Jürgen Klopp has no concerns about Mohamed Salah's condition, crediting the forward's natural fitness for allowing him to top the appearances list so far this season.

The Egyptian has played 25 games for the Reds since signing from AS Roma in the summer – more than any of his teammates in all competitions in 2017-18.

Salah’s goal return during that run is remarkable, with the No.11 boasting a tally of 19, the same number he scored at club level in the entirety of the previous campaign.

Klopp has rung the changes repeatedly as Liverpool contend with a congested fixture schedule but the manager has explained why his most prolific attacker is equipped to cope without a rest.

“He had time out already. In the last international break he did not play for Egypt, he didn’t start at Stoke, we take him off as soon as possible. That’s how it is,” he said.

“I am not sure he played a lot more minutes than other players in our team, but it is true he starts often. It’s because he is in a very, very good moment and it is difficult to think about leaving him out.

“He is always a natural fit player. We talk a lot to the medical department and it is really rare that [there are] any issues with him. You don’t hear that he’s had a problem here or a problem there, that’s a big thing.

“When you hear the name of a player twice from the medical department it is pretty clear he is not in the squad or on the bench. That’s how it works [at] these times. We and he have been lucky so far that there is nothing around him.”
