Roma pose different threat to Liverpool, warns Phil Thompson

Jurgen Klopp has warned Mohamed Salah not to expect any friendly treatment when he reunites with his former Roma team-mates on Tuesday night at Anfield, and told him to expect some heavy early challengers from the Italian defenders.

Salah has scored 41 goals in 46 appearances in all competition in his debut season for Liverpool and was named PFA Player of the Year by his peers on Sunday. Liverpool is not only Salah, Liverpool has a number of good players.

"But I feel like he's in a great place with a great set of lads and a great manager going in the right direction". He's a big part of that now and I'm sure he will be for many years to come.

Salah was also prolific at Roma, scoring 33 goals over two seasons, but asked if he was surprised at the breakout season, Pallotta said: "Honestly, yes".

"Roma actually played very well in the first-leg against Barcelona and we saw them battle Barca into submission, so we've got to be ready for that".

"He's one of the best managers in the world".

"So we haven't prepared this game with one player in mind".

Tom Hardy reveals that new Venom trailer will premiere at CinemaCon tonight
Sadly, probably not as Sony own the rights to Venom and Marvel don't seem eager to strike a deal with the giants. That was bound to change soon as Hardy confirmed a new trailer was coming , but a leak beat the official footage.

"Off the field he's a fantastic human". History does count, even though none of this Liverpool team were born when Roma were beaten in 1984, but Klopp and his players would prefer to be free of the pressure that expectation brings.

He added: "We have been a lot stronger since Virgil van Dijk has been in the defence, the 'keeper has been better and so have Dejan Lovren, while Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andrew Robertson have been really impressive. He's an fantastic manager and everybody in the squad feels privileged to be working with him".

"This wonderful city, we can show everyone how wonderful it is".

Roma defender Aleksandar Kolarov insists the Serie A outfit can not focus all their efforts on stopping Liverpool's Mohamed Salah when the two sides meet in the Champions League semi-finals.

Di Francesco said he has yet to decide whether Turkish forward Cengiz Under or Czech Patrik Schick will partner Edin Dzeko in attack saying they both had a "50 percent" chance of starting.
