LIVERPOOL manager Jurgen Klopp admits Mohamed Salah is as unhappy as anyone with his form.

But the Reds boss is far from concerned with his star man's dip at the start of the new season.

The 2018 PFA Player of the Year has struggled to replicate his sensational displays from his debut 12 months at Anfield.

Salah has three goals and one assist in seven Premier League games so far.

And the 26-year-old forward has looked far from his best in recent games against PSG and Chelsea.

Klopp decided to hook the Egyptian in Saturday's 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge when Liverpool were trailing their title rivals.

Substitute Daniel Sturridge struck with two minutes to go to rescue the Reds.

But Klopp, while he admits Salah expects more from himself, insists there is no panic in the Liverpool dressing room yet.

Asked if the player was happy with himself, Klopp replied: "Of course not. How could he be? It's a normal situation.

"But now that's what you have a manager for. We will talk about it.

"It's easy for me because I don't read what you write, maybe the boys do a bit more but that doesn't make too much sense at the moment because you will all dissect (the issue) - a big nice cut and you will find pretty much nothing.

"That's how it is, no problem whatsoever. It's all fine.

"As long as he is working like he works and gets into the situations that he gets in, I'm completely fine and everything will be okay."

Salah was linked with a potential move to Real Madrid during last season before he saw his campaign cruelly brought to a premature end in the Champions League final.

Since his shoulder injury in Ukraine, Salah could not help Egypt get out of their World Cup group in Russia.

And he has looked off the pace in the Premier League.

He has the chance to bounce back, though, on Tuesday away to Napoli in the Champions League and on Sunday in Liverpool's crunch showdown with Manchester City at Anfield.
