Mohamed Salah was back among the goals as he scored twice during the 4-0 Champions League win and the Egyptian global should once again start on the right wing.

Jürgen Klopp says his Liverpool team remain a work in progress but that collecting victories while developing a more balanced style augurs well for the rest of the campaign.

"If we can maybe get a point there, or a good performance, then we can take it in to the games after that and have a good go".

"It's like a dog - if you don't give him his favourite toy and you throw something else, he thinks: 'No, I don't want that, I want the other one.' I want to play high press". At the beginning of the game there was a lot of chaos. "That was the start, so let's carry on".
