Mo Salah has 31 league goals this season and is just one away from setting a new Premier League scoring record over a 32 game season

Mo Salah

He took comfort from his men finishing the game unscathed ahead of Wednesday's Champions League semi-final second leg against Roma.

Liverpool's goalless draw with Stoke, following on from the 2-2 draw at rock-bottom West Brom last weekend, means that Champions League qualification for next season is still not secure.

Mane failed to come through a late fitness test for Saturday's Premier League match against Stoke City and sat out a drab 0-0 draw with the struggling Potters at Anfield.

But Klopp confirmed after the game he was fine and also complained after a claim for a penalty was not given for an apparent foul from Pieters, where he had a hold of Salah's arm inside the area.

The Senegal winger will be fit for the trip to Rome and Klopp revealed there are a couple of players carrying slight injuries, including captain Jordan Henderson.

"It looked like a clear penalty in play and I've just looked back on the telly and it's blatant".

MF Trent Alexander-Arnold, 6 - Started brightly and could have scored after a surging run into the box to collect a pass from Salah. We scored an offside goal, we were obviously in charge of the game but not brilliant, but that's normal in that situation.

Said Stoke manager Paul Lambert: "We deserved it. We came with a good game plan and played a really good game; the commitment, throwing bodies into challenges, and we might have nicked it".

Trying to shackle the prolific Egyptian, just a few days after arguably his best performance of an outstanding season, was a daunting task for the Dutchman. "He was limping from that moment on". "I always love to play alongside these great players because we understand each other so well".

Alberto Moreno was the next to try his luck after finding himself in space outside the area, but his low long-range effort zipped a couple of yards wide of the far post.

The whole Liverpool team were incensed when the officials ignored their appeals for a penalty when the ball appeared to strike Erik Pieters' hand late on.

Salah was sent clear and when he clipped the ball over Jack Butland the Liverpool supporters were celebrating, only for disbelief to dawn when the shot did not hit the target.

Crystal Palace moved to the brink of English Premier League safety by beating 10-man Leicester 5-0 on Saturday.

Liverpool need three points from their last two league matches - Chelsea away and Brighton at home - to make sure of a top-four finish this term.

The Reds boast a 5-2 lead heading into the clash.

Bournemouth had briefly threatened to damage its near neighbours' safety hopes when Josh King levelled in first-half added time.

Dave Usher is one of ESPN FC's Liverpool bloggers. Pushed through and got an early exit to prepare for Roma.

"And handball, yes probably, and at the end we didn't score".

The Reds have never lost in 55 top-flight home games against Stoke (W43, D12).
