Henderson likens Salah to former Red Luis Suarez

Liverpool's Salah 'on his way' to Messi comparisons, says Klopp

Liverpool's Salah 'on his way' to Messi comparisons, says Klopp

Watford defender Miguel Britos wants to quickly move on from Saturday's 5-0 thrashing at the hands of Liverpool, admitting that he struggled to handle Mohamed Salah.

There is one eye-catching statistic that could blow the whole debate wide open and begin to make people compare the Liverpool man to Messi.

Asked what effect Salah, who also provided the assist for Roberto Firmino's audacious backheel through his legs for Liverpool's third on the night, has on the team Gomez said: "It is indescribable". He has 36 in all competitions this season, the most by a Liverpool player in a debut campaign for the club.

Firmino, who has scored 23 goals this season, told Goal: "No way!" The more players score, the better. "His consistency is good for us". The good thing is that they have a little bit of time they could offer him a chance to win the Premier League but they have to try and push for that and to win the Champions League.

"They are different types of forwards, but both are equally unsafe".

The goals have kept on coming for Liverpool (73 in the Premier League - second behind Manchester City) despite the January transfer of Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona.

The former Chelsea and Roma winger has drawn comparisons to both Lionel Messi and Diego Maradona in recent days, but Henderson thinks Salah is having a similar impact to what the former Reds striker during his time at the club.

Klopp's men booked their place in the Champions League quarter-final draw courtesy of a 5-0 aggregate win against FC Porto in the last 16 earlier this month.

Klopp's team are third in the league, two points behind number two in the league, Manchester United and will play Crystal Palace on March 31.

However, Klopp admitted he can now only wait and hope his key men, including Salah, return safely from two weeks of global duty ahead of a huge month for Liverpool.

Kevin De Bruyne can't stop creating goals at the moment, making the £55 million he was snapped up for look cheap as chips.
