Of course, Salah soon shut all of those Liverpool fans up with his 40th goal of his debut campaign at Anfield after heading in from a brilliant Trent Alexander-Arnold goal.
He did something that only two of Liverpool's other goalscoring greats had ever managed, bringing up 40 goals in a season for them.
It still looked for long periods as though Liverpool would fail to add to the lead secured early by Mane in a one-sided match, but Salah predictably sealed the win to move five clear of Harry Kane in the Golden Boot race ahead of the Tottenham man's clash with City later in the day. "Ian doesn't look that old", Klopp quipped. A lot of times we are in a position shooting and they can not always give the ball to him. For around about 75 minutes a fantastic game and then somebody closed our power and the boys felt the intensity of the last few weeks.
"Our creativity in our team has returned, our confidence in front of goal has returned, we have come back a lot late on in games".
"A good performance, and very, very, very, very important after an outstanding week when everyone has been saying how good, you are into the semi-final", Klopp told BBC Sport.
There was certainly a "wow" factor about the manner in which Salah claimed his 40th, and the 30th in the league this season, after 69 minutes. It's good and impressive - what a number, wow!
"And what a number we scored as a team in the whole season, that's insane. Yes, it's extraordinary. (Salah) knows that the kind of (football) we play suits him".
Liverpool's number nine Roberto Firmino made it three after a display of individual skill as he beat Begovic in the right-hand corner of the post. What a number we scored as a team in the season - it's insane. You saw the boys looking for him, searching for him a little bit too much.
"They showed [how good they are] on the European stage and today they showed that in the Premier League", he said.
With Anfield in the mood to celebrate the superb midweek Champions League victory over Manchester City, Mane gave the home crowd something to cheer about when he met a seventh-minute cross from Jordan Henderson. We fight always for Champions League - in the Premier League and in the Champions League.
U.S. 'locked and loaded' to strike Syria again if new attack
But that is to trivialize Assad's offense and suggest that the US commander in chief can't or shouldn't act because he's besieged. Now that the extent and nature of the strikes are much clearer, my assessment is that they will not achieve their stated goal .
