Shaqiri: I can handle trip to Red Star Belgrade

Mohamed Salah continued his return to scoring form by taking his tally for Liverpool to 50 goals as the five-time European champions eased past Red Star Belgrade 4-0 at Anfield.

Salah's confident finish after a clever pass from the excellent Xherdan Shaqiri put Liverpool 2-0 up and the Egyptian added his second from the penalty spot after the break.

However, what we need to consider is that the manager is looking longer term, and in batches of games rather than simply one at a time as the classic cliché goes. It only happens if you work hard, if you are in the right space, if your team-mates see you in the right moments and if you make the right runs then you can score. It's an exceptional number and hopefully he can continue.

"I just want to say, "thankyou" for that", said Shaqiri. That helps a little bit because I'm not in doubt, he was not in doubt, but if you are constantly asked about it then it's like, something obviously is wrong.

Jurgen Klopp said he would gather more information about the controversy. I saw him celebrating but I couldn't see his face from that distance.

"You can not win a game 4-0 if most of the things are not really good and tonight most of the things were really good. The most important thing is to win as a team and the game was brilliant from everyone".

Summer signing Fabinho also impressed at Anfield on Wednesday in what was just his second start for Liverpool following his €50 million move from Monaco.

A stance that has previously proven to be quite divisive amongst the Serbian fans (a country that fails to recognise Kosovan independence), Shaqiri famously marked a goal at the 2018 World Cup against Serbia with the 'double-headed eagle' celebration.

Red Star were banned from selling tickets to their fans for the first two away games of this season's Champions League after fans caused disturbances, invaded the pitch and set off fireworks during their qualifier against RB Salzburg in August.
