Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp praised the efforts of his star winger Mohamed Salah after he led the Reds to a precious 1-0 Premier League win at Brighton and Hove Albion on Saturday.

Liverpool are now seven points clear at the top of the Premier League having bounced back from two successive defeats in all competitions, after Salah’s second-half penalty gave them the winning goal.

The 26-year-old Pharaohs star’s tally is now 14 league goals in 22 appearances so far.

“It was a brilliant situation. It makes sense for a striker to go dribbling in the box because it’s difficult for the defender to defend it clear,” Klopp was quoted as saying by Liverpool’s official website after the match. 

“He was in a brilliant position in that moment – if he could shoot, for sure it was a big chance as well. That’s cool. Sadio had moments, Bobby always.

“We speak about maturity after the 1-0 but how they defend then, if you see it in their face – how Bobby is talking to everybody, bringing Sadio into position and all that – that’s the massive difference. That’s really cool. 

“The boys worked really hard and deserved these three points, I think, absolutely,” the coach concluded.


Saturday’s victory put Liverpool on 57 points from 22 games, seven ahead of closest rivals Manchester City.
