John Arne Riise singled out Mohamed Salah for special praise after the summer signing scored twice in Liverpool's 3-0 win against Southampton at Anfield on Saturday afternoon.

And Klopp has praised his team after the game, saying he was left stunned by Salah's first goal.

Liverpool's pressure finally paid off as man of the moment Salah curled a attractive effort into the top corner to give his side a lead after 32 minutes.

Salah's double was enough to see the Reds take a 2-0 lead into the halftime break.

Needing to peg back the two-goal deficit, the Saints pushed forward early in the second half and nearly caught Liverpool in defensive disarray, as Boufal was free to drive into the penalty area with his shot only to be blocked by Dejan Lovren's timely intervention.

Phillipe Coutinho created space in the box before curling an effort towards goal but his 63rd minute effort went just wide of the upright.

The game was then over midway through the second half as Coutinho fired home the third goal after Fraser Forster had saved following some superb work from Sadio Mane and then Roberto Firmino in the 68th minute. Get the app and get the game.

Liverpool host Southampton at Anfield today and could face transfer target Virgil Van Dijk.
