In contrast, the Reds miracle of Istanbul, having knocked Chelsea out on the way just as they have done the same to City this season, will never be forgotten.
Former Liverpool forward Dirk Kuyt has said Roberto Firmino is a "special" player because of his ability to score goals and willingness to create chances for his teammates.
The pairings of Salah/Firmino and Salah/Mane have each combined for seven Premier League goals this season, just three short of the Premier League record for one duo in a single season for Liverpool (10 - Fowler/Collymore in 1995-96).
With 30 strikes, the Egyptian forward is now four goals in front of Tottenham Hotspur's Harry Kane in the race to be crowned as the Premier League's leading marksman for the campaign.
Mohamed Salah believes that he has become a more complete player since his time at Chelsea FC following his brilliant form for Liverpool FC this season. I want to break the Premier League record as that's my goal... I want to break both records! "We kept them quiet and I think the players can be very proud of their performance". Liverpool are the designated away team in the final, so that would only be possible if they get through to play Real Madrid in Kiev.
"I think you dream about those things when you are a kid, really". "To be number one for a club such as Liverpool, it's something huge".
And Salah certainly hasn't led Liverpool to its current position alone.
It will be worn for the first time on the final Premier League game of the season against Brighton. As last season's champions showed us last weekend, they have a lot of fight in them and can catch up on those 7 points. "But we knew we had to come here and impose ourselves". He has contributed to five goals (3 scored, 2 assisted) in his last five league appearances.
"Darren Moore has one win in two games, Alan Pardew had one in 18; Baggies supporters can be forgiven for thinking 'What if?'".
