Robbie Keane: Mohamed Salah found his rhythm under Jurgen Klopp

Klopp could stick with the same side that beat West Ham 4-0 last weekend but Fabinho will be hoping to make his full debut while the likes of Jordan Henderson, Xhedran Shaqiri and Adam Lallana are also pushing for recalls.

He adds a new dimension to Klopp's attack as he offers incisive passing and the ability to take on opposition midfielders easily.

And Klopp believes the converted right-back could have a part to play in central defence as the season goes on, particularly given Klavan's impending move to Cagliari.

"He's a strong as player, always looking for the win, as do I. Whatever happens on the pitch, after the final whistle we shake hands and that's the end of the story".

"We will let other people talk about the challenges, and it is down to us to just go out there and perform, and get as many points as we can".

Mourinho: I don't care about Pogba comments
We never had a warm [heated] exchange of words, everything is respected, I have no problems at all. "I don't care", Mourinho said. Jose Mourinho needs Paul Pogba at his best to boost Manchester United's chances of catching neighbours City, says Darren Bent.

"I'm hearing about it for the first time now, so it doesn't seem like it's close", he said. First the situation is, 'How is the offer, how is the need for us?'.

"Klopp's words? There have been many repercussions after what happened to Salah in the Champions League final". So I respect him, but we both know on the pitch we must fight for our team.

"It is very strong and that is exactly what you need, all the best teams have that strength in depth and competition for places. I don't think that they are really bothered in the moment about a specific number of goals, they only want to win football games". "And yes the feeling around the club is good, but that's only because of the performances and the results we got".

Trent Alexander-Arnold is the most obvious example of this with the young right-back given the opportunity to play in the absence of Nathaniel Clyne previous year and taking that opportunity with both hands. 'So, overall, I think it's a good thing for the team'.
