Liverpool prioritise safety after fan assaulted before Roma Champions League tie

You can't do that in the Champions League- Henderson rues late lapse

Liverpool-Roma supporter clashes — two arrested, one in critical condition

Jonathan Northcroft from newspaper The Sunday Times said the "attack was sudden", albeit adding that the outnumbered Roma fans were chased away before police could arrive.

The Egypt global revealed that he spoke to several Roma players in the immediate aftermath of the Champions League semi-final draw, while Nainggolan admitted that he felt Liverpool was the most hard tie available.

The 19-year-old was at a loss, however, to put into words the quality of Salah's two goals.

Liverpool's attack of Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino tore Roma apart, exposing Di Francesco's decision to go with a three-man defence.

According to Dominic King, even an offer in the region of £200 million wouldn't necessarily sway Klopp's mind and after reluctantly selling Philippe Coutinho in the winter transfer window, it is hugely unlikely that the German manager will sell his best player again in the following transfer window.

There is no doubt that Salah's season's statistics are impressive, but he must, of course, recreate such form for many seasons to come if he is to match the influence of Messi and Ronaldo, scorers of 100 and 121 Champions League goals respectively.

"This all pales in comparison to how the family of the Liverpool fan badly hurt before last night's game must be feeling", he said.

Salah doubled the score seconds before the whistle when he chipped the ball over Allison to end the first half 2-0. Salah didn't celebrate either of his goals, out of respect for his former teammates, but he made them suffer by setting up goals for the other members of Liverpool's devastating forward line.

Alexander-Arnold was left to rue the late lapses.

"They had different styles and this style suits him perfectly". "Since I arrived Liverpool always had to take a slightly more hard way, but, in the end, mostly still a successful way and that's what we will try in Roma", said Klopp. This is a player whose place on the podium of the world's best is undeniable at the moment. "It's great to watch him scoring his goals and growing in confidence, he produces cool finishes day in and day out and it's become second nature to him now, but I can't say I really like it when he does that stuff to me". But he's shown that you can work at your game and go beyond what anyone would imagine.

"We need to take this little percentage of a chance to try to do what we did against Barcelona", said Monchi, the Spaniard who previously did a wonderful job at Sevilla.
