Bayern Munich goalkeeper Manuel Neuer is wary of the threat posed by Mohamed Salah despite the Egyptian's lack of form in recent weeks.

Salah, 26, has scored just one goal in his last seven English Premier League games, having also failed to find the back of the net in a 0-0 draw against the German champions at Anfield last month.

Neuer, though, isn't buying into the Reds reported 'slump' in recent weeks and expects the fellow five-time UEFA Champions League winners to be as dangerous as ever on Wednesday evening.

Bayern play host to the Reds at the Allianz Arena on Wednesday evening in a second-leg Round of 16 UEFA Champions League clash.

“The fact that he [Salah] only scored one in the last eight doesn’t mean anything.” Neuer said during the pre match press conference.

“Liverpool can score from anywhere , [Virgil] Van Dijk, [Joel] Matip, from set pieces.

“I think Liverpool will attack and I don’t think it will be as defensive.

“We will be more attacking but we will see how Liverpool press and attack us.”
