After a brace against Everton, Salah reshaping history never ……..

Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp lauded Mohamed Salah after he scored twice in the Reds’ 2-0 Merseyside derby win against 10-man Everton on Saturday, saying the team’s talisman can score even on bad days.

Salah scored twice in extra time after breaking the stalemate with a penalty in the 75th minute. He now has a goal or an assist in 13 consecutive games at Anfield.

What I like best about Mo Salah, aside from his numbers, is that I believe he has played an enormous number of fantastic games – tonight was not one of them.

“We need someone who can get the ball past the goal line. And he was that once more. I admire people like them so much. And it’s simply fantastic; his figures are insane. He will never give up. That’s just his personality. And that’s fantastic for us.”

When Everton striker Beto was hauled down by centre defender Ibrahima Konate, Klopp breathed a sigh of relief, and Everton manager Sean Dyche thought the home side should have been reduced to ten men.

“Ibrahima could have gone,” Klopp admitted. “When he didn’t get the second yellow I thought okay, we don’t give it a chance and take him off.”

Everton were not so fortunate, losing Ashley Young to a red card for two cautions in the first half, but it took until the 75th minute for Salah to break the deadlock.
