Mohamed Salah insisted Liverpool's progression over the course of 2017-18 is 'just the start' as he outlined his happiness at Anfield.

The Reds have two more fixtures to play this campaign – a home encounter with Brighton & Hove Albion on Sunday, in which they can seal a top-four finish, before the Champions League final against Real Madrid.

Nevertheless, regardless of the outcome of those matches, Salah senses this is just the beginning of a successful period for Liverpool.

"I'm very happy here, I'm very happy and everything is fine," he told the Liverpool Echo.

"We have two games now, starting with a game on Sunday. It's a very important game and then the Champions League final but I'm very happy here.

"Of course, I have got ambitions for the future with Liverpool. As you can see, we had a great season and now we are in the Champions League final and everyone is excited.

"This is just the start. This is my first year here and it is the same for some other players. I didn't watch all the games last season of the team but this year we have had an unbelievable year.

"We are very comfortable about playing in the Champions League next season. On the way to the final we beat top teams like Manchester City and Roma. It is just the beginning for this team."

Salah was speaking on the night he collected three individual accolades following a stunning debut season with Liverpool, in which he has registered 43 goals in just 50 appearances so far.

The Egyptian picked up the club's Player of the Season and Players' Player of the Season trophies at an event at Anfield on Thursday night before jetting south to be presented with the Football Writers' Association's Footballer of the Year award in London.

"I am very happy to win these awards," Salah continued. "I had a good season but without the help of my teammates it would have been very difficult.

"We still have two games to go and we want to win them to make it a very good season. We have two finals to play and that's what we are focused on.

"We all try to help each other. We all try to give more and we all try to push each other. We are a team who fight for each other every day.

"I work hard to help my team. Now I want to finish the season in a good way.

"We want to qualify for the Champions League next season and then we want to win the Champions League final. We will play to win against Real Madrid, but for now we are thinking only about Brighton. Then we will have 14 days to prepare for the final.

"It's always special to play in any final. We know it's not going to be easy. But we will give 100 per cent to win the game and I am very excited about it."
