Mohamed Salah has vowed to continue ignoring the moaners, writes Ian Doyle.

Salah is expected to be in contention for Wednesday’s Champions League visit of Atalanta having missed the weekend win over Leicester City after testing positive for coronavirus.

The Egyptian will hope to continue his goalscoring form after netting 10 goals in 13 games – his best start to a season at Liverpool.

Eight have come in the Premier League with Salah in the early running for the Golden Boot award he won outright in 2018 and shared 12 months later.

And when asked about his hopes for a personal hat-trick, the Reds forward had a message for his critics.

Salah said:

“I think it is hard to do it the first time, but it is harder to do it for the second time and even harder to do it for the third time.

“Some people will always complain. They will say ‘he is good at that but he is not good in that part’.

“You just need to carry on and do your things and I am very proud that I am doing that.

“Goals, assists… I feel good about it and while it is a little bit harder, it is our job and we need to go out there and perform.

“It was important to win those individual awards, but I am always saying that the Premier League, the Champions League and team trophies come first.

“The ambition for me is to win both. We won the Champions League alone and then the Premier League last season. My ambition is to win both (in the same season).”
