Liverpool want to be the ugliest team to play against, says Klopp

Xherdan Shaqiri could make his first Premier League start after Jurgen Klopp admitted to making a "mistake" in how he has handled the Liverpool midfielder.

Liverpool have won all six of their matches this season and sit second in the Premier League ahead of hosting Southampton on Saturday.

Salah has appeared to lack some sharpness following his disappointing World Cup campaign with Egypt in Russian Federation during the summer.

The injury-plagued England global, who spent the second half of last season on loan at West Brom, returned to the starting line-up in midweek and rewarded his manager's faith with the opening goal in a dramatic 3-2 win over PSG.

However, Salah has failed to find the net in his last three games in all competitions and has struck a frustrated figure.

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

"On the defensive side the last two games were outstanding, ideal from him", said Klopp, according to the official Liverpool website.

"It is a completely normal situation for an offensive player that they have times when they don't score". But he is still a threat. Intense game, it was all good, fantastic game.

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

"I never do that and the players should never do that, only the supporters are allowed to do that!"

In addition, Joe Gomez has impressed as the Dutchman's partner at centre-back, and the new-found solidity has Klopp in good spirits - even if they did concede two against Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League.

However, his tally of two goals from six matches in all competitions compares to three from half-a-dozen this time a year ago.

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.

"I said it a few times that only in football it sounds like 32 was a massive age". Will it be 40 goals at the end of the season?
