Jurgen Klopp hails ‘outstanding’ Mo Salah as Liverpool crush Spurs

Jurgen Klopp was full of praise for Mo Salah after Liverpool dismantled Spurs in a 4-2 win at Anfield on Saturday. 

The Egyptian winger opened the scoring after 15 minutes before Andy Robertson doubled their lead on the stroke of halftime.

Cody Gakpo headed home just four minutes after the interval, but the goal of the day belonged to Harvey Elliott after the youngster found the target from range with a stunning strike.

Spurs threatened to get back into the match through goals from Richarlison and Son Heung-min, but ultimately fell to their fourth consecutive defeat in the Premier League.

“We are outstanding until we are not,” Klopp told Sky Sports. “It was a really good game.

“Tottenham can put pressure on Aston Villa again for the Champions League. In high performance things, you need a spark. I would say three points is enough and the boys thought that. Anfield was a special place today.

“We were 4-0 up, I made the changes and we lost organisation. Tottenham showed how good they could be. I was happy with the performance.

 

“We were good in pretty much all areas offensively. The passes were good. So many things were good. We stayed calm. As long as they don’t break the lines then it’s fine, let them pass. I liked our game a lot. The goals were outstanding.”

After being dropped for last week’s draw with West Ham, which led to a touchline spat with the manager, Salah responded with a goal and an assist in a performance that impressed Klopp.

“Mo was outstanding, he played a really good game,” the German said. “His side with Harvey [Elliott] was good. I was pleased for him. None of the boys want to play not great, why would they? Mo showed what he is capable of.”

 

Klopp has one final home match in front of the Liverpool fans before leaving the club in the summer, but he is keeping his emotions in check – although he hinted that he is hoping for rain to hide his tears on the final day of the season.

“I would be lying if I said I was at my highest emotion but I have another game,” he admitted.

“In two weeks time is another day. I have said it before, I love absolutely everything about this club. We will see how this game will be. Maybe it’s pouring down and we cannot stay outside for long. There’s a good chance it’ll be raining, by the way.”
