Chelsea to meet Liverpool

LONDON - Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah has nothing to prove when he faces his former employers Chelsea in the Premier League this weekend, his manager Juergen Klopp said on Friday.

Chelsea signed Salah in 2014, but he only made 19 appearances before being loaned to Italian side Fiorentina the following season.

He went out on loan again, to AS Roma, who eventually signed him in 2016, before Liverpool broke their transfer record to bring him to Merseyside before the current campaign got underway.

Salah has been a revelation since returning to England, and is the league's top scorer so far with nine goals in 12 appearances.

Klopp put Salah's struggles at Chelsea down to inexperience, saying he was not surprised the Egypt international failed to force his way into a side full of seasoned players who won the title the season after he was first loaned out.

"He was very young, in a very strong team and he didn't come through. That happens very often," Klopp tsaid,

"Another player in a similar situation is Kevin de Bruyne... doing not too bad for (Manchester) City now. It was difficult in these times to come into the team. They had a fantastic offensive line and were successful."

Belgian De Bruyne is in form, with his range of passing and eye for goal making him a formidable threat for the league leaders.
