Mohamed Salah immediately looked forward after helping Liverpool chalk up a 2-0 Champions League win against Rangers.

The Reds responded to the frustration of their preceding Anfield draw with Brighton & Hove Albion by producing an assured display to defeat the Scottish visitors on Tuesday night.

Trent Alexander-Arnold’s arcing free-kick opened the scoring in the early stages and Salah dispatched a second-half penalty to secure a second victory in Group A.

The Egyptian now wants Jürgen Klopp’s side to carry the positives from the performance into forthcoming games, with a Premier League trip to Arsenal next up this weekend.

“It’s a good night,” Salah told UEFA post-match.

“Not perfect but it’s important to win the games at home, especially [as] we have a tough group and we lost the first game. We just need to carry on and try to win the next games.”

He added: “We just try to focus on each game, we take one game at a time because in the Premier League also we are not in our form.

“We just try to think of each game and be first in the group in the Champions League and also try to win in the Premier League.”

Klopp opted for a change in set-up for the clash with Rangers, deploying four forwards as Luis Diaz, Diogo Jota and Darwin Nunez teamed up with Salah as chief attackers.

“The gaffer told us yesterday about the formation and we just tried to adapt,” said Salah. “I think it was working well, we created many chances in the first half and second half, we tried to score.

“It’s an offensive formation. It was good for all of us up front, especially because we all want to score goals. It worked well today.”
