Klopp: There's no Salah crisis

Jurgen Klopp revealed Xherdan Shaqiri's half-time substitution was for tactical reasons as Liverpool extended their 100% start to the new season with a crushing win over Southampton.

The 26-year-old was substituted shortly after his error led to PSG's equaliser at Anfield on Tuesday, and Keown has now said that Salah has not yet fully recovered from his injury.

While last season all the praise was lavished on Liverpool's front three, so far it has been the midfield which has been winning all the plaudits.

The Reds have made a phenomenal start to the season, with six wins from six in all comps and sit second in the Premier League table on goal difference.

Klopp changed his system to accommodate Shaqiri, switching to 4-2-3-1 with Salah moved to the centre and Shaqiri playing behind. "No-one remembers that, it is really no problem".

"I don't mean that with any negativity - we're delighted because we know his class better than most".

In the same period Southampton have scored none or one in 16 of their 21 away games, which suggests not much should be expected of them especially with Ings unavailable.

"It is a completely normal situation for an offensive player that they have times when they don't score".

"Finishing is something you can never take for granted", he added.

'Saints were not bad, they were really good, but maybe in the final third they were not the biggest threat.

Liverpool and Chelsea are among the only two sides to still have a 100 per cent record in the Premier League and the Merseyside outfit will seek to extend their brilliant start against an inconsistent Southampton side.
