Manchester United kept their faint Premier League titles hopes alive with a 2-1 win at West Bromwich Albion, while Liverpool moved back into the top four with a 4-0 rout of Bournemouth yesterday. 'Of course we had to look at a lot of his games to see about other parts, physicality, being strong enough for challenges.
After coming in for criticism for his rotation policy of the Fab Four during those last two disappointing results, Jürgen Klopp was effusive in his praise as they returned to their winning ways in smashing four past Bournemouth.
Liverpool coach Juergen Klopp has extolled the performance of winger Mohamed Salah, believing the Egypt's worldwide star does not need to be rested despite being a mainstay in the Reds' squad all season.
"It's true he starts often because he is in a very good moment and it is hard to think about leaving him out", said Klopp.
Klopp says there are reasons we are seeing a different Salah this time. In the last worldwide break he did not play for Egypt, he didn't start at Stoke, we take him off as soon as possible.More news: Jazz will re-evaluate Rudy Gobert (knee) in two weeks

Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe was left despondent by the defeat and concedes his side are scrapping to stay in the division.
"There have not been many times since I became Bournemouth manager that I've felt quite like this after a match". The key thing is how we respond, as always, but that was a disappointing watch.
"A very high-profile match and we haven't performed".
"Liverpool were very good and they've got the players who can hurt you".
"We're in a hard situation".
