Danny Murphy believes Mohamed Salah has proven the difference in Liverpool FC’s Champions League campaign.

The Reds are on the brink of winning the Champions League for the first time since 2005 after Jurgen Klopp’s men booked their place in the semi-finals on Tuesday night.

Liverpool FC were 5-1 aggregate winners against Premier League leaders Manchester City in the Champions League quarter-finals.

Salah broke the deadlock in the first leg before goals from Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Roberto Firmino sealed a 3-0 win.

The Merseyside outfit fell behind in the second minute at The Etihad in the return leg but Salah equalised in the second half before Firmino sealed the win.

Salah has score nine times in 11 games in the Champions League in all competitions this season to help Liverpool FC reach the last four.

The Egyptian’s former club AS Roma stand in the way of Liverpool FC and a place in the Champions League final against Bayern Munich or Real Madrid.

Former Liverpool FC star Murphy believes Salah has proven the big difference in the Champions League for the Reds this season.

“It is incredible that Salah has achieved so much and could be the difference between Liverpool winning the Champions League or not – that is how important he is to them,” Murphy told BBC Sport.

“His finish in the second leg of the quarter-final was just incredible and there have been so many moments like that throughout the season.

“To actually be talking about anyone other than a City player this season shows you how amazing he has been, and he has not let up.”

Liverpool FC beat AC Milan on penalties in the Champions League final in 2005 despite trailing 3-0 at half-time.
