  • The five best players at Anfield in Liverpool’s dominant 3-0 win vs Bournemouth

However, he returned to the starting lineup after midweek's assault on Manchester City in the Uefa Champions League.

There were a few moments against Bournemouth when Salah looked preoccupied by getting to 40 goals, but he made no apology as he wants to outgun Tottenham's Harry Kane in the race for the Golden Boot.

Now, Aldridge - writing in his column for Sunday World - feels it is time for Klopp to rest Salah in the league to ensure the Egyptian is fully fit for Liverpool's semi-final against Roma; even if that means losing out on the Golden Boot.

"Liverpool then have a home game against Stoke and I would encourage Klopp to rest his front three for that one and have them ready for what will be a hard game at the Stadio Olympico in Rome".

The 25-year-old has scored 30 goals in 32 league appearances for Liverpool in his debut season at the club and is a favourite to win the Professional Footballers' Association Player of the Year award.

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.

"What a number. Wow!" exclaimed manager Jurgen Klopp on hearing Salah is the first Liverpool player since Ian Rush 31 years ago to score 40 in a season. It's also very close, it's just seven goals.

"I can not lie - it is in my mind". 'You can see everyone tries to pass the ball to help me. It's all about him and all about us, how we finish the season.

"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.

He also ranks third in the list of the most prolific players in a single season in the history of the Liverpool team, scoring 40 goals in various tournaments.

"We don't need any more incentive than that".

For all Liverpool's dominance, they only had one goal to show for it in the first half as Salah continued to be frustrated, with Steve Cook's brilliant challenge denying him.
