Salah goals will start again soon, says Klopp

Its barely been half a dozen games, but in the modern world that equals a drought. Mo Salah has scored 20 goals in all competitions this season, admittedly barely half of his total for last season, but it still equals an impressive tally. Not to mention the fact that he rarely plays as a striker or forward and is just 1 goal behind many people's Player of the Year, Sergio Aguero.

But the pressure on the shoulders of Mo, Egypt's biggest star since Cleopatra, is ridiculous and you can see it has gradually started to wear on him recently.

But his manager believes that, like Sadio Mane at the turn of the year, Salah's goals will start to flow again soon.

Speaking, to, Klopp said: "Sadio played pretty much always like this but now he is always in the right spot in the right moment. In football it's sometimes like this.

"He is in a really good moment, of course. The only thing he did when he was not always in the right spot was work and work and work.

"That's exactly what Mo has to do, exactly the same: just work, do the right things and it will come again.

"He's just rather unlucky, where Sadio is lucky in the moment - he is in brilliant shape, that's true.

"But then, he is in the right shape and maybe a yard away from him is Mo, but somebody else scored. That's how it is, all good."

With the visit of Spurs at Anfield at the end of this month, Mo has 11 days to get himself back into that terrifying frame of mind that saw him score 44 goals last season and provide 16 assists for 60 contributions in all.

It may be some way off last seasons total, but he currently stands at 20 goals and 9 assists. Even if he adds another 5 to each of those tallies before the season ends that's still a massively impressive haul for what is generally considered a winger.

Regardless, he currently sits on 64 goals in 94 games, with 25 assists, meaning a goal involvement almost every match he's played since he arrived at Anfield and a number of broken records to boot. Leaving you in no doubt that the Salah of this season is still one of the best players in the world, even if he fails to register another goal this season.
