Defensive frailty was a major criticism of Liverpool last season, but the acquisition of Virgin van Dijk has helped steady the ship.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp says the club "do not expect" Mohamed Salah to replicate his goalscoring form of last season - and joked his forward is facing "a crisis".

Liverpool have won all six games this season to make a flawless start and look a dominant force even without their talisman on top of his game.

Klopp, whose side have begun the season in great style and are yet to drop a point after five Premier League matches despite Salah's lack of goals, admitted the Egyptian's superb record had raised expectations. "I told him before the game, I've never seen him - since I've [been here] - as fit as he is at the moment".

"People are very positive about this player, or this player, or this player".

Klopp will take charge of his 600th game as a coach when Liverpool meet Southampton on Saturday.

"Yes, he [Firmino] is ready", Klopp said.
