Klopp added: 'Everybody expects things because of last season.

Salah suffered a shoulder injury in the Champions League final defeat to Real Madrid which hampered him during the World Cup and he is still wearing some strapping around the area.

"No one remembers that, it is really no problem".

He has been directly involved in four goals in just six games this season, but wasn't at the races in the win over Paris Saint-Germain in the mid-week Champions League match.

Perhaps Southampton's best hope lies in Liverpool's performance level dropping after the midweek Champions League match and the figures from last season are interesting, with Klopp's side having a W4 D6 L3 record in those circumstances. He is still a threat, made fantastic situations in both our last games. But it's completely normal that everyone expects this.

While he has by no means endured a torrid start to the season, Mo Salah has also not quite looked at his best and against PSG, he looked exhausted.

"I am fine with him, I think he is fine with me and the situation". The start was good for the team and also him as well. I would never do that and the players should never do that - only the supporters are allowed to do that.

Liverpool midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has kicked a ball for the first time after knee surgery last April.

"We've had a good start to the season, nothing has been won yet, we need to show it every three days now".

After a brief cameo appearance against PSG on Tuesday, he could well be in line for a starting role on Saturday in order to rest Gini Wijnaldum and James Milner, who have played a lot of football already this season.

Klopp's men are then due to host Premier League champions Manchester City on October 7 before the worldwide break. He is a top professional and his body gives him a chance to do so.
