Alexander-Arnold says Liverpool players eager to help Salah in Golden Boot battle

Liverpool defender Trent Alexander-Arnold says the players are ready to help Mohamed Salah win the Golden Boot.

After his brace in victory over Brighton, Salah is now on 19 Premier League goals, three behind leading scorer Jamie Vardy, who has scored three goals in the last two matches to ease additional pressure from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Danny Ings.

While Liverpool remained focused on hunting down Manchester City's record points tally of 100, Alexander-Arnold hinted the Reds are also keen for Salah to win the Golden Boot.

"He has his targets, he's around the Golden Boot [race] and it's something he wants to retain," Alexander-Arnold told BBC Sport.

"He's a world-class player who scores so many goals for us and we try to get him on the board as much as possible."
