Salah, Liverpool coast to 6th straight EPL win

Liverpool's Egypt forward Salah, who had failed to score in his last two league games, bundled home a Shaqiri free kick that came back off the woodwork in first-half stoppage time for his third goal of the season.

The 26-year-old looked off the pace against the Parisians on Tuesday and was at fault for the Kylian Mbappe's equaliser, but Klopp insists the Egypt worldwide is only suffering a temporary dip in form.

Alisson retains his place in goal, and has a back-four of Trent Alexander-Arnold, Joel Matip, Virgil van Dijk and Andy Robertson in front of him.

Liverpool have already condemned one of the tournament favourites, Paris Saint-Germain, to defeat in their Champions League group opener on Tuesday night.

Despite creating Mohamed Salah's goal, Shaqiri was dragged off at the break.

Salah broke the Premier League record for most goals scored in a 38-game season in 2017-18 and has started the follow-up campaign with two goals in six appearances. "No-one remembers that, it is really no problem".

"Overall it was a solid performance and a good win and we knew it would be hard. It is completely normal everyone expects that".

"He has been fantastic in defensive situations in recent games".

"He is not for the squad for the weekend, of course, but we will see how soon we can try to involve him again".

"The most important thing is physically he is in a very good shape, which helps".

The chorus of You'll Never Walk Alone under the lights is enough to pick up even the least motivated of players and the enthusiasm goes hand in hand with Jurgen Klopp's gegenpressing style. They look really strong.
