"I saw a lot of good signs in the Man United game, and if we had won that game everyone would have seen them".

"Someone has to be calm in this situation - it is not a catastrophe".

He added: "It has of course affected us in one way or another, but the players who play in that position always do their best".

Salah's blank in Sunday's goalless draw with United made it four league games without a goal for the forward. "Because we didn't win, then nobody was interested in it". Things change overnight. I think I heard somewhere I have to rebuild this team. "The world is a insane place, not only because of the pandemic", Klopp commented.

"After last season, we didn't make steps forwards, we know that and we want to change that but we have to change that by playing, not by talking".

Egyptian global football star and Liverpool FC striker Mohamed Salah announced that he wants to stay with the Reds for as long as he can.

Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Firmino scored a combined 183 Premier League goals over the last four campaigns and helped the Merseyside club to their first title in 30 years last season.

Los Angeles County suspends cremation limits because of coronavirus deaths
County have eased restrictions on the number of cremation performed each month at the request of county health officials. More than 13,000 cases are being diagnosed each day, putting a strain on hospitals, according to reports.

"It's the situation we are in".

However, the Dutchman's absence has been compounded by another long-term injury to a centre-back in Joe Gomez and Joel Matip's fitness problems.

If we were Van Dijk, we wouldn't be willing to undo all our hard work in order to be fit in time for a sub-par edition of the famous competition.

Despite so much attention on the defence, it is Liverpool's heralded front three who have come under most scrutiny in the last few days, with Roberto Firmino's lack of goals again raising questions. You can not explain that.

"It's not that teams now defend against us with all they have - we know that for a while and it's not new".

Klopp delivered an update on Matip's recovery at a pre-match press conference, telling reporters: "Joel is in full training, and now we have to make a decision".

As Lovren says, the former Celtic colossus has enough time in his career to appear at other tournaments, so there's no need to risk it all for this one.
