Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp says Mohamed Salah’s goal drought does not bother him as his side try to win the Premier League title. The Egypt international has been in sensational form since joining the club, scoring 44 goals during his maiden campaign at Anfield.
Salah has netted on 17 occasions this season so far in the Premier League but he has failed to find the back of the net during his last eight games. He played a huge part in the 2-1 win over Tottenham last weekend and Klopp is adamant that his form is not an issue.
The German told reporters: “It was an own goal but it was Mo’s header which forced it. It felt like it was his goal,” said Klopp. “That Mo was in that situation was off the training ground with a cross from the second ball. I was really pleased when I watched it back.
“People talk about how many games he hasn’t scored in but he doesn’t seem bothered. It’s about work-rate, doing it again and again, and one day the ball will bounce in your direction. “We have 79 points – you can’t have that if you have major problems in a season.”
