Jurgen Klopp: Mohamed Salah needs to relax

Grant SmithOct 03, 2018

Carlo Ancelotti's side opened their Champions League campaign with a draw against Red Star Belgrade, so the game against Liverpool puts extra pressure on them. "I have great ambitions and so do Liverpool and now I play in the most important league in the world".

"I knew I'd see him again sooner or later, and obviously I'll have a coffee ready for him".

"The good news for us is we're not too bad as well, so that's why I'm looking forward to the game".

Prior to that, he was in charge as City were held 1-1 by Burnley at Turf Moor in February, and City's last win when Atkinson had the whistle came earlier in the 2017-18 season when Kevin De Bruyne struck to give Pep Guardiola's men a 1-0 away win at Chelsea.

Adam Lallana did not travel with the squad as he continues his rehabilitation from a groin problem.

Sturridge has now scored 50 goals in 103 games in the Premier League for Liverpool FC.

Like Liverpool, Napoli are second in the league table as well but have lost twice already as the gap to Juventus is up to six points.

A reborn Sturridge is now Liverpool's joint top scorer so far this season with four goals despite remaining behind Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane in Klopp's pecking order.

The Hungarian referee showed Arturo Vidal a controversial red card and then allowed two Real goals to stand despite replays showing both were offside.

On potentially staying in Rome, he added: "The thought has passed through my mind so many times because I was very happy in Rome".

Klopp returns to the Stadio San Paolo for the first time since he was handed a two-match touchline ban for berating the fourth official in 2013 when visiting with Borussia Dortmund.

But he has impressed Klopp upon his return to Anfield and Murphy believes the ex-Chelsea and Manchester City forward is now the best back-up striker in the Premier League.

"It was not nice sitting in the stand, getting all the comments, so I made a decision to watch the second half of the match from the groundsman's room - with a big picture of Diego Maradona on the wall".
