Jurgen Klopp was full of praise for Mohamed Salah after his 37th goal of the season helped Liverpool FC to claim an impressive 2-1 comeback win over Crystal Palace on Saturday.

The Reds fell behind early on at Selhurst Park and went in 1-0 down at the break but Sadio Mane netted for the Reds in the 49th minute to level the game.

And Salah then scored the winner for Klopp’s men six minutes from time to wrap up all three points for the Reds and keep Liverpool FC on course for a top-four finish in the Premier League.

Salah has been in sensational form for Liverpool FC since his move to Anfield from AS Roma in the summer transfer window last year.

He has netted 29 goals and made nine assists in the Premier League for Klopp’s side and has also scored six times in the Champions League for the Reds.

And Klopp has admitted his delight at the way Salah has been performing this season as he reflected on Saturday’s win in London.

Speaking at his post-match news conference, Klopp said: “If you only score on a perfect day then you cannot score 37 goals, that’s clear.

“[He is] outstanding. Just having him on the pitch on a situation like that is good.

“Hopefully it stays like this, that’s the most important thing.”

Liverpool FC now turn their attentions back towards Champions League affairs and their crunch clash against Manchester City in the quarter-finals on Wednesday night.
