“There’s a few, I think, that you can put out there, but I think the amount of goals he’s scoring, the assists he’s getting, I think Mo Salah would definitely be up there.

“He is a big, big player who turns up in the big games and scores big goals. He’s setting the bar very, very high and I think as a player you want to be able to do that. He’s setting the bar very very high at the moment.”
