Jurgen Klopp sends message to Mo Salah after Liverpool FC’s draw at Man United
Jurgen Klopp admits he expected more from Mo Salah after Liverpool FC's goalless draw with Man United
Jurgen Klopp has admitted that he expected more from Mohamed Salah after Liverpool FC’s goalless draw at Manchester United on Sunday.
The Egypt international was not at his best at Old Trafford as Liverpool FC failed to break down a well-organised Manchester United side and were forced to settle for a point.
Salah has been one of the main driving forces behind Liverpool FC’s Premier League title challenge this season, and he scored 17 goals and made seven assists in 27 top flight games this term.
However, he was unable to help Liverpool FC to find a goal on Sunday and he ended up being substituted by Klopp in the 79th minute at Old Trafford.
And Klopp has admitted that Salah was not at his very best as Liverpool FC dropped two points from Sunday’s game.
Speaking at his post-match news conference, Klopp said: “Mo knows he can play better than he did today, we know he can.
“Two weeks ago, when we played against Bournemouth, that was amazing.
“Against Bayern he was up against Alaba, a world-class player himself, they are not blind. Each player in the world is to defend; it’s about how we use him, how we play him, how we move and all that stuff.
“Today obviously, Lindelof and Shaw together did a pretty good job. I have to talk here about the game, but I am not too much interested in that game anymore because I am thinking about what can I do so that we are really spot-on on Wednesday night.
“Nothing really serious happened today – we came here, we wanted to win that game with all the talks around and stuff like that about United being in a fantastic moment.”
The result lifted Liverpool FC back to the top of the Premier League table and left them a point ahead of Manchester City with the same games played.
The Reds return to action on Wednesday night with a home clash against Watford as they look to try and get back to winning ways.
