Mohamed Salah talks new Liverpool plan as Sadio Mane admission emerges

Here are your Liverpool evening headlines for Wednesday, October 5.

Mohamed Salah speaks out on new Liverpool plan

Liverpool star Mohamed Salah says Tuesday night's performance against Rangers 'wasn't perfect' and they must 'carry on' and turn things around this season.

Jurgen Klopp 's side picked up a crucial 2-0 victory at Anfield to remain second in group A in the Champions League and go three points clear of Ajax in third. A free-kick from Trent Alexander-Arnold and a second-half penalty from Salah proved to be enough on the night.

It was an improvement on recent games as they drew 3-3 with Brighton at the weekend, but the Egyptian insists there is still work to be done.

“It’s a good night,” he told UEFA after the game. “Not perfect but it’s important to win the games at home, especially (as) we have a tough group and we lost the first game. We just need to carry on and try to win the next games.

“We just try to focus on each game, we take one game at a time because in the Premier League also we are not in our form. We just try to think of each game and be first in the group in the Champions League and also try to win in the Premier League."


Luis Diaz speaks out on Sadio Mane exit

Liverpool star Luis Diaz says his teammates were 'gutted' when Sadio Mane decided to leave in favour of a move to Bayern Munich.

The winger departed Anfield this summer after six years at Anfield in a deal in a £35m move. Mane has so far scored seven goals in all competitions for his new club, including one in their Champions League group stage victory over Viktoria Plzen on Tuesday night.

Diaz joined Liverpool from Porto in January and has become an integral member of the team under Jurgen Klopp . The winger, though, says a player of Mane's calibre would be a big miss for any club.

“The team was gutted," he told TNT Sports Brasil . "Obviously he’s a player that will be missed in any club.

"He’s gone to a big club and is working to achieve his goals. And we’re conscious of the big group we have here, we’re working hard every day to improve. Everybody’s here to help and that shows in games.”

Diaz has been a shining light in what has been a difficult start to the season for Liverpool . The Colombia international has scored four goals in all competitions this term, including a crucial equaliser at home to Crystal Palace earlier in the campaign.

He's opened up on the Reds' tough start and what's been missing for the team in the first part of the season.
