Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has leapt into the defence of Mohamed Salah amid his six-match scoring drought for the club. The Egypt international has been the Reds’ standout performer since joining them in 2017 but he has experienced a rare scoring drought in the past month where he has been both unlucky and poor with his finishing.
Despite Salah’s struggles upfront, he has been contributed in the lead up to the team’s strikes and on Wednesday night, he provided the assist for Sadio Mane for the final goal in a 3-1 Champions League triumph over Bayern Munich. The victory enabled the Reds progress to the quarter final stage in stunning fashion and they are now scheduled to face Porto across two legs next month.
Elsewhere, the Merseyside outfit have an away league game at Fulham on Sunday and they can potentially leapfrog Manchester City at the top with a win. The Citizens have been gaining advantage in recent gameweeks by playing first, but that won’t be the case this weekend with the Mancunian giants on FA Cup duty against Swansea City on the road.
