Klopp explains Salah's, Chamberlain's start with Liverpool

Opinion Oxlade Chamberlain shines for Liverpool as sizeable progression continues

"You can not just play a little bit, you don't know your team-mates, it's all different".

Both Salah and Liverpool team-mate Sadio Mane, meanwhile, could face a 9,000-mile round trip to Ghana for the African Player of the Year awards on January 4.

"But they are not that different".

That is a very courageous thing to say as it is clear that our strikers have lost their scoring boots at the moment, but I guess our luck in front of goal must change at some point.

And he rapped: "The biggest improvement for Oxlade-Chamberlain is being involved in goalscoring situations". He has it, but it was not asked for too much [at Arsenal].

"That says a lot about the style Arsenal choose against use".

"For me, the most important thing is that we turn up with a positive performance - we have been strong at home and it is important we continue to dictate our game at home".

"I'm fine for the moment but I see space for improvement as well, that's good".

Shkodran Mustafi is expected to be fit for Friday's match, but Wenger is not sure whether he will use a three-man defence to combat Liverpool's attack.

At Arsenal, Oxlade-Chamberlain regularly struggled with fitness issues, and with Klopp claiming the Reds were "lucky" this hadn't been a problem so far, there are still reservations.

Klopp praised Chamberlain, saying, "I was happy from the first day about his involvement and attitude and since then, he became more and more a Liverpool player".

"Luck is always involved in this, we aren't responsible for all the injuries, you can not avoid that", he added. That's all I can say about that. "We know now we've got a big game ahead of us at Arsenal, so let's go there and try to get the three points as well".

"[He is] fantastic in the dressing room and thank god he's really, really good on the pitch as well".

The forward set up Mohamed Salah for the Egyptian's 20th goal this season and nearly netted a sensational solo goal after winning the ball in midfield, driving at the Bournemouth defence and unleashing a vicious shot which hit the post.

"If Alex was here in pre-season that would be completely different".

"But, in football, there is always a time to make up for it and, when you can put things right - do it".
