Cape Town - Liverpool winger Mohamed Salah has revealed that he expected to score plenty of goals in the Premier League this season, but doesn't think he is being arrogant about it.

The 25-year-old was considered a flop at Chelsea, where he was given few opportunities to prove himself, but moved to AS Roma in 2016 and made an instant impact, scoring 15 goals and providing 13 assists in 31 Serie A games.

Liverpool signed the Egyptian for £36.9 million in July last year and he has made a sensational start to his career at the Merseyside club, netting a staggering 21 goals in 25 Premier League appearances.

He told FourFourTwo: "I don't want to seem arrogant. But yeah, I expected it [scoring a lot of goals].

"When I was in Rome, I was comfortable there. I had two good seasons there. I was happy.

"I always try to take another chance. I always put myself under pressure.

"I didn't play for Chelsea when I was here three years ago. I came back here to show my football. I think I'm doing well.”
