Salah deserved MOTM award - Klopp

Liverpool head coach Jurgen Klopp believes Mohamed Salah should've walked away with the man-of-the-match accolade in the club's 4-2 win over Burnley this past weekend.

The Egypt international failed to find the back of the net on Sunday, having struggled for form in recent weeks. The 26-year-old has scored just one goal in his last seven English Premier League matches.

But, despite his lack of goal contributions in recent weeks, Klopp believes the forward did enough against Burnley to scoop the MOTM accolade.

"We have no problem with confidence," said Klopp, who's side have dropped eight points in their last seven matches. "We didn't have a problem after the Everton game. You don't have to think that everything you write influences us.

"Most of the things are not that interesting to us! You make a big fuss if we score five, then we are the best attacking side in the world, and we score nil and then we have an offensive problem.

"Today [Sunday], Mo Salah for me was the best player on the pitch and he didn't score. I am not sure you will see that in a lot of ratings, because he's a striker and he didn't score, but we have no problem with confidence. We are in a good moment.

He continued: "We have only to make sure that we stay in the really interesting competition on top of the table. The message from today is that nobody gets rid of us, if we play as we played today. We had the perfect mixture of fighting the opponent, fighting the circumstances and playing football. That was really good, and I liked it."
