Liverpool into Champions League at Chelsea's expense

Zinedine Zidane Real Madrid

Marcus Rashford scored his first goal since March for United's victor, whilst Jamie Vardy and Harry Kane both struck twice at Wembley as Tottenham came from 3-1 down to beat Leicester 5-4 and hold off Liverpool to finish third.

Klopp also clearly pointed out that it is not easy to repeat the same number of goals for a player, but he is happy for Salah as he received the Premier League Golden Boot after the match against Brighton for an exceptional season in Liverpool colours.

Solanke's wait to score for Liverpool ended in Sunday's 4-0 win over Brighton & Hove Albion at Anfield.

Kane's goals were good enough, though, for Spurs to edge past Champions League finalists Liverpool to finish third behind Manchester City and Manchester United.

Kane broke the 30-goal barrier in the Premier League for the first time in his career this campaign, yet still finished two goals behind Liverpool forward Salah.

"He has helped me a lot to do what I'm doing on the field and off it". This is my fourth year now and the first time I have got to 30 goals in the Prem.

"Mo has done fantastic and he looks like a great player. I like him a lot", added the Egyptian, who is looking to add to his 44 goals this season against Real Madrid.

Kane saying Salah "looks like a great player" will no doubt annoy Liverpool fans across the globe but does he have a point?

Now Salah has the challenge of leading his team against Real Madrid in Kiev, and for once, the Merseyside club may actually have a chance of beating the erstwhile favorite European giants.

Liverpool ace Mohamed Salah regards manager Jurgen Klopp as a "friend". Is this a one-off?

Sadio Mane's goal in the semifinal second leg against Roma took his, Salah's and Roberto Firmino's tally to 29 goals, surpassing the previous record of 28 set by Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema in 2013-14.

The 25-year-old, who did not get much opportunity to play for the Blues under Mourinho, has now revealed that his former boss had only good things to say to him when they met at Anfield and Old Trafford this season.
