Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp: 'James Milner is setting best example'

The Southampton manager believes Liverpool's start proves they can challenge for the Premier League title this season.

Klopp, whose side have begun the season in great style and are yet to drop a point after five Premier League matches despite Salah's lack of goals, admitted the Egyptian's superb record had raised expectations.

"Last year what did he score, three in his first six games?"

Asked if he is surprised by Milner's performance this season, Klopp said in a press conference: "It's not just this season, a year ago he had most assists in Champions League".

The veteran put in a stellar showing against Les Parisiens and his tremendous work rate was put to good use as the Reds shut down Neymar each time the world's most expensive player got a whiff of the ball.

He is in a good shape, actually, and then finishing is never something you can take for granted. I would never do that and the players should never do that - only the supporters are allowed to do that. "They want to feature and that is what we have to do for sure". "Nobody remembers that. It is really not a problem". It was not the reason for taking him off, of course not, so I am fine with him. I think, maybe, Sunday (will be) his first session with the team. We didn't learn a lot which we didn't know before, but it's nice to see that we can do it.

She also played a 2017 interview clip of Cardi saying that "nothing was off limits", even when talking about people's children. Just in case listeners didn't connect " Hard White " to the Cardi B altercation, Minaj added the hashtag #NYFW to her post.

Salah has started every game for Liverpool this so far this season, recording two assists in addition to his two goals.

Liverpool have previously said that there is a possibility the midfielder misses the entire 2018-19 season, but the club did include him in their 25-man Premier League squad.

"Last year he had three in six, this year two in six". "It is much too early to be thinking about something like that and making a big thing of it", Klopp said of Salah's goals return.
