“It has been different for me this season, just because it is the Premier League and it is a step up. You have to be more focused and prepared, always alert,” Tomori told Sky Sports.

“In the Championship you have a lot of different strikers – some love it in the air or like to go in behind. But then I’m playing against [Roberto] Firmino and he’s dropping deep into midfield. Things happen a lot faster and mistakes are punished more harshly.

“Firmino was probably the most difficult [to play against] – along with Salah. Every time they got the ball, I was thinking, ‘This is a challenge but this is where I want to be – this is a chance to prove that I can play at this level’,” he added.

Salah and Firmino have both been an integral part of Liverpool’s recent success, scoring a combined total of 31 goals in all competitions this season.

The pair have also won three trophies with the Reds, including the UEFA Champions League, the UEFA Super Cup, and the FIFA Club World Cup.
