Roma defenders were terrified of Salah — Robbie Fowler

Roma defenders were terrified of Salah — Robbie Fowler

Struggling Saints had not won in the top flight at St Mary's since November but the recalled Tadic changed that with a goal in either half to end a nine-game winless league run.

When the Egypt forward broke clear and dinked the ball over goalkeeper Jack Butland, most of Anfield started to celebrate.

Wilfried Zaha scored Palace's first and laid on their second for James McArthur while substitute Christian Benteke rounded off the rout with a penalty.

Klopp even took offence to the Liverpool supporters, who grew audibly frustrated with a number of misplaced passes. He continues to battle at The Walton Centre, where his family are at his bedside. For all the boys, they are used to that.

Paul Lambert had organised his Stoke team brilliantly in defence to counter the Liverpool attack and it worked perfectly as it proved to be the cause of frustration for the home team. A fund set up to aid the victim and his family has raised more than €70,000 in donations. Neither will be an easy task.

The two clubs go head-to-head at the Olimpico on Wednesday evening as Roma look to overturn a 5-2 deficit for a place in the Final.

Liverpool have suffered in Rome before. Whenever they were, van Dijk was on hand to absorb the pressure, winning everything in aerial situations. "That was the best Erik has played under me". "We have to see".

Others appear less willing. Not watch the game and think 'oh that's a sh*t pass', everybody saw it's a sh*t pass, you don't have to meet it with 'ohhh'.

However, despite Klopp's words, it was almost inevitable the intensity of that thrilling victory over the Italian side would not be replicated against Stoke. It makes you angry because it should be so easy to stop these problems. Since retiring in 1991, Lee has held various coaching positions at Bolton, Liverpool, Southampton, England, Crystal Palace and, since December, as assistant with the Reds' arch-rivals Everton. I don't really give a shit about the score of the game. We believe we represent two peoples of incredible energy and joy and loyalty. The Baggies need to beat Spurs at the Hawthorns and Palace at Selhurst Park to move to 34 points. They will hope they are celebrating their side's progress by that point. "No one was seriously injured so we carry on", Klopp said. This role required slightly less defensive work from the youngster which perhaps, suits him well.

But Gomez is adamant that the Reds' attacking trident of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino remains key to progressing to the final.
