Asked which he would prefer, the PFA gong or the European Cup, Salah told reporters: "I have no doubt. the Champions League".

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.

It has been a remarkable debut campaign for Salah following his off-season arrival from Serie A side Roma, who Liverpool will face in the Champions League semi-finals - the Egypt global leading the Golden Boot race with 30 Premier League goals ahead of Harry Kane.

Salah has score nine times in 11 games in the Champions League in all competitions this season to help Liverpool FC reach the last four.

Chelsea kept their faint hopes of Champions League football next season alive by closing to within seven points of Spurs with a stunning eight-minute fightback to deepen Southampton's predicament in the bottom three.

The Reds avoided a case of "after the Lord Mayor's show" by following up their progression to the Champions League semi-finals earlier in the week with a 3-0 victory over the Cherries at Anfield. "I don't care about the rest".

He said: "Of course it's a great feeling". I'm also sure Tottenham's players try to help Harry Kane and also Manchester City's try to help Sergio Aguero'.

"But you can see with the team, everyone tries to pass the ball to me to help me".

On Ake, Howe said; "I thought Nathan Ake and Steve Cook individually performed very well, in some tough situations against some very good players, they defended their one vs one duels very well".

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.

For Bournemouth it's just about finish as high as possible this season with their Premier League status all but secured for another season.
