After a shoulder injury in May's Champions League final, Salah had a disappointing World Cup and on his return to English football does not yet look like the player who terrorised defences, scoring nearly at will. Let's use the momentum and create a new momentum.
Five wins out of five has seen Liverpool launch into second place in the Premier League, while Southampton have only notched up one league win all season, but two draws and two defeats has left Mark Hughes' side on five points and they are now sitting in 13th spot. He can play football, and that makes him a pretty valuable player. I don't think so, ' Klopp said ahead of Saturday's match against Southampton at Anfield.
Jurgen Klopp has challenged Liverpool to become the "ugliest team" to play against in the Premier League.
The 26-year-old has played just 32 minutes for Liverpool this season, with the likes of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino being relied upon in attack by Klopp. That is more my mistake than his.
'I made different decisions but his time will come, that is for sure.
Southampton manager Mark Hughes says Liverpool "need" to win the Premier League title this season to continue growing as a club.
It's been his performances that have anxious most, though; Salah has snatched at chances and generally looked as though he lacks the flow of past year.
"Last year he had three in six, this year two in six".
"On the defensive side ideal, and it is so important in these games especially, so that says everything about him - that he is really ready to work for the team in these moments". If he is a little bit further on, he shoots in the bottom corner. But past year he missed chances.
"It's much too early to talk to him constantly about what and when and stuff like that". 'So long as he is working as he is in this moment, everything will be fine. At the end of the season we will see how it was, not at the beginning.
