

"It is a great feeling, of course it is a great feeling, but in the end I am just happy to score and help the team", he told United Kingdom newspapers. "And what a number of goals we scored as team, around about 100 as a team, I don't know, didn't count". I'm also sure Tottenham's players try to help Harry Kane and also Manchester City's try to help Sergio Aguero'.

Huddersfield look well set for just a second ever season in the Premier League as Tom Ince netted in stoppage time beat Watford 1-0 and open up a seven-point lead on the bottom three.

Mane and Firmino both came close to adding a third, while at the other end Dan Gosling fired at Loris Karius, but the only player in Liverpool's attacking triumvirate without a goal would find the target before the end.
