Currently, in his sixth season at Liverpool, Mohamed Salah has already cemented his legacy as a legend at the club.

Having won the Premier League, UEFA , , , UEFA Super Cup, and the FIFA Club , Salah has won every competition he's competed in during his time at Liverpool.

A holder of many club records in his six years at the club, Salah became Liverpool's leading goalscorer during its Premier League era with 134 goals and counting.

That all started in his first season at Liverpool in 2017/18.

Scoring on his debut in a thrilling 3-3 with was a sign of things to come from ‘The Egyptian King'.

The goals never seemed to dry up for Salah who broke the Premier League record for goals scored in a 38-game league season, as he netted 32 goals.

The forward also claimed 10 assists as he led the club to Champions League qualification and a Champions League final, which Liverpool lost 3-1 to .

Salah's performances were subject to high praise as he won both the PFA Players' Player of the Year and Premier League Player of the Season in 2017/18.

While he won no team trophies during his first season at the club, it was only the year after when Liverpool would break their seven-year silverware drought as they won the Champions League.

Perhaps the most talented player to ever play for Liverpool, Luis Suárez only spent three and a half years at the club and won just one trophy, the EFL Cup in 2012.

Despite the lack of team success, Suárez was a pure genius and played some of the greatest football Liverpool fans had ever watched.

His performances in the 2013/14 season are still talked about to this day.

Despite missing the first five games of the season due to suspension from the previous season, the Uruguayan still managed to net a then-record 31 goals in 33 Premier League games, while contributing 12 assists.

Like Salah, Liverpool did not silverware as they were pipped to the title by , however, Suárez was showered with individual awards.

He won the PFA Players' Player of the Year and Premier League Player of the Year as he cemented his place among football's elite as he secured a move to the following summer.

Both players recorded record-breaking individual success with a lack of team triumph, but who do you think had the greatest individual season in Liverpool's Premier League era?
