Irrespective of whether they clinch the Premier League trophy or not, Liverpool have achieved almost unprecedented success this season.
Two pillars of their joy have been attackers Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah and both have been neck and neck in attempting to outperform each other.
This hotly contested, friendly rivalry is set to reach its boiling point in the next few weeks. In the Premier League golden boot race, both are only separated by a single goal. Salah’s scored 21, while Mane’s just behind with 20 goals despite playing second-fiddle to the Egyptian. With four eyes on the prize, the next few weeks could help Liverpool fans enjoy some more beautiful attacking football.
Their deconstruction of Huddersfield proved just how hungry both stars are. While Mane scored two glorious headers and should’ve netted one more, Salah showcased his class with two sublime finishes. Both are different to each other, yet their healthy competitiveness in outdoing each other has been perfectly created by Jurgen Klopp.
While the Liverpool manager might miss out on the Premier League title due to bad luck, he’ll make history nonetheless. Klopp’s side has already achieved more points than many title-winning Premier League sides, with their scintillating attacking display ranking among the best in decades.
The German won’t allow bitterness to crave in at any moment. With crucial games to Barcelona along with a thrilling Premier League finale in store, he’ll need Salah as well as Mane at their hungriest and scoring consistently to end this dreamy season on the highest note possible.
