Klopp: Salah is in form

"It is completely normal there are times when an offensive player does not score".

"The start was good for the team and also him as well".

"Finishing is something you can never take for granted".

"The big bonus for Liverpool from Tuesday's Champions League win over Paris St-Germain has to be Daniel Sturridge's performance, because he did really well", Lawrenson told BBC Sport.

"I'd love to play in their front three, I'd fit in flawless!"

"At the end of the season we will see how it was, not at the beginning".

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.

Jurgen Klopp: 'Daniel Sturridge was everywhere for Liverpool'
"Every year you start new and in sports - if you want to go far - you have to get the experience you can to do a special thing". Why can Liverpool put their players into line and not here? And that's what we've done by beating both of them [PSG and Spurs].

Ahead of Saturday's home match against Southampton, Klopp praised Shaqiri for the attitude he has shown as he waits for his chance.

"Yes, he [Firmino] is ready", Klopp said. I don't think so.

Liverpool will continue to be without Dejan Lovren as the defender is still not considered fit enough to return despite resuming full training earlier this week having overcome a niggling pelvic injury.

Liverpool face the prospect of four games in 11 days with a double header against Chelsea, who they meet in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday, before a crucial Champions League clash away at Napoli.

"Ox is a different situation but it's so nice to have Ox around", added Klopp.

As well as getting his name on the scoresheet, Matip played some good passes forward. We are really waiting for him without making pressure on him and we know that it will take a long time.

While the suggestion from other quarters has been that Salah, like many other players, is worn out after a busy season and the World Cup, Keown has suggested it is a mental issue for the 26-year-old.
