Liverpool hope to maintain perfect EPL record

Liverpool recently fought their way back to register a 4-3 win against Red Bull Salzburg on matchday two of the UEFA Champions League. The Reds looked dicey in defence, especially Virgil Van Dijk, as they surrendered a three-goal lead at home. Mohammed Salah scored the winning goal on the night to hand Klopp’s men all three points. Joel Matip’s absence was obvious on Wednesday night and Klopp will hope that Joe Gomez and Van Dijk can thwart the attacking prowess of James Maddison and Jamie Vardy at Anfield.
