How Mohamed Salah could set impressive record for Liverpool against Porto


Jordan Henderson believes the reason little has been made of Liverpool's loss of Philippe Coutinho is that they still have the enormous trio of Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino starring in attack.

In fact, the 25-year-old became the first Liverpool player since Luis Suarez to net 30 goals in all competitions.

Salah could - and perhaps should given his remarkable goals-to-games ratio - hit at least 40 this term.

With Mane you have the pace and directness, with Firmino you have the touch and hold-up play and securing the ball, and then you have Salah that gives you a bit of both and delivers goals.

Roberto Firmino scored his 20th goal of the season in all competitions at Southampton on Sunday, with five of those strikes in the Champions League. It was a good performance and that is all I can say.

"The defensive consistency of the team is the key", Conceicao added.

"You can see that in the way he plays, he is a bit of a free spirit", McClaren told Sky Sports . Then after I saw the referee speaking to someone and you look silly when the goal is denied.

Firmino said the exit last month of Coutinho, his close friend, forced he and his Liverpool teammates to step up and take on further responsibility.

"Coutinho is a great player and of course when he left that put a greater responsibility on everyone else to perform without him", said Firmino ahead of Wednesday's Champions League tie with Porto.

"It's something huge, so I am very happy about it".

Liverpool fans: do you agree with Barnes or is he talking complete rubbish?

"I only answer nicely now because I am friendly and we are in public but if someone asked me about the round after the round in private I would leave the room".

Klopp's faith has been handsomely repaid this season. "It is not for me to think about these things, I have to make a decision for tomorrow night", he said.
