Liverpool's Mohamed Salah 'fine' despite lack of goals - Jurgen Klopp

Liverpool's Mohamed Salah 'fine' despite lack of goals - Jurgen Klopp

Salah scored Liverpool's opening goal of the season against West Ham in August, but has not scored since his strike in the Reds' win over Brighton four weeks ago. Nobody remembers that, so it's really no problem.

Salah damaged his shoulder after he was dragged to the ground by Sergio Ramos during the first half of the Champions League game in Kiev. But we see ourselves at that level.

"It was not an easy game because PSG are one of the best teams in the world, but we played very well and deserved to win".

Whether that had any influence or not Firmino walked into Melwood on the morning of the match and told Klopp he was fit to play. It was an intense game, it was a fantastic game by him, to be honest, so that's the best news and so now we know more about that. You don't always concede a goal after that but this time we did.

"The defensive side the last two games were outstanding, perfect", he said. It was not the reason for taking him off, of course not, I am fine with him and I think he is fine with me.

Big Ben: I'm not anxious about Antonio Brown
It could also be due to a tweet from a former Steelers PR employee that insinuated Brown wasn't as good as he really is. Roethlisberger, who does not have social media accounts, said Scarpino's assertion was not true.

While last season all the praise was lavished on Liverpool's front three, so far it has been the midfield which has been winning all the plaudits.

At a press conference, Klopp told reporters: "It's not just this season, past year he had most assists in Champions League".

The chorus of You'll Never Walk Alone under the lights is enough to pick up even the least motivated of players and the enthusiasm goes hand in hand with Jurgen Klopp's gegenpressing style. "I would never do that, the players should never do that - only the supporters are allowed to do that". "Really, he's in good shape and the most important thing is that physically he is in a very good shape and that helps".

"Wow, that is a crisis", said Klopp, whose side host Southampton on Saturday (15:00 BST kick-off).
