Salah Shines Once More As Liverpool Overcome Leicester At Anfield

Salah Shines Once More As Liverpool Overcome Leicester At Anfield

Matt Holland praised Mohamed Salah for a "cool" finish in Liverpool FC's 2-1 win against Leicester City at Anfield on Saturday evening.

An interesting piece on Statsbomb back in October showed that Liverpool's pressing numbers have dropped dramatically this season, in what could be another attempt by Klopp to preserve his players for the crunch games at the end of the season. "We'll see what he can do for the next game". He has to continue his form and improve. Seventeen of the Egypt forward's goals have come in the league. Lallana, prior to his injury, played as an attacking midfielder from deep in Klopp's predominant 4-3-3 system and duly instigated the Reds pressing game, having registered 34 tackles and 20 interceptions last season. I couldn't ask more from him.

Claude Puel makes for an unlikely nemesis but, while Liverpool brought technicolour excitement last season, they were rendered dullards by a man who projects an unremitting greyness. "The boys show their quality and we did that already a few times".

Emre Can is expected to retain his place in the Liverpool team despite failing to pen a new contract with the Reds.

Salah was seen limping towards the end of the match and Jurgen Klopp has confessed to the Sun that that was not a very good sign. Tricky matches against Manchester City and Manchester United didn't help, but a 2-1 loss to Watford would have been disappointing.

'It is a maximum satisfaction to win like this today and on perfect days we win football games, ' he added.

The Liverpool manager was delighted with his side's performance as they overcame the blow of conceding Jamie Vardy's opener after just three minutes. He received the ball in a tight situation before turning the defender, using his unmatchable acceleration to dart away and score in front of the Kop.

"I don't think the boys were nervous".

After a neat flick-through by Mane, Salah skipped his way past Christian Fuchs, as was the case all game long, before being confronted by Daniel Amartey.

Virgil van Dijk watched from the stands as Liverpool went behind after just three minutes.
