Klopp explains ‘world-class’ Salah substitution against Chelsea

Sturridge came on for James Milner late on at Stamford Bridge and sent a stunning 25-yard shot past Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga to rescue a point for Klopp's side after Eden Hazard had opened the scoring.

Liverpool's front three, who terrorised defences last season, had looked uncharacteristically out of sorts before Sturridge was introduced as an 86th-minute substitute.

"Changes when nobody is injured are always tactical".

"He is a fantastic football player and he had a good pre-season, and he is in the best shape since I know him", Klopp told reporters. It was not the best game of Mo's career, that's 100%.

"But he constantly gets into situations and that makes him a world class player". You fail, you miss, whatever, that happens. But he wants to be decisive. I imagine he was really frustrated because training with him and watching him shows he has got so much ability but he couldn't get himself fit enough to play at the intensity he wants him to.

"It's like riding a bike". It is not like you wake up in the morning and you can not finish any more, or you can not ride a bike anymore. That's how it is, you only need to work for these moments when it's clicking. "And that is the moment he is in". "It's really OK. We have to deal with the situation but it is not hard".

'We played good football and getting these chances in the box are not simple against Chelsea.

"It's really cool, I'm really happy for him. That's the period he is in, no problem with that, so all good".

And those comparisons with Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi are now beginning to look a touch outlandish, with the game's two greatest modern players so far ahead of the rest due to their ability to score at such incredible rates year after year.

"I think the fact they're away from home and I feel like there's a weakness at the back with Chelsea".

"We gave them one proper chance, they used it and we didn't use ours".
