Jurgen Klopp defends Mohamed Salah after poor run of form

Mohamed Salah's slow start to the season is not causing Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp to lose any sleep.

Liverpool will be looking to maintain their ideal start to the new season when they welcome Southampton to Anfield on Saturday afternoon.

The previous six have all ended in victory, with Klopp citing "greed", "aggression" and, latterly, "reinvented defensive skills" as key factors behind their flawless results to date in 2018-19. "It is completely normal there are times when an offensive player does not score".

"Finishing is something you can never take for granted", he added. We want him to score as often as possible. "Nobody remembers that. It is really not a problem". "But with Mo, everything is fine".

Ex-Arsenal defender Keown believes that Salah is not being as physical in possession anymore and speculated that the injury he sustained in the Champions League final to Real Madrid last season could still be playing on his mind.

A good result and performance against Southampton will be flawless for Fabinho to get his eye in and get his Liverpool career up and running before he goes on, undoubtedly, to become a crucial player for Klopp.

"I thought we were good". I don't think so. "He looks really fit".

"That's good, so good work from the fitness department".

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

After a brief cameo appearance against PSG on Tuesday, he could well be in line for a starting role on Saturday in order to rest Gini Wijnaldum and James Milner, who have played a lot of football already this season.

Opta point out that Liverpool are unbeaten in their last 23 Premier League games at Anfield (W15 D8), their best run in the competition since August 2009, and have kept a clean sheet in each of their last seven Premier League home games.

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

"He had, for sure, moments like this, but he's such a positive [person]". But he will always be a very important part of the squad because of the guy he is. "They create so many chances, they're a awful team to play against".
