Klopp: There's no Salah crisis

Liverpool have won their opening five league matches and are second in the table, level on points with Chelsea, and Klopp says Salah remains a "threat" to the opposition. There is no game where we have thought: 'Thank God we have played them'.

"Of course, of course everyone expects that, that is clear", he said. He had fantastic offensive situations in both of the last games and he is in a good shape, actually.

Salah committed an error during Tuesday's 3-2 win over Paris Saint-Germain when he gave away possession in the buildup to Kylian Mbappe's equalising goal.

"You would like to think if we can remain in the game and have a good platform, that will enable us to create chances and take chances if they come around".

The 26-year-old has set unbelievably high standards for himself after last season's brilliant first year at Anfield and many feel that he's nowhere near those heights at the beginning of this campaign. "I told him before the game, I've never seen him - since I've [been here] - as fit as he is at the moment".

Klopp revealed Dejan Lovren, who has yet to feature in a match-day squad after returning from the World Cup with a hip problem, is edging closer to full fitness. "He's in a good shape and the most important thing is to be physically in good shape".

Liverpool's manager has been thrilled with how Shaqiri has adjusted to his squad and if his opportunity does not come against Southampton on Saturday, it is nearly certain he will start in Wednesday's Carabao Cup clash against Chelsea. "Did I speak a lot about lineups here in the past?" It's a different situation and that's all.

The former Republic of Ireland global established a reputation as one of the Premier League's most prolific strikers during his time with Tottenham, but had limited success after moving to Liverpool for £19m in 2008.

"You've all seen the "no look" goals so I think he doesn't need his eye to play". But he will always be a very important part of the squad because of the guy he is.
