Salah scores on debut but Liverpool held at Wigan

Salah scores on debut but Liverpool held at Wigan

Mohamed Salah should make his Liverpool debut in Friday's friendly at Wigan, where boss Jurgen Klopp is set to play two different XI's.

Salah struck in the final minute of the first half to cancel out Alex Gilbey's neat opener, with neither team able to find a winning goal in a tight second half at a wet DW Stadium.

At full tilt down the right, three Wigan defenders - one level, two ahead of him when he received possession - exerted themselves just to try and keep up with Liverpool's club record signing.

"You saw he had no idea how we defend usually, so he was really not involved in this", he told reporters after the game. And after the game Klopp admitted they had thrown the new arrival into the deep end and it showed with how he defended during his 45 minutes on the field.

"And the goal was maybe the easiest situation in the game, but they played a few wonderful pieces of football: Roberto, Phil, Adam, Gini in the No. 6 position was good".

Klopp was also asked on the status of any further incomings to the club, but said he was not willing to discuss potential signings.

Liverpool will be hoping to mount a serious Premier League title challenge next season under Klopp after they struggled to keep pace with the leaders in the second half of last term.

German newspaper Bild reported on Thursday that RB Leipzig had rejected Liverpool's €65 million offer for midfielder Naby Keita. "I don't know, speak to the wall".

"In the days of non-stability, I think he'd be a ideal one for us to stay with, for as long as we can". As you can imagine, I'm not overly excited about the performance, but it's completely OK.
