Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has acknowledged that Mohamed Salah is not enjoying the best of periods after failing to score for the fourth game running. The Egypt international has been the Reds’ standout performer since the beginning of last season but he has recently gone into a shell with the inability to convert opportunities into goals.
“Salah is doing everything right up until the last second, we had our moments and we have to fight the circumstances and the opposition, the boys did that. Our derbies are over and we play all the others now. It was not a genius game but we got a point against an opponent who is double motivated.”
With the stalemate, Liverpool have lost the advantage for the Premier League crown for the first time since December, but Klopp has suggested that the Reds have no concerns chasing for the title. The Merseyside outfit are presently just one point behind Manchester City at the top but they are now dependent on the Citizens dropping points between now and the end of the season.
Liverpool return to Premier League action on Sunday where they are scheduled to face Sean Dyche’s Burnley at Anfield. Before that, Manchester City would have completed their home game against Watford and this could put the pressure on the Reds to deliver.
