Jurgen Klopp hailed Mohamed Salah as one of the best players on the planet after his “world-class” goal against Manchester City.

Salah scored a stunning individual effort in Sunday’s 2-2 draw at Anfield when he danced through the City defence before firing past Ederson.

“If Leo Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo score that goal then the world says it's world class,” said Klopp.

“He (Salah) is one of the best players in the world, that's how it is."

Salah has started the season in sparkling form and has now scored six goals in the Premier League.

His goal put Liverpool 2-1 ahead after 76 minutes but Kevin De Bruyne equalised for City five minutes later.

Klopp admitted a point was a fair result after City dominated the first half.

“Thank god a football game has two halves,” said the Liverpool manager.

“We are really happy about the second and not so happy about the first for obvious reasons.

“We did a lot of things wrong in the first half and City did a lot of things right in the first half so we never got really in the game.

“We weren't much worse, we never played enough football. I was most happy in my career about the half-time whistle.

“It was never planned that we played like this and we needed half-time and we used half-time and played a really good second half.”
