Liverpool no longer a stepping stone for top players - Jurgen Klopp

Did Mo Salah mock Ramos with goal celebration

Mohamed Salah: Liverpool may lose African superstar according to Egypt coach Javier Aguirre

Salah celebrated with a double-handed gesture that looked a lot like the one that Sergio Ramos uses after scoring, but Klopp was mystified by suggestions that this might have been a dig at the Spaniard who caused Salah's injury in last season's Champions League final and is now engulfed in controversy in Spain.

"So I try to be nice, eh?"

The result was a 3-3 draw where Liverpool's backline once again undermined the good work done by its frontline as Mo Salah made an instant impact on his league debut for the club.

The Spanish defender has made a habit out of scoring a bucket load of goals despite his position at the back and fans on social media are convinced that the Liverpool forward was mocking the World Cup victor. "In this moment, I am happy because I can feel the club is in the same way as me with the same ambition and I am happy to extend my contract". "It was one [a transfer] for the future and he's settling, yes", the Reds boss said. I am not sure if we had the ball in the past when we've played here, they were much more open games - especially the 3-3 we played here.

Manchester City's Pep Guardiola escapes with warning for derby referee comments
Pep Guardiola , with the help of a bottomless pit of money, has lifted City to a level arguably never seen before in the Premier League .

"The only criticism I could ever have of Sadio is that maybe at times he is the only one not to see just how good he is - but as an attacking player he is the complete package". I don't talk about transfers but nobody leaves, he doesn't want [to go].

"It's just the insane world out there where if a player doesn't play in the last five games, you open kind of a transfer market".

That means only two out of James Milner, Georginio Wijnaldum, Fabinho, Naby Keita and Henderson can start - with Wijnaldum and Fabinho impressing the most of late.

If you'd have said Liverpool's back four would include those three 18 months ago, fans probably would have laughed but they've become some of the Premier League's finest under Klopp. It is hard to get information about it but in training he is completely normal - in good shape, looks sharp, looks focused. Of course, it's not something you want to be involved in. "We have to make a few decisions, obviously".
