Klopp defends Mohamed Salah despite Liverpool forward’s mini goal drought

Jurgen Klopp insists he is unconcerned by the form of Mohamed Salah after the Liverpool forward’s recent goal drought.

The 26-year-old was the Golden Boot winner in 2017/18 and has scored 17 Premier League goals so far this season, but has failed to score in three successive league fixtures for the first time since arriving at Anfield in 2017.

Salah drew criticism after last weekend’s goalless Merseyside derby, having spurned several chances to beat Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford.

Despite the mini-drought Klopp has defended the Egyptian, praising Salah’s ‘unbelievable scoring record’.

“If you have chances in a game you want to score but as a manager I’m more than used to players not scoring all the time,” Klopp said in his pre-match press conference.

“Mo has an unbelievable scoring record and that is a part of why we are in the position we’re in now.

“As long as we keep creating chances that’s fine.”

Liverpool face Burnley at Anfield on Sunday.
