Klopp pleased Liverpool not reliant on Salah

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is glad to see his team not as reliant on Mohamed Salah.

The Egyptian missed a few chances against Bayern Munich on Wednesday night, but Sadio Mane scored twice to secure the Reds place in the Champions League quarter-finals.

Speaking before this weekend's clash with Fulham, Klopp said: "It's good that we've split the goals a little bit. We have 73 points now and each goal we have scored has brought us there.

"Who scores is not important. If Sadio didn't score for five games or so he might not score that first but it came so naturally."
