Liverpool's Mohamed Salah 'fine' despite lack of goals - Jurgen Klopp

       Has Mohamed Salah's form been exaggerated

The injury-plagued England worldwide, who spent the second half of last season on loan at West Brom, returned to the starting line-up in midweek and rewarded his manager's faith with the opening goal in a dramatic 3-2 win over PSG.

Salah was undercooked at the World Cup having injured his shoulder in a clash with Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos during Liverpool's defeat in the Champions League final, but Klopp denied ongoing fitness issues are behind the player's slow start to the campaign.

"No one remembers that (his slow start last season), it is really no problem".

'Yes, he's ready. Why should I think that about Bobby?

"At the end of the season we will see how it was, not at the beginning".

"On the defensive side, the last two games he was outstanding", Klopp said at a news conference on Friday.

"A lot of games will come, so it's good to know about that and that's why I was so pleased with the performance, because it could be players say "now I play but I don't have the rhythm", but he had minutes before that and a lot of good sessions, so he had rhythm and played really well. It wasn't like he finished last season but he needed time last year and we will take time this year". He's still a threat in offensive situations.

He was also named in the 2017-18 PFA Team of the Year.

"Finishing is something you can never take for granted; I would never do that, the players should never do that - only the supporters are allowed to do that".

An eye injury restricted Firmino to the substitutes' bench for Tuesday night's Champions League victory over Paris Saint-Germain, with Sturridge starting in his place.

Salah has never gone more than three matches without slotting for the Reds, who are now joint top of the Premier League standings after winning all five of their opening matches.

Salah needed time a year ago.

"Dejan is close", said Klopp. "He's a proper professional, so his body gives him the opportunity".
