Mohammed Kudus continues to dazzle in the English Premier League with his dribbling wizardry after reaching a new milestone during West Ham's draw against Liverpool.

The Ghanaian international served an assist as the Hammers dented the Reds fading hopes of winning the English top flight trophy in Jurgen Klopp's final season as manager.

Kudus' perfectly measured cross was met by teammate, Jarrod Bowen, as the London-based club opened the scoring tally at the Olympic Stadium on Saturday, April 27.

However, a strike from Andy Robertson and an Alphonse Areola own-goal saw the Reds take the lead in the second half. Michail Antonio levelled for the Hammers with 13 minutes remaining.

In the draw, Kudus also became the first player to complete over 100 successful take-ons, according to Squawka.

His performance in his first season in England has seen him attract interest from notable clubs in Europe, with the Reds reportedly set to make a move for him in the summer transfer window.

Kudus has been identified as the ideal replacement for Mohamed Salah, with the Egyptian veteran expected to leave at the end of the season.

Meanwhile, the former Ajax Amsterdam star has netted seven goals and provided five assists in the English Premier League this season, per Transfermarkt.

Mohammed Kudus names favourite teammate

Earlier, Sports Brief reported that Kudus has named his best teammate and hailed Emmanuel Danso as the best player he had ever played with.

The Ghanaian star, who is enjoying an outstanding season with the Hammers, has played with several top stars including Man United's Antony.

However, the former Ajax man rolled back the clock to his academy days and gave a somewhat surprising answer to pick a best teammate of all time.

Salah involved in touchline spat with Klopp

Sports Brief also reported that Salah and Jurgen Klopp argued heatedly on the touchline during Liverpool's Premier League game at West Ham.

The Reds saw their top flight title ambitions slip away once again after a 2-2 draw at the London Olympic Stadium on Saturday afternoon, April 27.

Salah started on the bench as a strike from Robertson and an Areola own-goal were cancelled out by goals from West Ham's Bowen and Antonio.
