Jürgen Klopp revels in Xherdan Shaqiri's 'little touch of genius'

Salah didn't care about the dubiety of the spot-kick as he hammered home the penalty to bring up his half-century quicker than any player in Liverpool's history after just 65 games.

Whilst Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane scored for Jurgen Klopp's side, Fabinho was heavily involved during just his second start in a Reds shirt.

However, what we need to consider is that the manager is looking longer term, and in batches of games rather than simply one at a time as the classic cliché goes. But after his sixth goal of the campaign, and latest Liverpool record, Klopp insisted Salah had delivered an emphatic response.

Coach Juergen Klopp said he hoped that such talk would now end. It's an exceptional number, hopefully he can continue. That helps a little bit because I'm not in doubt, he was not in doubt, but if you are constantly asked about it then it's like, something obviously is wrong.

"I think I have the quality and vision to give good passes and you can see that I wanted to give another good performance".

"The most important thing is to win as a team and (the performance) was brilliant from everyone".

In stark contrast to last season's thrilling run to the Champions League final, Liverpool have struggled for goals in recent weeks with a new-found defensive stability instead keeping them joint top of the Premier League.

"You score a goal in the Champions league, he should be happy, it's nearly like - I don't know, what is it?"

He played really well, good to see, very aggressive, everything was there.

Shaqiri made a two-headed eagle gesture which replicated the Albanian flag, in reference to his Kosovo-Albanian roots.

The smattering of Red Star fans at Anfield, defying the UEFA ban on the club's travelling support, jeered the midfielder whenever he touched the ball and a much more hostile reception would be likely for him in the return game on Nov.6. "One player, I think, said something".
