  • Liverpool Training Session And Press Conference

Egyptian football star Mohamed Salah made a young Liverpool fan cry tears of joy after handing him his jersey following the match won by the Reds 3-0 against Southampton at Anfield. We had more possession, so we needed to find solutions, and we did.

Speaking at his news conference after the game, Klopp was asked to explain his decision to substitute Shaqiri, and he replied: "It was not easy, to be honest".

"I'm really, really happy about how we played the game today, because it was clear it was a really hard game, we knew that form the last few games when we played Southampton, but today we were in a really good mood", Klopp said.

Klopp explained it is significant, not due to there being any worries over Salah losing his touch, but that the entire team have empathised with him through his struggles and are eager for him to have a smile on his face again.

Though it wasn't as electric of a performance as past ones, it still resulted in three points as Joel Matip and Mohamed Salah scored, while Jurgen Klopp's team actually got the winning goal via an own goal 10 minutes in.

"It's just good to have him". You saw the free kick, it was outstanding.

"He tried everything. We only had problem in defensive [situations], offensive it was a good idea". "Shaqiri was given the freedom to go and play and create things, so I thought it was a good tactical move to go with an extra creative midfielder, and you can afford to do that, especially at home". "But then we won game number eight 5-0, very cool", he said.

Van Dijk had to leave the game shortly into the second half because of what looked to be like a rib injury, hopefully nothing serious comes out of it, as the men in red are still in the middle of a tough run of games. Yes, it's a surprise because of course you can not expect it, but all performances we showed so far were at least good enough to win the games.

"That's good, but the next one is coming".

With rotation expected in Liverpool's first meeting with Chelsea in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday, Van Dijk is likely to be rested in time for the trip to Stamford Bridge next Saturday.
