Jurgen Klopp's side had seemed firmly in control as Salah equalled Ian Rush's Liverpool record of scoring in 32 different games in a single season and collected his 31st league goal of the campaign, his 41st overall.

"We won't man-mark Salah, because we stopped Barcelona and Lionel Messi with teamwork, so we can stop Salah the same way".

West Bromwich Albion manager Darren Moore addressed the media after his side's hard fought draw with Liverpool yesterday, and responded to comments made bu Jürgen Klopp regarding the state of the pitch at the Hawthorns, as quoted by the Express & Star.

However, the Reds boss was quick to dodge the question and chose instead to highlight the player's progress at Anfield. "That's not interesting", Klopp said.

"It's clear he was really good at Roma and a very, very offensive midfield player".

Klopp insisted he was always confident Salah would do well at Anfield and when asked if he considered his signing a snip, he replied: "Is it a bargain?"

The rapid Liverpool attacker also added that he knows that a top 4 finish in almost guaranteed but finishing second would be even better, "For me, it's better to finish second".

"That's the business part of football". "I just told him that we are going to see each other in the semi's".

The Egypt global has scored 41 goals in 46 appearances for the Reds and will spearhead their bid to reach the Champions League final. You always take the risk that it doesn't work. "It's not like we have to tell the players this wasn't good enough and we can do better", Klopp told United Kingdom newspapers.
