       Has Mohamed Salah's form been exaggerated

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has hailed Mohamed Salah's defensive contribution for the team this season.

The Egypt global scored 44 goals last season but has found the net only twice so far this season, although that is similar to a year ago when he had three from half-a-dozen games.

Asked if he is surprised by Milner's performance this season, Klopp said in a press conference: "It's not just this season, a year ago he had most assists in Champions League".

"It's so important in these games especially, so that says everything about him, that he is really ready to work for the team in these moments and it's a completely normal situation for an offensive player that you have times when you don't score".

"Finishing is something you can never take for granted". I would never do that and the players should never do that - only the supporters are allowed to do that. Nobody knows. But we don't have to talk about this even though everyone else wants to. Nobody remembers that, so it's really no problem. But with Mo, everything is fine.

The Switzerland global was the surprise package in Liverpool's summer transfer dealings with the club capitalising on a £12.5million release clause to take him from relegated Stoke.

"At the end of the season we will see how it was, not at the beginning".

Next up for Liverpool FC is a home clash against Southampton this weekend as the Reds look to try and continue their 100 per cent start to the new Premier League season.

Last term, against the Saints, Salah found the net three times in two games.

"Ox is a different situation but it's so nice to have Ox around", Klopp said on Friday.

Despite his side's win over the French champions, in which Roberto Firmino bagged a stoppage-time victor, Klopp still thinks PSG are among the favourites for this season's Champions League. "It is much too early to be thinking about something like that and making a big thing of it", Klopp said of Salah's goals return.
