We want him to score as often as possible.

Klopp added: 'Everybody expects things because of last season.

"It is a completely normal situation for an offensive player that they have times when they don't score".

Former Arsenal defender, Martin Keown says Mohamed Salah has been forced to compromise his playing style as a result of the injury he suffered during the Champions League final, back in May.

"No one remembers that (how he started last season)".

He has been directly involved in four goals in just six games this season, but wasn't at the races in the win over Paris Saint-Germain in the mid-week Champions League match.

"That's good and how I said there are a lot of games to come and these two boys can play together as well - they did in the past, by the way, and they can do it again".

"He has been fantastic in defensive situations in recent games".

Liverpool will be looking to maintain their ideal start to the new season when they welcome Southampton to Anfield on Saturday afternoon. I think, maybe, Sunday (will be) his first session with the team. I would never do that and the players should never do that - only the supporters are allowed to do that. It wasn't like he finished last season, but he needed time last year and he will take time this year.

"We've had a good start to the season, nothing has been won yet, we need to show it every three days now".

The likes of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Sadio Mane and most recently Virgil van Dijk have left the south coast for the north west, but attentions will turn to the action on the pitch on Saturday afternoon when the pair do battle at Anfield in a 3pm kick-off.

Klopp revealed Dejan Lovren, who has yet to feature in a match-day squad after returning from the World Cup with a hip problem, is edging closer to full fitness.
