Klopp: The Goals Would Come If Salah Keeps Working

Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp, says Salah has been unlucky with his goal draught but maintains the Egyptian will soon get back to his best form.

The forward has scored only once for Liverpool in two months as they push for a first Premier league title in 29 years

Sadio Mane has been carrying the team in that period, scoring vital goals to help keep the Reds two points ahead of Manchester City having played one game more.

The Egyptian has been advised to draw inspiration from his compatriot when Liverpool resume duties against Spurs after the international break on March 31.

"He is in a really good moment, of course," Jurgen Klopp told Liverpool's official website.

"Sadio played pretty much always like this but now he is always in the right spot in the right moment.

"In football it's sometimes like this. The only thing he did when he was not always in the right spot was work and work and work.

"That's exactly what Mo has to do, exactly the same: just work, do the right things and it will come again. He's just rather unlucky, where Sadio is lucky in the moment – he is in brilliant shape, that's true.

"But then, he is in the right shape and maybe a yard away from him is Mo, but somebody else scored; the cross from Robbo [Andy Robertson, at Fulham], I'm pretty sure Mo would have scored if Gini [Wijnaldum] doesn't get the ball.

"These moments... I was a striker, I had that as well, you think, 'Oh' and then somebody else missed the chance. That's how it is, all good. But, of course, it's a brilliant moment for him [Mane]."

Liverpool will travel to the Saint Mary's after their game against Spurs before hosting Porto in the Champions League quarter-final tie.
