Jurgen Klopp defends out-of-form Mohamed Salah


Meeting for the second time in the space of week, Chelsea and Liverpool went head-to-head on Saturday looking to claim an early advantage in the Premier League.

"I spoke a lot about Chelsea and how good they are, but we defended it brilliantly".

Hazard's goal was his sixth in the Premier League and Sarri still thinks he can hit 40 this season.

Liverpool rescued a point thanks to Daniel Sturridge's stunning 89th-minute strike, after Eden Hazard had put the home side ahead in the first half.

Daniel Sturridge extended Liverpool's unbeaten start to the Premier League season by salvaging a point for Jurgen Klopp's team with a goal just three minutes after coming on as a substitute against Chelsea. As I said, it was just about getting the result.

"My cousin gave me some stick the other day for celebrating against Chelsea because he's a Chelsea fan; I think in the moment like the other night I got excited and celebrated".

Jürgen Klopp offered his support to Mohamed Salah after substituting him in Liverpool's 1-1 draw at Chelsea, and backed the reigning footballer of the year to overcome his first hard spell since joining the club.

Other US officials briefed reporters on Iran and its activities. "We only ask that you honor our sovereignty in return". Since then, the Trump administration has slapped a number of sanctions on Iran while vowing to apply more in November.

Head coach Sarri reiterated after the 1-1 draw that he believes Hazard can score 40 goals this season.

"He's fantastic football player, he had a full preseason and he's in the best shape since I've known him".

Chelsea's key players are likely to be given a rest on Thursday, when they host Vidi in the Europa League, given their league trip to Southampton takes place only three days later.

Maurizio Sarri's men saw their ideal start to the season end last Sunday, following a 0-0 draw at West Ham.

"It's really cool. I'm really happy for him. When he came into the dressing room.it was really loud and the boys are all really happy for him because he really is in a good moment".

"What a game, a spectacular football game", he told BBC Sport. You could see the first ball he missed a bit it was not in the right position, and the next ball he passed! Why?
