Salah, Firmino and Coutinho all made way in the second half as, with victory on the south coast secure, Klopp turned his attention to a huge clash with fellow UEFA Champions League chaser Arsenal at Emirates Stadium on Saturday.

Salah has a way to go if he is to beat Rush's 346 goals in all competitions - Liverpool's leading all-time top scorer - but he's certainly made a good start.

He also expressed that he didn't like the name, "Fab Four" - a term that has started being used to describe the quarter of Salah, Coutinho, Mane and Firmino, and a link to the city's Beatles connections.

"Everyone's a quality player and it's up to the rest of us to get in and among it". It's unbelievable how many points you will probably need at the end of the season to get anything. "Of course we had to look at a lot of his games to see about other parts, physicality, being strong enough for challenges".
