  • Mohamed Salah netted against Manchester City

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp says Mohamed Salah is injury free after the Egypt global marked his return with a goal in the worldwide Champions Cup win over Manchester City.

The Senegal global came on at half-time at the MetLife Stadium and was a constant threat for the Reds.

'I was going to say Chelsea because of the new manager effect, the team start to perform better especially the first couple of matches but I think Liverpool above them because they've bought better players, so I'll stick to the same four as previous year'.

"You saw the difference when Sadio came on".

Liverpool will continue their pre-season preparations against Manchester United on Saturday night while City will take on Bayern Munich in the International Champions Cup. I am looking forward to seeing a lot of my friends tomorrow. So I don't see any reason why he'd want to go. And if we win a game, that's cool.

City's club-record signing Riyad Mahrez created the first chance for Lukas Nmecha and his shot was unconvincingly parried straight back to him by Karius, only for Fabinho to scramble in a challenge as the 19-year-old striker looked to tap it into an empty net.

Guardiola however sounded a positive note about the absentees. "Don't find excuses", he said. "We made some changes and in the last few minutes, Liverpool deserved to score goals".

"In the past it didn't happen, years ago, and that is good for our future".

"I am pretty sure they are going to have a good season. It's as simple as that".

After a goalless first half, City opened the scoring shortly after the break when Leroy Sane drove through the Liverpool defence before firing low in to the bottom corner for 1-0 in the 57th minute.

"For the last 15 minutes, we were so exhausted".

The game appeared to be heading for a draw until Tosin Adarabioyo crashed into Dominic Solanke in the area for a certain penalty. Mane wasted two golden chances in the final five minutes to wrap up the victory before sending Hart the wrong way from the spot.
