I would be shocked if Liverpool played a strong team against West Brom.
With four Premier League matches and a two-legged Champions League semi-final to come, the Egypt star has a good chance of achieving his goal at the end of a dream first season with Liverpool following his move from Chelsea a year ago.
Fellow countryman Mido did concede that he was unsure when Salah returned to the English top-flight last summer for £39million following his disappointing spell at Chelsea.
He just needs one more to equal Ronaldo's record for the most goals in a 38-games season, jointly held by the Portuguese, Alan Shearer and Luis Suarez.
"There's a big chance to break the record, to be number one for a club like Liverpool, it's something huge", he told Premier League Productions.More news: Canelo Alvarez handed six-month ban for failed drug test
Salah Anfield heroics have been in stark contrast to his hard spell at Chelsea, for whom he managed just 13 leagues with two goals to his name before being loaned to Fiorentina and eventually Roma.

Not that it matters a great deal, but how can you snub a man who leapt two clear metres into the air to thrash home an electrifying bicycle kick? I'm happy about 40, I want to keep scoring, I want to be No. 1 for the record. I have 40 now, I'm telling myself, 'Why not?
"The players are trying to help me a lot now to score goals, because they know now I am in for the Golden Boot. I can't forget what the team gives me, the way we play, the way they support me inside and outside of the pitch".
"But before, when I was second to Kane, I had a chance to score, I gave it to Bobby [Roberto Firmino] and he scored".
