Salah talks historical CL comeback, final Premier League game

Salah talks historical CL comeback, final Premier League game

His header against Newcastle last Saturday night kept Liverpool in the title race, again off the bench, and he surpassed that as a starter in midweek by scoring twice in the incredible 4-0 win against Barcelona, including the decisive victor in a 4-3 aggregate win.

At one point it was claimed Barcelona could sign Naby Keita from under Liverpool's noses, just to treat the Merseyside club a lesson.

14 years ago "Liverpool" in the memorable Champions League final against AC Milan Andriy Shevchenko for some 25 minutes recouped from the account 0:3. And Alves has come to his former teammate's defence - labelling him the "one untouchable in football".

If Barcelona thought it was hard getting Coutinho from Anfield then they'll be in for a shock if they return for Robertson. We put so much into the Premier League this season. Sitting on the seventh spot, Nuno Santo's side are third in a mini top seven table, only behind Liverpool and Manchester City.

Messi is leading the race to win this year's European Golden Shoe and scored two goals as Barcelona took a seemingly commanding 3-0 lead to Anfield for their Champions League semifinal second leg. So for better or for worse, they are the ones who will be on the cover. It's the feeling that Liverpool have experienced for the past couple of months, where they've managed to win game after game hoping to profit from Man City dropping points, which the English champions have simply refused to do.

On the other hand, Liverpool have drawn just four and won the rest 10 and the least they can do is to hope for City's opponents to nick away a point on Sunday to end their title drought. Today, they need a favour from Brighton, having failed to receive one from Leicester, Burnley, Manchester United, Tottenham, Crystal Palace, Cardiff City, Fulham and Watford - the sides that City have faced since Liverpool's 0-0 draw against Everton.

Yet he knows when the dust settles on an epic League title battle Liverpool can have no regrets.

Reflecting on that result ahead of the Premier League finale tomorrow, Klopp explained the crucial impact of such an achievement beyond the headline fact of reaching the final.

Let's go for a Getafe win and why not? I love the Premier League, the level is really the best in the world I think, the atmosphere in the stadiums is wonderful.
