If you watch The Good Place (and you should, it’s not just good, it’s great), you’d know that “any place or thing in the universe can be up to 104% perfect. That’s how you got [Mohamed Salah].”

I might have been paraphrasing a bit, but Liverpool’s newest phenomenon, the 30-goal attacker who has taken the Premier League by storm this season, says he’s looking to somehow become even perfect-er.

In an interview with the official website, Salah said he’s proud of scoring 30 goals in all competitions in only 36 games, but wants more.

“It’s something huge, so I am very happy about it – but I have to carry on and keep looking forward to score many more goals,” he said. “In my mind I am always trying to improve and I’m doing it every single day. Every day I look at myself and try to improve myself all the time.

“I am happy at the moment, I feel good, and that’s the most important thing – and 100 per cent, there is still more to come.

“I’ve said before, the players and the coaches here make it easier for you,” he added. “I play alongside very good players, each one has different qualities, and that makes it easier for me. I am very happy to play alongside them; all of them they have helped me a lot to score goals. I am very happy to be with this group.”

With tons of games left still to play this season, I can’t imagine anyone would bet against Salah adding more goals to his tally. The record goal tally for a Premier League season is 31 goals in 38 games, a feat shared by Luis Suarez, among others. So far, Salah has struck true 22 times in the league and there’s still 11 games left to play.

Score 10 more in those 11 games and he’ll officially be the perfect-est according to math instead of just my heart.
