‘Absolutely certain’: Klopp recounts what Mohamed Salah said before kick-off about the ‘extraordinary’ Liverpool man

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has praised the understanding between attackers Darwin Nunez and Mohamed Salah.

Darwin Nunez was “extraordinary” in the eyes of Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp against Aston Villa.

The Reds rolled through what could have been an actual banana peel and Villa made his way to Anfield.

Dominik Szoboszlai put Liverpool ahead before Nunez hit the post and his shot eventually turned into a Matty Cash own goal.

Mohamed Salah added the third, scoring from close range when Nunez chipped in a corner from Andrew Robertson.

Three goals, three points, three wins in a row – Liverpool are doing pretty well at the moment.

Klopp has now tried to praise Nunez Club official website that he simply delivered an “extraordinary” performance.

Klopp believes Salah Nunez told before the game to just throw everything his way and vowed to get on his bike and overtake the Villa defence.

The Liverpool boss thinks the partnership between Nunez and Salah against Villa was ‘really good’ and he will certainly be expecting more of it in the future.

“It was like that from the start, the two sprinters want to know where the other is,” said Klopp. “I’m pretty sure Mo Darwin also said before the game: If a ball comes up, please deflect it, I’m on my bike.” Yes, the partnership was really good today. To be honest I liked today’s line-up. It’s a bit of a problem in my job that we make lineups before we know if it’s going to work – but it worked out pretty well.”

“And yes, I’m really happy for Darwin too, the performance was exceptional. And let’s not forget that it was an own goal or whatever. There were rightly moments when the whole stadium thought, ‘Oh my god, there’s still a chance of getting the ball,’ he added.

The Premier League defense will struggle to keep Darwin Nunez and Mohamed Salah at bay

Nunez and Salah are just so quick and so active in their movements, always trying to get behind the defence.

They’re the kind of players defenders absolutely hate to play against and having them both on the same team is a huge threat.

Of course, that depends on Salah staying at Liverpool and not moving to Saudi Arabia in the coming days.

If Salah stays, there could be a connection between Nunez and the Egyptian this season.

Salah served Nunez for a cash own goal when both players ran after it, before Nunez served Salah for a third goal.

That connection grows after a mixed season for Liverpool last season and if Nunez gets a real breakthrough at the team Liverpool could have a really dynamic duo on their hands.
