Sounding the alarms at Anfield: Salah off injured against City

Sounding the alarms at Anfield: Salah off injured against City

"About Mo, I don't know in the moment", Klopp told reporters.

De Bruyne has seven Premier League goals and 15 assists to his name this season and has been the driving force behind City's march to the Premier League title.

Sadio Mane completed a dream first-half performance for Liverpool as he latched onto Salah's inviting cross and headed past Ederson for a 3-0 lead.

City's team bus was caught up in a hostile welcome on the way to the grounds with bottles and missiles thrown at the coach as it arrived at Anfield before the 3-0 defeat against Liverpool in the first leg of the Champions League quarterfinals.

Liverpool's players were spurred on by the raucous atmosphere at Anfield on Wednesday night, and De Bruyne is hoping his side will experience similar in front of their own fans next week.

De Bruyne could well have voted for global compatriot Romelu Lukaku up top but we'll just have to wait and see with that, while the Belgian midfielder understandably opted for Liverpool talisman Mo Salah as his Player of the Year.

"Breaking windows is probably not good but who am I to say something? But I think if supporters do that without being violent then I think it's OK". "It's hard because the circumstances are different but we will be up for it".

"It's football. You never know what is going to happen".

"First is Saturday, it's another game". We have a lot of confidence in our qualities so we'll see.
