Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has raved about Mohamed Salah on the club’s official website for his performance against Sheffield United on Saturday evening.
Klopp believes that Egypt international forward Salah was “sensational” for Liverpool in their 2-1 win against the Blades at Anfield in the Premier League.
The Liverpool boss has also praised Senegal international forward Sadio Mane for the impact he made on the match, and he has admitted that his side struggled to cope with United striker Oliver McBurnie in the first half.
Klopp told Liverpool’s official website: “It brought Mo in a different position, where I have to say he played an incredible game.
“Mo and Sadio didn’t score but played outstanding. Sadio was in the one-on-one situations pretty much undefendable. Mo between the lines, sensational. Super chance. And the other two boys scored and played good as well, so that helps obviously.”
The Liverpool boss told BBC Sport: “We struggled with McBurnie in the first half but we changed our positioning and won the second balls.
“We were dominating at 2-1 and had some really good football but then they came back. They never give up, I respect that so much. They go and go and go. Chris is doing a wonderful job.”
How did Mohamed Salah play against Sheffield United?
Salah did not score for Liverpool against the Blades, but the former Chelsea attacking player was influential in the game.
The 28-year-old should have been better with his decision-making in the first half, but the forward stepped up his game in the second period.
The forward had a brilliant goal disallowed, and he also hit the frame of the United goal.
According to WhoScored, Salah took four shots of which one was on target, played two key passes, had a pass accuracy of 86.8%, took 63 touches, attempted two dribbles, and made one tackle and one clearance.
