Should Mane score he will join Owen in joint-third place on the club’s all-time European goalscorers list with 22 goals, with only Steven Gerrard and Salah above them.
If Salah scores twice he will move into outright second place on the Reds all-time list of European scorers at Anfield – he currently has 13, with Rush on 14 and Gerrard on 24.
His next goal will see him become the 18th player to reach a century of goals for Liverpool in all competitions. He will join Kevin Keegan on exactly 100 goals.
Salah’s Anfield 100
Salah’s next appearance will be his 100th for Liverpool at Anfield. He has scored 71 times in the previous 99 in front of the Kop.
He has scored six goals in his last 19 home games.
Relying on Mo and Sadio?
Two players have scored all of Liverpool’s goals in their last five European outings – Salah has scored four, while Mane has two.
Last season, Salah scored six goals in Europe, netting one in six different matches.

They have scored in 12 of those 14 encounters, with only Roma and Atalanta keeping clean sheets.
