Roma wanted to avoid Liverpool, claims Salah

Speaking before Friday's draw, Salah said that he had already been in touch with his former teammates to congratulate them for overcoming Barcelona in the quarter-final. "That's my target, I want to score, I want to help the team to win again", Salah said. You saw the two games against Barcelona. We had been very shut to at least one one other and we're good associates. Of course, I have happy memories.

"We mature constantly. The boys get more and more used to situations like that", said Klopp after beating City for a third time in four meetings this season.

"He is wonderful, unbelievable".

Salah added: "I'm very proud to see myself fighting to break the record for the Premier League".

"Because I knew I'd have to say something, I tried to think about what I feel, but it was not that I thought: "Thank God, not Bayern, thank God, not Real Madrid, yippee, Roma" or the other way around", Klopp told the Liverpool website.

But if Liverpool can overcome Roma, could it win the competition for a sixth time?

Just like everyone else, we've run out of superlatives to describe Mohamed Salah amidst his sensational debut season at Liverpool. If we now always start talking after one year of 'will he leave?', or whatever, then I don't think about it.

"We don't care who we get - we know how hard it's going to be and we need to try and work so hard to get to the final because we need to deserve it".

"They play number nine, I play as a winger more".
