Liverpool had their first Premier League draw at Anfield on Saturday evening against Burnley as they continued to go through the top-flight season unbeaten at home.

The Premier League leaders have had their campaign done and dusted from the perspective of being champions.

However their quest for individual prizes and team records is still on with three matches left to wrap up the season.

Salah is the Reds leading goalscorer this  season who is chasing for the Premier League Golden Boot with 19 goals and three behind Leicester's Jamie Vardy who's at the top of the chart.

The Egyptian had numerous chances to add to his numbers against Burnley but failed to hit one pass goalkeeper Nick Pope who was pure class through out the game.

Speaking on the Soccer Saturday show on Sky Sports Glen Johnson said Salah took too often, the easy option that cost the game to be levelled in a 1-1 draw.

"I think he was [trying too hard in the quest for the Golden Boot], literally that. He was trying to guide the ball in as supposed to just getting through it sometimes.

"And we know that he is on track to fight for this Golden Boot. So, I think he got into a couple of opportunities where, months ago, he would have scored without even thinking about it.

"But today, he did look like he was trying to guide it in and sort of take the easy option rather than sometimes put his foot through it."
