Mohamed Salah's Liverpool hot streak propels him towards Premier League scoring records

Mohamed Salah could be seen practicing his finishing during Liverpool training on Thursday

The ESPN FC guys look ahead to the Champions League quarterfinal first leg between Liverpool and Manchester City. "Germany in 1990 didn't celebrate winning the World Cup like this", said Klopp.

Salah, who once again proved to be the Reds' match victor with a crucial late goal at Crystal Palace Saturday, was the surprise name on a number of ballot papers in the Egyptian presidential election.

Liverpool go into the tie as underdogs but will believe that they can get a result as they remain the only side in the Premier League this season to have toppled Pep Guardiola's side.

"I think Mo would deserve it 100 percent", Klopp told his club's website.

Salah may not have had one of his more eye-catching performances against struggling Crystal Palace but he was on hand to score the victor, producing a delightful first touch to bemuse Mamadou Sakho and fire home his 29th Premier League goal of the campaign, equalling the league record of scoring in 21 matches of a 38-game season.

"I understand completely the people are happy and the enthusiasm to win the league at home against them".

Salah is likely to jostle with City midfielder Kevin de Bruyne for the Professional Footballers' Association Players' Player of the Year award. It's the quarter-finals of the Champions League and I've never played at this stage before.

"Did we think before the second we would win 4-3? No".


It was a freakish day for Liverpool's Senegalese superstar, who was booked for diving, had a goal ruled out due to offside, scored for real, picked the ball up after he thought he was fouled and then was hauled off by Klopp before the referee sent him off first.

It happened to Liverpool the first time they met when Mané picked up a red card and in the second meeting to City, who were discomforted by Liverpool's press.

"The easy thing is to give a free-kick to Mane to be honest and that was what it was in my opinion", said Gallagher. Both goals we scored today were fantastic goals; both were team goals, both were outstandingly good play.

After the 3-1 win at the weekend, Guardiola said: "Of course I want to win against United at home".

Is the Liverpool vs Manchester City game available online?

Klopp's "gegenpressing" style, honed at Borussia Dortmund, involves a rapid swarming of opponents' territory when they lose the ball, and a high defence to limit space and make good use of high-energy attacking full backs.
