Why I didn't do well at Chelsea - Mohamed Salah

On the other hand, Tottenham's opponents have an average of 50.25 goals conceded this season while Liverpool's are defensively superior on 49.

The former Chelsea, Fiorentina and Roma winger is favourite to pip Manchester City midfielder Kevin De Bruyne to the Professional Footballers' Association Player of the Year award on Sunday, having been named in the organisation's divisional best XI of the season this week. "It's just four goals and four games", he added. They have 24 points from 34 games and are nine points from 17th place and Premier League safety. Firmino is firmly established at the tip of a terrifying front three that have blasted in 82 goals between them this campaign alone.

"Our focus is on playing football and doing everything we can to win games, whether that is in the Premier League or the Champions League".

It was Drogba, of course, who scored the winning penalty for Chelsea against Bayern Munich in the dramatic 2012 Champions League final.

Liverpool FC are now four points behind the Red Devils in the race for second place in the table, with just four games left to play this season.

"The players are trying to help me a lot now to score goals, because they know now I am in for the Golden Boot".

There is still much work to do if Liverpool are to achieve that objective; Henderson is respectful of the challenge that Roma will present in the semi-final and believes Jurgen Klopp's side will need to raise their levels even further if they are to progress.

Hundreds of Roma fans queued outside club stores in the Italian capital overnight to be among the first to claim tickets for the Champions League semi-final second leg against Liverpool. Liverpool have scored only twice in the first half in the seven games in all competitions when Salah has not started. The last time they've lost two games against bottom placed sides in the same season was in 2010-11 (vs Wolves and West Ham).
