Mohamed Salah: Liverpool boss not expecting goals repeat

22 September 2018

"The problem that other teams have is that, already when you play against them, you're on the back foot straight away, because of how quick they are and how direct they are when they're getting in behind with balls in-between the lines".

However, his tally of two goals from six matches in all competitions compares to three from half-a-dozen this time previous year. I don't think so, ' Klopp said ahead of Saturday's match against Southampton at Anfield.

"No one remembers that (how he started last season)".

"On the defensive side, the last two games he was outstanding, perfect", Klopp continued.

"It's a pretty normal situation for an offensive player that they don't score [sometimes]".

"He has been fantastic in defensive situations in recent games".

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 never do that, and the players never do that-only the supporters can do that!

But if Klopp isn't anxious, the fans needn't be either; Salah is clearly an elite player and he's nearly certainly yet to play a pivotal role in the Reds' season.

"Of course. Of course everyone expects that, that is clear. But that's completely normal that everybody expects that", he told reporters on Friday.

"We don't expect that". So, the start was good for us as a team and for him as well. Will it be 40 (goals again) at the end of the season? The start was good for the team and also him as well.

The Switzerland global was the surprise package in Liverpool's summer transfer dealings with the club capitalising on a £12.5million release clause to take him from relegated Stoke.

"Was it already like he finished last season, the Premier League season especially?"

Klopp gave strong consideration to starting him against Paris Saint-Germain last Tuesday - the idea, with Roberto Firmino injured, was to play Shaqiri out wide and move Mohamed Salah into a central position - but the time may now be right to introduce the 26-year-old.

"What was it a year ago?"

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.

"Dejan is close", said Klopp.
