The 31-year-old netted his 197th and 198th goals for Liverpool in the first and second half respectively, adding to the two he scored for Chelsea earlier in his career.

"Crazy," Klopp said of Salah’s achievement.

"Goal No. 200 in England, right? Exceptional, played a super game today. Two players always around him, he kept the ball." Klopp added.

"We had so many good moments first half. Composure for the first goal is insane. No doubt in that area, you see it on the scoresheet. Special player." Klopp concluded.

Salah’s goals helped Liverpool move up to second place in the Premier League table, one point behind leaders Manchester City, who they will face after the international break.
