Jurgen Klopp has indicated that he will do everything he can to ensure Liverpool's Mohamed Salah wins the Golden Boot this season.
The Egypt international scored in Saturday's 3-0 win against Bournemouth to bring his goal tally in all competitions this season up to an incredible 40.
Salah moved to Anfield from Serie A side Roma last summer and now has 30 Premier League goals to his name – five more than Tottenham's Harry Kane, who failed to get on the scoresheet in his side's 3-1 home loss to Manchester City.
Klopp said of Salah reaching 40 goals: "It's good, impressive. What a number, wow. And what a number of goals we have scored as a team, around 100 as a team, I don't know, didn't count.
"A completely normal boy in that situation wants to be top of the scoring list, Golden Boot, it's completely normal, we will not be in his way.
"He knows that the way we play suits him. You can see that the boys are looking and searching for him a little bit too much. It's like 'give it to him', so we have to mix it up a little bit. He is the threat, but the ball is here, but it's all good.
"As a striker, you have to make decisions, if you score, everybody loves you, if you don't score then, hmm… then people start discussing, so it's all fine."
Salah is 1/8 to be the Premier League's leading goalscorer this season, while Kane is available at 5/1.
