Henderson insists Liverpool won't underestimate Roma in Champions League semi-final

Liverpool are third on 70 points and are nearly assured of a Champions League place, although as it stands they need six points from their last four matches to be certain mathematically.

Gomez has been out of action since sustaining an ankle injury during the early stages of England's friendly with the Netherlands on March 23.

The 25-year-old hopes he has gone a long way towards proving his doubters wrong from his time at Stamford Bridge.

The Reds then face Roma in the Champions League on Tuesday night in their semi-final clash at Anfield. One goal to go, right?

Salah, who played with Drogba briefly during his time at Chelsea, has gone goal-crazy in his second crack at English football and scored his 30th league goal of the season in the 3-0 win over Bournemouth on Saturday.

In a message to Salah on Instagram, Drogba said: 'It was just a matter of days before this guy put my goal record as number one African Premier League top scorer to bed.

"The way we play is very good, and you can see the fans are very happy and I feel very good about that, I feel they want me to win something".

If Salah reaches 31 Premier League goals, he will tie the record for most goals scored in a 38-game season, jointly held by Cristiano Ronaldo, Alan Shearer and Luis Suarez. Of course I have, as many other players have, but one step at a time.

The former Chelsea, Fiorentina and Roma winger is favourite to pip Manchester City midfielder Kevin De Bruyne to the Professional Footballers' Association Player of the Year award on Sunday, having been named in the organisation's divisional best XI of the season this week.

Jay Rodriguez netted the winning tally in the 73rd minute, but relegation looms as the Baggies remain at the foot of the table with 24 points and four matches remaining. 31 goals in a 38-game season. Much love and blessings, like I said before, the best is yet to come'.

We need to do the opposite - look at the reasons why West Brom pose a serious threat to the Reds this weekend.
