Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp praises Mo Salah for his two goals against Roma and says he is world class but not the world's best.

Klopp said :"He has a massive impact of course, I like the other boys of course as well but the first goal is just a genius strike, so he's scored already a few like this so it make it even more special, it makes clear it's no coincidence and the second goal was brilliant play."

Liverpool, inspired by two-goal Egyptian Mohamed Salah, took a big step towards the Champions League final with a 5-2 win over AS Roma in their semi-final, first leg at Anfield on Tuesday (April 24).

The two late Roma goals, however, will give the Italians, who came back from 4-1 down to beat Barcelona in the previous round, some hope of an upset in the return game next Wednesday.

A pair of superbly taken goals from Salah, against his former club, gave Juergen Klopp's side a 2-0 lead at halftime and Liverpool simply ripped Roma apart after the break.

A Sadio Mane goal and then two Roberto Firmino goals put Liverpool 5-0 up and Klopp felt comfortable enough to take off Salah, who had been outstanding.

Yet Edin Dzeko struck for the visitors in the 81st minute and four minutes later Diego Perotti converted a penalty to generate some tension for the return in Rome.
