'Jurgen Klopp says that this guy can do everything'

The forward suffered a broken thumb during a training session with Senegal last week and subsequently missed Liverpool's 1-0 win over Huddersfield on Saturday evening but has now made a return to training.

Jürgen Klopp says his Liverpool team remain a work in progress but that collecting victories while developing a more balanced style augurs well for the rest of the campaign. "But we have to analyse what was good and what was not good".

Roberto Firmino continued his fine scoring record in the competition with the opener in the 20th minute before Salah took over, netting his first just before half-time and then scoring a penalty shortly after the break to make it 50 goals in just 65 Reds appearances.

"It is an exceptional number and hopefully he can continue".

"It's hopefully not the last time [all three score in the same game]", Klopp continued.

"We changed hotel. The players are in the bus for 45 minutes", Mourinho told BT Sport.

Andrew Robertson (7.5): he played less as a defender as he was seen moving to the front to join the attack at every given chance.

Liverpool are level on points with Manchester City at the top of the Premier League, having won seven and drawn two of their nine matches so far. Whilst things didn't go to plan in matchday two as Napoli left it late to win 1-0 at the Stadio San Paulo.

Despite this, Fabinho, who turned 25 earlier in the week, put in an impressive display in a defensive midfield role, Jurgen Klopp praising him after full-time. "The present for his birthday was not that he was in the lineup, it was that we played his favourite system with a double-six". Past year our big strength was high pressing and then when there were moments when [the opposition] didn't play football, it was like "sorry". He was very aggressive and everything was there. At the beginning of the game there was a lot of chaos. "I think we knew how to play with each other", mused Salah when asked about his relationship with his fellow forwards. "That was the start, so let's carry on".
