​Stoke boss Hughes stresses Liverpool pose a threat overall not just Salah

Stoke boss Hughes stresses Liverpool pose a threat overall not just Salah

Stoke boss Mark Hughes says his team must be aware of the threat posed by the whole Liverpool team and not become preoccupied with prolific scorer Mo Salah.

"We are facing a player in Mohamed Salah who is clearly in the best form of his Liverpool career," said Hughes. "He has real technical quality and crucially, pace.

"But we can't be overly concerned with one player though because they have match winners all over the pitch. We need to nullify them on Wednesday.

"People say Liverpool are OK going forward but every time you attack them they concede but that isn't the case.

"They play with a high tempo and press which is maybe why they sometimes get caught out."
