Luis Suarez: If I score at Anfield, I won't celebrate

Luis Suarez: If I score at Anfield, I won't celebrate

Liverpool coach Juergen Klopp has confirmed Mohamed Salah can not play against Barcelona in the Champions League on Tuesday.

It is maybe why Klopp wants to say the Reds have a "chance" rather than coming across as supremely confident they will pull off another European comeback at Anfield.

But Jurgen Klopp confirmed today that concussion protocol means the current Golden Boot leader can not play tomorrow.

Salah suffered a concussion in an aerial challenge with Newcastle goalkeeper Martin Dubravka on Saturday, after which he was treated on the pitch for around five minutes before being stretchered off, during his side's 3-2 win. Without the Premier League's leading goalscorer and Firmino, Klopp could be forced to play both Divock Origi and Daniel Sturridge in attack alongside Sadio Mane.

Liverpool trail Barcelona 3-0 on aggregate. Two of the best strikers in the world are not available and we have to score four goals.

Liverpool's play Wolves at Anfield in the final game of the season and will be glad to be able to count on the league's top scorer, with Salah two ahead of Manchester City's Sergio Aguero in the goalscoring charts.

"We know this is a guy who would run over his granny to score a goal, but everyone should have some respect for those who have been good to you in the past, but Suarez threw the support Liverpool gave him back in our faces". We had one player, Oliver Kirch, who had only played a couple of games, but he played an unbelievable game that night against Madrid.

Without it, they must produce the ideal performance both in attack and defence as one goal for Barcelona would leave Liverpool needing five to progress to the final in Madrid on 1 June.

He said: 'We need to ignore the first leg, it would be an error otherwise, ' Valverde told reporters.

"We have had decent results this season where we have scored more than three goals and being at home helps us".

Now, if Liverpool are to reach a second consecutive Champions League final, they will have to repeat that feat against the Catalan giants at Anfield on Tuesday night.

"It's possible and it's likely that it's our last Champions League game for this campaign, so let's celebrate it with our legs, with our lungs and we'll see what the outcome is".
