Mohamed Salah scored twice to reach a half-century of Liverpool goals in a comfortable 4-0 midweek victory over Red Star Belgrade in the Champions League.

Liverpool ran out 4-0 winners against Red Star Belgrade in their Champions League group C tie, seeing them lead the group on six points.

The Reds striker; Mo Salah, Roberto Firmino, and Sadio Mane put up some great efforts to score four goals as Liverpool went on to pick all three points against the Serbian side.

"It's still an exciting place for us to be, especially where we were two years ago, and the fans know the boys are giving everything for the cause".

That was the sort of chance Salah has missed plenty of in the early weeks of the season to spark concern that he will fail to match the standards set in an incredible 44-goal debut campaign at Anfield.

Klopp has called on the Anfield crowd to get behind the side and ensure there is no danger of complacency against a team who recorded their first league win of the season only last week.

"I think that's it pretty much". Hopefully that will continue.

Klopp said he was sure that Salah would acknowledge the important role of the team's providers.

Reacting moments after the game, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp said: "I think he would say thanks to his teammates because it's quite hard to score goals without these wonderful passes and crosses", the German noted, even as he was quick to add.

"The first goal he scored was a genius little link-up play by Shaq (Xherdan Shaqiri)".

Salah could quite easily bag a hat-trick against Cardiff which would see him level-pegging with current leading scorer Eden Hazard, who has been on fire this season.

The Switzerland worldwide was fined during the World Cup after he celebrated a goal against Serbia by making an eagle gesture, a symbol similar to the one on the Albanian flag.
