Jurgen Klopp reflects on Mo Salah's first day at Liverpool and Sadio Mane talk

Jurgen Klopp has reminisced about the day Mohamed Salah first arrived at Liverpool ahead of the Egyptian forward’s 150th appearance for the club.

The Reds take on Arsenal on Wednesday looking to keep alive their chances of setting the all-time Premier League points tally record, with Klopp’s side needing to win all three of their remaining games in order to do so.

Salah has been a huge part of the team’s success ever since he joined from Roma in June 2017, with the 28-year-old having scored a superb 94 goals in 149 appearances in all competitions.

And when asked about the player’s upcoming landmark of 150 games for Liverpool, Klopp took the opportunity to praise both him and his strike partners Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino.

“That is 50 games a season, that is unbelievable,” Klopp said. “The front three has worked out in a manner we could not have expected.

“When Mo signed, it was a good day for Liverpool and a good day for Mo. I remember our talk when we first met face to face and spoke about his favourite position on the right.

“He said Sadio plays there but I told him Sadio could play on the left too.

“Now, they have scored 250 goals between them (including Firmino) so it has worked out well. You cannot change the world alone but together, you can.”

Although it has been another fruitful campaign for Salah he now appears to be a big outsider to win his third Premier League Golden Boot in a row.

He has netted 19 in the division so far this season, but still sits four behind the current top scorer Jamie Vardy with just three games left to play.

Following the game against the Gunners Liverpool host Chelsea next Wednesday, where they will be presented with the Premier League trophy, before finishing their season at Newcastle on July 26.
