Klopp sets his sights on Liverpool club-record 97 point total

Klopp sets his sights on Liverpool club-record 97 point total

There had been a lot of talk from outside the club that Salah was struggling slightly this season but he has come up with two outstanding goals in the last two league matches to silence the critics once more. I don't want to minimise that but I (also) loved the first goal - good team play, good cross, good header.

"If City lost and we find out five minutes before the game that's not a help".

"We know that they get at least two players back, Pepe and (Hector) Herrera, so they will be an interesting and hard challenge". 97 (possible). Let's try. We didn't lose it here or there. "Only weak people and idiots bring something like this up".

Coincidentally former captain Gerrard, who is now Rangers manager, visited Liverpool's training ground on Friday. "We can expect very odd results in last month, because we are tiring like all the other teams". "Robbo (Andy Robertson) slipped and nothing happened, so it's not a Liverpool thing".

Sarri spoke of his initial game plan after the match, stating that it was his side's intention to get to 65 minutes level with Liverpool.

"It immediately reminded me of the 4-3 against Borussia Dortmund, only Hendo [Jordan Henderson] instead of Millie [James Milner] and Sadio instead of Dejan [Lovren], but a similar situation with this wonderful cross in that area and really good team play".

"But I am really happy with the performance because we stayed in the match very well".

After Liverpool went 2-0 up Maurizio Sarri chose to change tactics and put Gonzalo Higuain up front and moved Eden Hazard back on to the wing.

Salah seems to be back in form and has now hit the back of the net for the second time in two games. "Two or three months ago we would not have done".
