Mohamed Salah detailed his determination to help deliver more silverware to Liverpool.
The No.11 has been in red-hot form this season with 12 goals in 11 appearances and last week was labelled the best player in the world by Jürgen Klopp.
Speaking to Sky Sports ahead of the Reds' trip to Manchester United, Salah revealed how he stays motivated as he searches for further personal and collective success.

The 2021 Ballon d'Or nominee said: "When I first started to play in Egypt, I said, 'I want to play in Europe, I want to have the best career from an Egyptian player.' Then once I got in Basel, I said, 'No, I want to do something really special.'
"It's always in my mind like, 'You are here now – what do you want next?' I'm always trying to find something [to] drive me hard and drive me to work really hard and achieve what I want.
"It's always the next thing for me because once you accept where you are and just relax, you can start going down. Once you have the next target and the next target, that's what can drive you. That's how you achieve great things.
"I'm just trying my best to help the team to win games, to win trophies. I like to win things with the club. I like the club here a lot, I love the club.
"I hate the word that we are underdogs or something, who can't win something because of that or that. I'm always saying that we have to win something because we play for Liverpool."
Klopp's comments came on the back of Salah's stunning Goal of the Season contender away at Watford.
Salah continued: "It sounds great to me but I think it's always opinion. I can't say I'm the best player in the world – some people agree, some people not.
"I'm just happy about my performance at the moment, but I would always say it's opinion.
"It's always the ambition to be the best player in the world. I don't have to lie. It's something that drives me to work really hard and just try to be the best version of myself.
"In my head, I'm the best player all the time. I'm trying to have that confidence in my head. It doesn't matter if some people agree with you, some people not."
Salah's match-winning penalty at Atletico Madrid in midweek saw him become the first Liverpool player to ever score in nine consecutive fixtures.
His ability to constantly raise his goalscoring levels is down to hours and hours of hard work on the training pitch.
"I'm always looking at where I can improve," he said. "The goal against Man City was my right foot, a tight angle – I'm always practising after training, before training in the gym.
"I'm always thinking, 'If I'm in this situation, what can I do? How can I finish well? How can I pass the ball to someone to score?'
"The staff here work with me well to practise after training – finishing, cutting inside with the left foot. I'm not thinking I can relax, I'm always looking to improve."
