Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp says the form of Mohamed Salah this season is not an issue right now. Egypt international Salah enjoyed a sensational debut season at Anfield after arriving from Roma last summer, scoring 32 Premier League goals and netting 11 times as the Reds reached the Champions League final.
However, the 26-year-old has struggled to replicate those performances during the current campaign and he was hauled off in the second half of Saturday’s 1-1 draw against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

There are now questions whether the forward will reach the dizzying heights of last season, but Klopp is not worried about the situation although he did reveal Salah himself has said he is not happy with how he is playing.
“Of course not. How could he be? It’s a normal situation,” he told reporters when asked if the Liverpool forward was happy with his early season form. “But now that’s what you have a manager for. We will talk about it.
“It’s easy for me because I don’t read what you write, maybe the boys do a bit more but that doesn’t make too much sense at the moment because you will all dissect (the issue) – a big nice cut and you will find pretty much nothing.
“That’s how it is, no problem whatsoever. It’s all fine. As long as he is working like he works and gets into the situations that he gets in, I’m completely fine and everything will be okay.”
