Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has said that he is eager to learn from his Liverpool teammate Mohamed Salah.
Mohamed Salah has broken a plethora of goalscoring records already this season having found the back of the net 32 times in his debut campaign, with Saturday’s opener against Newcastle United also seeing him score for a seventh game in succession.
Oxlade-Chamberlain’s own performances have also impressed in recent weeks, and he stressed the importance of following the example set by the “relentless” Salah.
“There is more in me. I know I have to keep pushing on. I can take so much from someone like Mo Salah,” Chamberlain is quoted as saying by Sky Sports News.
“Just look at him this season. It has been relentless and when someone can go from – obviously he is a great player – but to be competing with Harry Kane and Sergio Aguero for top goalscorer is something you have to learn from.
“People probably wouldn’t have expected that from him at the start of the season. To put himself in that position is down to the mentality he has to work hard and get the best out of himself. Every season there is always an example of people like that. You can take inspiration and I have got to keep pushing myself.
“I have nine games left in the league and we have the Champions League and I want to give the best of myself in those games and do as much as I can to help this team finish as high as we can.”
