Mohamed Salah & James Milner: Everyone saw what happened vs Huddersfield

Huddersfield 0 – Liverpool 3

It was a much needed three points for Liverpool.

Having recently beaten Man City 4-3, Jurgen Klopp’s side proceeded to lose to the two worst teams in the Premier League.

Swansea beat the Reds 1-0 before West Brom knocked Liverpool out the FA Cup.

But Liverpool got back to winning ways in a 3-0 win at Huddersfield on Tuesday night.

Huddersfield put up little resistance as the Terriers continue to nosedive towards the drop zone. David Wagner’s men are just one point above the bottom three.

Mohamed Salah vs James Milner

Liverpool opened the scoring at the Kirklees Stadium with a long range effort from Emre Can.

Roberto Firmino continued his brilliant scoring form doubling the lead with a superb solo effort in the second half.

The result was wrapped up by Mohamed Salah from the penalty spot.

But Salah’s penalty caused plenty of chatter. That’s after the Egyptian seemed to take the spot-kick away from James Milner.

Milner, of course, is the usual Liverpool penalty-taker. So what happened?

After the match Jurgen Klopp was asked about the Mohamed Salah vs James Milner penalty incident. The German commented it was all his fault:

It’s all my fault, I thought it was clear (who was taking it) but obviously I left some space for interpretation. I was not 100% clear!

At the end, the ball is in which we didn’t have too often this season – so yippee! Maybe Mo will qualify for the next one as well.

I thought it was clear, but they discussed it and it’s all good. It’s better that you have two or three who want to take it than nobody to take it. The discussion was still OK.

Why did Virgil van Dijk miss the Huddersfield game?

Having spent 75 million pounds on the Dutch centre-half, it was a shock to see Virgil van Dijk on the subs bench against Huddersfield.

So was the defender injured? No.

Klopp offered two different explanations for why VVD missed Tuesday’s game.

He firstly claimed that Van Dijk was rotated, amid claims that Klopp still doesn’t know the defender well enough and the manager felt unsure playing VVD in three matches in a week.

However Klopp also offered an alternative explanation, saying “there was a fitness thing. Virgil in half a year will be a different player to last week or last year, that is completely normal.”
