Jamie Redknapp has insisted that Jurgen Klopp has no reason to be concerned about his misfiring Liverpool FC attack.

The Reds extended their unbeaten start to the Premier League season to nine games at Huddersfield Town in Saturday’s late kick-off.

Egypt international Mohamed Salah broke the deadlock in the first half with a precise finish after Xherdan Shaqiri’s through ball found the reigning PFA player of the year.

The 26-year-old has now scored four times in nine games in the Premier League to make a solid if unspectacular start to the Premier League campaign.

While Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino have chipped in with 10 of the Merseyside outfit’s 15 league goals so far, the trio have struggled with their combination play in the current campaign.

Indeed, the Liverpool FC attack are still to find their best form this season despite the three forwards combining to score a staggering 57 goals in the Premier League last term.

But former Reds captain Redknapp isn’t worried about the form of Salah, Firmino and Mane ahead of their return to Champions League action at Anfield on Wednesday night.

“It doesn’t worry me that Liverpool’s front line are struggling to fire,” Redknapp told the Daily Mail.

“Quite the opposite. The fact they are unbeaten and level on points with Manchester City at the top of the table despite not being as clinical in front of goal should strike fear into the rest of the Premier League.

“One day soon they will click. When that happens, one team will be due a walloping.”

Liverpool FC will look to return to winning ways in the Champions League on Wednesday night when Serbian side Red Star Belgrade make the trip to Anfield.

The Reds lost 1-0 to Napoli in Naples in their last European fixture earlier this month after Italy international Lorenzo Insigne netted a 90th minute winner.

Klopp’s side were 3-2 winners against Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain in their opening group stage fixture at Anfield last month.

Red Star Belgrade eased to a 2-1 win over Liverpool FC in their only previous meeting at Anfield in 1973 to become the first European team to win on the red half of Merseyside.

Liverpool FC lost 2-1 in the return leg of the quarter-final clash in Serbia to crash out of the competition.
