Jurgen Klopp speaks out on angry Mohamed Salah post-Chelsea

Liverpool and Chelsea faced off on Sunday.

Liverpool began the game in dominant fashion and took the lead midway through the second half after Mohamed Salah set up Luis Diaz.

Salah then thought he had scored himself but it was ruled out for offside.

Chelsea grew into the game after that call and eventually equalised through Axel Disasi.

The Blues controlled most of the second half with Liverpool struggling to create much.

This saw Jurgen Klopp opt to sub off Salah, but the Egyptian was less than happy after seeing his number go up.

On Salah’s reaction to being taken off, Jurgen Klopp said:

“I can understand because if Mo scored it would have been a new record for goals scored in the opening game but I didn’t think about that,” Klopp told Sky Sports.

“We needed stability and we needed fresh legs. It was super intense for everybody.

“That’s all I can say about it, his reaction was absolutely okay. When I sub a player and he is jumping in to my arms at 1-1 and he is a striker who thinks he will score, I would be really surprised so that’s absolutely fine.”
