Klopp not getting carried away with Liverpool’s fine form

The sweetest gift? Mo Salah gives shirt to fan for chocolate present after UCL win (PHOTOS/VIDEO)

Klopp also described Fabinho's display as very good after the summer signing made only his second start of the season, a day after his 25th birthday.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp hopes talk of Mohamed Salah's early-season slump will be quashed by the Egyptian's double in a 4-0 win over Red Star Belgrade on Wednesday (Oct 24) that took his tally for the club to 50 goals. I'm not in doubt, he was not in doubt.

Salah scored 44 goals in all competitions last season, for easily the most prolific season of his career, and formed part of the most devastating front three in the Champions League alongside Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino. "But if you constantly ask about, then it's like something obviously is wrong". It's an exceptional number, hopefully he can continue.

Liverpool are now two points clear of free-spending Paris Saint-Germain who needed an injury-time equaliser to draw 2-2 with Napoli in the French capital.

Klopp stressed in his programme notes that Red Star should not be underestimated but the Serbian champions, playing in the competition proper for the first time since it became the Champions League in 1992, looked clearly the weak link in Group C.

England midfielder Henderson will miss the match on Wednesday and the Premier League meeting with Cardiff City on Saturday due to a hamstring problem sustained in the 1-0 win at Huddersfield Town.

Former Stoke winger Shaqiri was hugely influential, using his passing abilities to pick holes in the Red Star defence from a slightly deeper position than usual.

Joe Biden becomes latest bomb target
The second suspicious package was found at a post office on the 1500 block of Lancaster Avenue in Wilmington, Thursday morning. The first was addressed to her Washington DC office and intercepted at a congressional mail facility in Maryland, the U.S.

The home side's opening 10 minutes was summed up by Trent Alexander-Arnold inadvertently blocking Firmino's shot when Liverpool finally created something of note.

Moments later Liverpool were awarded a second penalty for a handball by El Fardou Ben Nabouhane but Mane was denied by a superb save from Borjan and was unable to put away the rebound.

Shaqiri was one of Liverpool's best players on a night he was whistled and booed whenever he received the ball.

The Egypt star, who enjoyed an outstanding first year at Anfield, had struggled for form prior to scoring the victor at Huddersfield Town on Saturday.

Shaqiri is a Switzerland global who was born in Kosovo, the former Serbian province that declared independence in 2008.

Shaqiri can expect a hostile reception if he travels for the return match between the sides in Belgrade on November 6.

"I don't have the feeling of being pleased - it's really that I think so far so good, nothing else". "It makes sense that I first think before I speak".
