Solanke Out Of Liverpool, Southampton Fixture

Solanke Out Of Liverpool, Southampton Fixture

Salah avoided the worst drought of his short Liverpool career in first-half added time thanks to his anticipation and no shortage of Shaqiri brilliance, netting his 30th goal in his last 31 Anfield appearances.

The Egypt worldwide scored 44 goals last season but has found the net only twice so far this season, although that is similar to a year ago when he had three from half-a-dozen games.

The lead was doubled in the 22nd minute as defender Joel Matip rose highhest to head home from a corner on his first start of the season.

Mohamed Salah has scored only two goals in six games this season and is now on a three-game goal drought - his joint-longest run without a goal since joining Liverpool.

Liverpool are now second in the Premier Leauge table with 15 points from 15, and their next game Southampton on Saturday, September 22 at Anfield. It's really no problem.

Since joining City from Atletico Madrid in 2011, the 30-year-old Argentine has helped the club win three Premier League titles and three League Cups.

"He is not for the squad for the weekend, of course, but we will see how soon we can try to involve him again".

In the same period Southampton have scored none or one in 16 of their 21 away games, which suggests not much should be expected of them especially with Ings unavailable. He is still a threat, made fantastic situations in both our last games. He's in good shape and scoring is not something that can be taken for granted.

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. "He looks really fit".

The former Republic of Ireland worldwide established a reputation as one of the Premier League's most prolific strikers during his time with Tottenham, but had limited success after moving to Liverpool for £19m in 2008.
