Yet as Liverpool walked off the rain-soaked pitch at Molineux on Friday, after ensuring Liverpool retained top spot in the Premier League on Christmas Day by virtue of their 2-0 win against Wolverhampton Wanderers, Salah had also secured the distinction of becoming the league's leading scorer this season.

"Forty-eight points before Christmas, it's just insane, but there are other teams there as well", said the Liverpool manager, whose side's lead will be cut back to one if Manchester City win at home against Crystal Palace on Saturday.

"But there are other teams".

"If all the other teams win tomorrow, then I think three or four teams have more than 40 points, which is really exceptional". At the end of the season, you are probably going to need 105 to be champion.

Even Tottenham, in third, are not far off with 39 points and the chance to cut their deficit to the Reds back down to six if they can defeat Everton on Sunday. "We can not start a party". We stopped playing football, and it wasn't the most exciting game anymore but we kept the ball.

Eight of the past nine teams to be top on Christmas Day have gone on to win the title, with Liverpool in 2013-14 the exception.

But respect is very important. "Our game today was similar to what we have played before, but the result was different". I think it's the same there [at Manchester United ]. "And in a derby, this emotion is maybe more great".

It was the home side that looked most like scoring in the opening quarter of an hour and the sodden conditions nearly came to their aid shortly afterwards when Romain Saiss's deflected effort was spilled into a unsafe area by Alisson Becker, who was fortunate to see Fabinho there to clear the danger.

"I don't remember many games that we've won by a large margin, which demonstrates the competitiveness". Nobody has been talking up Salah's performance this season; instead, the narrative has been about him searching for last year's form, with the shoulder injury sustained in the Champions League final against Real Madrid often cited as a factor in his slow start.

"In this period, we don't train too much, but we know how to grind things out and keep things tight".

Liverpool are still unbeaten in the league this season and have conceded a league-best seven goals.

'I think the biggest difference [to 13/14] is the clean sheets, ' he said. We were really quick in mind around two set pieces which was brilliant. "I only just try to answer in a polite way". It was a good game, a deserved win'.
