Salah, Mane aren't "out-and-out goalscorers", says Liverpool legend

Porto coach Sergio Conceicao is hoping his stingy defence can thwart the Liverpool offensive

Porto coach Sergio Conceicao is hoping his stingy defence can thwart the Liverpool offensive

Suarez netted 31 goals that season.

He has also been in top form in the Champions League for Klopp's side, scoring six goals and making one assist in seven games.

At this rate, Liverpool will have a job on their hands retaining Salah's services.

And there has been some suggestions that Salah's form could see him linked with one of the Spanish giants again.

He has reached the 30-goal mark quicker than any other Liverpool player since George Allan 121 years ago and he has more than two months left to add to this season's total before heading off to the World Cup with Egypt.

Salah has contributed 30 of those, Firmino 21 and Mane 12, but former Reds star Barnes still believes that the club need to find an "out-and-out goalscorer" this summer.

"Wenger always said to us every year, it's the league, it's 38 games".

"I know it already we can compete with them, I don't have to look at them", Klopp said. "We don't have players like that".

And Liverpool piled more pain on Porto in the 85th minute, Mane completing his hat-trick with a superb finish.

Asked why his side have been able to quickly draw a line under the Coutinho transfer saga, Henderson told reporters: "Because we still have a lot of quality players like Salah, Mane and Firmino, who create chances".

"I think we need to get better individual players now".

Erm... if you say so, John.

In fact, it's hard to imagine any Liverpool fans actually agreeing with Barnes' freaky statement. Salah had assisted him for the first, Firmino repaid the favour for the second.

So far Jurgen Klopp's side have not truly missed the Brazil worldwide since his £142million January move to Barcelona. Have your say by leaving a comment below.

Liverpool fans: do you agree with Barnes or is he talking complete rubbish?
