Mohamed Salah can emulate a feat last achieved for Liverpool by Roger Hunt by scoring against Aston Villa on Saturday.

The No.11 is one goal away from totalling 20 in the league for the third consecutive season; Hunt, in 1965-66, was the last man to do so for the Reds.

It would also make it the fifth campaign out of six with the club that Salah has hit 20 goals in the league. In the other season he netted 19.
