Liverpool striker Salah scoffs: Some people always complain about me...

Liverpool ace Mohamed Salah has taken a fresh swipe at his critics.

Salah is set to be available for their Champions League clash with Atalanta.

Asked about his hopes of a third Golden Boot this season, the Reds forward had a message for his critics.

"I think it is hard to do it the first time, but it is harder to do it for the second time and even harder to do it for the third time," said Salah.

"Some people will always complain. They will say 'he is good at that but he is not good in that part'.

"You just need to carry on and do your things and I am very proud that I am doing that.

"Goals, assists... I feel good about it and while it is a little bit harder, it is our job and we need to go out there and perform.

"It was important to win those individual awards, but I am always saying that the Premier League, the Champions League and team trophies come first.

"The ambition for me is to win both. We won the Champions League alone and then the Premier League last season. My ambition is to win both (in the same season)."
