Liverpool stretched their winning run to six this season with Tuesday's thrilling 3-2 Champions League victory over Paris Saint-Germain, which followed quickly after last weekend's impressive 2-1 win away to Tottenham in the Premier League.

Roberto Firmino is such an important cog in the Liverpool machine Sadio Mane was texting him 24 hours before their match against Paris St Germain urging the Brazil global to declare himself fit for the Champions League opener.

"Dejan is close", said Klopp.

Mohamed Salah's sluggish start to the season is down to a fear of getting injured again after Sergio Ramos' tackle. "But he is still a threat, has fantastic situations in both games and he is in good shape". So, the start was good for us as a team and for him as well. It's really no problem.

The chorus of You'll Never Walk Alone under the lights is enough to pick up even the least motivated of players and the enthusiasm goes hand in hand with Jurgen Klopp's gegenpressing style. "I told him before the game, I've never seen him - since I've [been here] - as fit as he is at the moment".

"Ox is a different situation but it's so nice to have Ox around", added Klopp. "I had a long injury in my career and the first month you take it somehow and then you think: "That's really boring and it's not exactly why I wanted to play football".
