Salah: Man United game is a must-win for Liverpool

The Egyptian frontman has finished as the Premier League’s top marksman in two of his three seasons at Anfield and is chasing down a hat-trick

Sports News | Celebrations Ban Will Be Hard to Implement: Klopp

The 28-year-old Egyptian winger became Liverpool's all-time top scorer in the Champions League as well as having snatched more titles with the English Premier League side.

Since the 7-0 rout of Crystal Palace on December 19, Liverpool have drawn with West Bromwich Albion and Newcastle United, and lost at Southampton, in the Premier League.

Salah now leads the race for the Premier League Golden Boot having bagged 13 times in the division so far in 2020-21.

United are now three points ahead of second-placed Liverpool at the top of the Premier League. "I understand rules have to be strict, but we have to learn from the things that have worked in the past few months and football worked", quoted Klopp as saying.

Klopp, however, was nonplussed and said: 'Am I surprised that somebody is talking about what I said after the Southampton game? No. But because this one, if they win they are going to be six points [ahead of Liverpool] and if you win you're going to be the same, it's a little bit special this game. After the Southampton game, we had another game [Aston Villa in the FA Cup] before United and I didn't think for a second about the United game in that moment.

Werner however had a late chance to seal the game as he was put clean through on goal, but the Germany striker failed to hit the target with his shot.

In the same game, they had 79 ball recoveries, matching their season-high total which came against Leeds United on the opening weekend of their campaign.

There is plenty that Liverpool are still doing right, but they are not finishing off sequences as they did during last season's championship-winning effort.

"If he would be in my situation, he would obviously play mind games, but unfortunately I have no skills for playing mind games and that's my problem".

"But those are goals I've seen him score many a time".
