Klopp: Salah is in form

Klopp: Salah is in form

"None of the results we have had this season would have been possible without the greed you have seen, without the aggression you see".

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has dismissed claims of Mohamed Salah being off his game.

"The problem for Liverpool is the fans don't get up for the league games in the same way as they do in the Champions League", Barton told talkSPORT.

"Obviously it's big for us to compete against teams like that, but we see ourselves at that level".

"The best news I have had in the last two weeks is how we have changed or reinvented again our defensive skills", he went on.

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

"He's taking his time like he did last season". But he is still a threat, had fantastic situations in both games and he is in good shape.

"Of course, of course everyone expects that, that is clear", he said.

Consequently, the former Chelsea striker will not be present when The Reds face Southampton at Anfield on Saturday afternoon.

"Yes, he lost the ball before we conceded the second [PSG] goal, but it was a very intense game and things like this happen constantly", Klopp said. That is good and good work from the fitness department.

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.

"Yes, he [Firmino] is ready... so far there is no reason to think about Bobby, it's about thinking about how can we line up in general differently".

Liverpool and Southampton have had a fair few dealings with each other in recent times and it has mainly been involving Saints players heading to Merseyside to sign for the Reds.

The former Republic of Ireland global 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.
