Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah is targeting Ian Rush's club record for the most goals scored in a season.
Egypt international Salah reached the 40-goal mark when he scored in Liverpool's 3-0 win over Bournemouth on Saturday.
That leaves him seven goals short of Rush's impressive tally from the 1983/84 campaign, with four Premier League matches, a two-legged Champions League semi-final and possibly the final itself to come in which to get the goals.
"There's a big chance to break the record, to be number one for a club like Liverpool, it's something huge," said Salah.
"I will be very happy if I break it. I'm happy about 40, I want to keep scoring, I want to be number one for the record.
"It's always good when you see your name with legends of a club like Liverpool, it's a different feeling and I'm very happy about that.
"But I always try to look at myself and I want more. I have 40 now, I'm telling myself, 'Why not? You can be number one!'
"I will try my best to break the record but, as I've said before, we play as 11 players, I play for the team.
"It's not about individual awards, it's something for the team. I'm sure if I have a chance to give it to someone else to score, I will - it's not about me, it's about us."
