Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp has reiterated that Mohamed Salah's goal against Manchester City during their 2-2 draw in the Premier League on Sunday would have made even Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo proud.

Sadio Mane, Phil Foden and Kevin De Bruyne all scored in what was one of the most exciting games of the season, but it was Salah's goal in the 76th minute that stood out and got everyone talking.

Klopp for his part was delighted with the Egyptian's striker, comparing his goal to something that Messi and Ronaldo would be proud of.

"Both were pretty good. The biggest chance we didn't use. I have no idea how Rodri blocked the ball. For me the ball was in, but it's all fine. If Leo Messi for Cristiano Ronaldo score that goal then the world says yes because it's world class," he said post the game.

"He (Salah) is one of the best players in the world, that's how it is."

Salah's goal saw him using his strength to hold of Joao Cancelo, leaving Bernardo Silva for dead before dancing past Aymeric Laporte, with his strike leaving City goalkeeper, Ederson with no chance.

The draw on the night meant that Liverpool and City go into the international break in second and third place in the Premier League table respectively with Chelsea on top.
