Salah Strikes Late To Give Liverpool Victory At Palace

The Reds have been in decent form in the Premier League this season and look set to secure a top-four finish for the second season running under Jurgen Klopp this term.

Benteke has now missed a league-high 20 big chances in this season, reported the BBC. Scoring goals, creating chances, which is what everyone wants to see.

Lallana was introduced as a substitute just after the hour mark of Liverpool's 2-1 win at Crystal Palace on Saturday, but lasted only five minutes before pulling up with a muscle injury.

He is already the highest-scoring player from Egypt in the history of England's top flight - well ahead of Mido, who managed 22 - and with his four-goal haul against Watford before the worldwide break, he also became the first Egyptian to hit three or more in a single game.

Klopp, unsurprisingly, has been thrilled with the impact of the former Roma man, and knows he will be key if Liverpool are to progress against City.

"I think Mo has made strides forward within this team through the way in which the team play and the way the other lads interact with him on the pitch", he told UEFA's official website.

Manchester City visit Anfield in the first leg of their quarter-final tie, resuming a rivalry which has seen 12 goals scored in the last two meetings between the teams.

Salah, of course, scored the penalty, and thus managed to take Egypt to their first World Cup in twenty eight years.

"I almost had a heart attack [when he took it]", Klopp added. The best thing was how they celebrated [winning] the penalty.

It was a freaky day for Liverpool's Senegalese superstar, who was booked for diving, had a goal ruled out due to offside, scored for real, picked the ball up after he thought he was fouled and then was hauled off by Klopp before the referee sent him off first. "Maybe we can at least win the other one". It's the quarterfinals of the Champions League and I've never played at this stage before.

The England global had been a key player in Klopp's first two seasons in charge and worked his way back into contention for Gareth Southgate's World Cup squad.

"Whenever something bad happens in football or life, you have to find the positives".

The Express continues by saying that their "Spanish sources" believe that Real Madrid won't be bidding for the 25-year-old either.
