Much was made about Mo Salah’s nine match goalless drought, but that’s finally been put to rest with Mo’s world class finish against Southampton. Even Mo said he was constantly thinking about it, but if you ask Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp, he was never worried.

“Oh yes. But it was never in doubt that he was a great player in my side,” said Klopp. “Super goal from Mo, super run. Fantastic finish. It was goal number 50 for Liverpool, an incredible number.

“He’s pretty consistent, very consistent. Physical things are always there, but how he stays always calm…it’s a nice moment. A first goal after a while.”

“In the end it’s brilliant. We come here and we know Southampton are a really different side since Ralph came in,” continued the German.” Klopp continued. “Everyone was expecting three points, but we knew how difficult it would be.”

“Everyone will come here in the future and feel how difficult it is, so that makes it even more satisfying and brilliant that we could win.

“It was really big for us.”
