While Jurgen Klopp’s side have been unable to reach the final for the past three seasons, Salah has continued to prove himself as one of the most complete strikers in world football.

His form in the Premier League has been unmatched in recent years and he will want to be fit again when Liverpool take on Inter Milan in this season’s Champions League round of 16.

But how does the 29-year-old stack up against Europe’s top strikers since arriving on Merseyside? talkSPORT.com takes a look…

Champions League records since Mohamed Salah joined Liverpool in 2017

Mo Salah

Games: 49

Goals: 32

Aids: 10

The Liverpool talisman has a record that rivals the best in the world in Europe’s top competition.

With 49 games in the competition while wearing Liverpool red, Salah has racked up 32 goals and 10 assists in those games.

With a Champions League winner’s medal also to his name, the Egyptian’s credentials at the highest level are beyond doubt.

Cristiano Ronaldo

Games: 41

Goals: 35

Aids: 8

Ronaldo has set the standard in the Champions League in recent years.

His form for Real Madrid, Juventus and now Manchester United has seen him score 35 goals in 41 appearances since Salah moved to Liverpool, meaning the Egyptian has some work to do to nab the Portuguese star.

However, with time on his side, Salah hopes to surpass that record.

Now with Paris Saint-Germain, Messi’s rivalry with Ronaldo has seen him prove himself as one of the most influential players in the Champions League.

A tally of 31 goals and 11 assists in 40 appearances is quite impressive.

While PSG are hoping for glory this term, Salah hopes they can continue to compete with the Argentine in the next two years.

Karim Benzema

Games: 41

Goals: 25

Assists: 5

The Real Madrid star has been one of Europe’s best strikers for many years.

A tally of 25 goals in 41 appearances is good for the Frenchman but Salah is leading the way when it comes to goal contributions.

Benzema hopes to remedy this in the coming seasons.

Erling Haaland

Games: 19

Goals: 23

Assists: 3

The 21-year-old striker is on his way to becoming one of the best players in world football.

Despite making just 19 Champions League appearances since Salah’s move to Liverpool, the Dortmund leader has found the net 23 times so far, averaging more than a goal a game .

That total doesn’t quite match Salah’s at the moment, but give him a few years and he’ll be in the game.
