Scoring Salzburg pose threat to Liverpool's hopes of progressing

Dejan Lovren was a doubt for Tuesday's match against Red Bull Salzburg

Plenty of Liverpool fans are understandably in very high spirits after watching the reigning European champions top Group E with a 2-0 win over RB Salzburg.

Jurgen Klopp started his front three for the first time in three games as Liverpool FC looked to secure their place in the Champions League knockout stage.

Salah ran down Salzburg's goal, rounded onrushing keeper Cican Stankovic before placing his effort inside the far post from an impossible angle.

Klopp had some more good news to report, with Georginio Wijnaldum fit and available after missing the Bournemouth game with a knock.

Defeat against Red Bull Salzburg in Austria would mean the end of their defence of the Champions League and that is not a scenario they dare not contemplate.

Klopp said: "We hope that it's exactly the same as last time".

"Everybody knows it's a final and we're prepared".

"Salzburg needs to win against us and we are there". Then you see how good they are, how good they were in the first game, how good they were against Napoli and Genk and then you could come here as the current Champions League victor and misunderstand that situation. We know where we have to go.

Watch Salzburg v Liverpool exclusively live on BT Sport 3 HD from 5.15pm on Tuesday evening.

Instead, he'll have to settle for joint top, scoring in his first five Champions League games.

The 30-year-old Croatia worldwide central defender started the game against the Cherries, but he was taken off after just 40 minutes. "How do you defend an exceptional striker?"

"Thank God I don't have to [explain the finish], it was for sure the most hard situation he had tonight", said Klopp. Yes, there are limits and if the boys play like this then it makes it easier for us but they have to be ready and try to achieve their goals always like they did tonight.

Half a season has nearly been played and Liverpool are suddenly looking like a team that could sweep the board in terms of silverware.

"He felt something and we made the decision".
