Jurgen Klopp ponders Mohamed Salah decision ahead of Leeds United vs Liverpool clash

Jurgen Klopp says he will 'talk' with Mohamed Salah over whether he will remain Liverpool's penalty-taker.

Liverpool came from two goals behind to draw 2-2 against Premier League leaders Arsenal at Anfield on Sunday. Salah reduced the deficit for Liverpool in the 42nd minute before Roberto Firmino equalised three minutes from time.

However, Salah's penalty miss earlier in the second half has led to questions over his capabilities from the spot. The Egyptian international also missed a penalty in the 1-0 defeat against Bournemouth last month.

The Reds face Leeds United at Elland Road in their next outing, and Klopp addressed Salah's penalty miss in his post-match press conference.

"That's something we will talk about but not here. I only saw the penalty after the game," Klopp added after Liverpool's draw against Arsenal.

"A few people in the crowd reacted, so when you don't see the penalty, you react on what people see and a few people obviously thought the ball was in but it wasn't.

"He missed the goal. So that's why for a second the fist, and then I realised, 'Oh, Mo isn't celebrating'. And then I realised the ball wasn't in. That's it."
