Klopp: Salah Has Nothing To Prove In

LIVERPOOL ENGLAND- DECEMBER 27 Jurgen Klopp manager of Liverpool gives instructions to Sadio Mane of Liverpool during the Premier League match between Liverpool and Stoke City at Anfield

Jurgen Klopp's men do have the bizarre statistic of being remarkably solid at home, with their 1-1 draw with Chelsea at the weekend only the second time they have let a goal in at Anfield in the league in 2017/18, but the fact remains that overall they are someway behind their rivals in showing resolve at the back.

Mane was restricted to only a couple of minutes when Klopp sent him on for Oxlade-Chamberlain in the 89th minute, which appeared to result in a bust-up at full-time.

Stoke fans complained Liverpool right-back Joe Gomez had allowed the ball to run out of play before crossing to Solanke, whose pass allowed Mane to dink his fifth goal of the club season over Lee Grant. Willian said, smiling, "It was beautiful".

The Reds signed Salah in a £39m deal from Serie A giants AS Roma in the summer transfer window to bolster their attacking options. "It is not a big thing; it's a little bit of little bit of swelling and we have to figure out what it is exactly". "But it was friendly, it was not because I was unhappy or something else". We thought against Chelsea maybe we needed fresh legs and I thought it worked quite well. "He may be 36 but he continues to have a major impact on games, as he has proved on numerous occasions this season".

All managers make mistakes and Klopp made a few that contributed to Liverpool dropping a couple of points against Chelsea on Saturday.

Klopp also provided an update on his crocked players, with defender Dejan Lovren closing on a return to action and midfielder Emre Can available. But I think we are going 100 per cent in the right direction.

"We need it, we need it, we need it. All the other teams, the intensity is getting higher".

Alexis Sanchez's late penalty gave Arsenal a 1-0 win at Burnley on Sunday that lifted them into fourth place on 25 points, one ahead of local rivals Tottenham Hotspur.

To be fair, a referee really shouldn't refuse a substitution because he believes it is to waste time, as he is not in a position to judge that, and surely adding time on would be a better solution?

The last few weeks were troublesome for the forward as he recovered from a hamstring injury.
