Klopp backs Salah to break EPL record

Salah, 25, failed to score in the 0-0 draw with Stoke City and the 1-0 defeat to Chelsea this weekend, which has seen him stuck on 31 goals for the season.

The Egypt international needs just one more strike to become the highest scoring player in one Premier League season and usurp the 31-goal record which Shearer, Ronaldo and Suarez all achieved.

Amid the diving controversy against the Blues, Klopp still backed his star man to make history in the final game of the season against Brighton at Anfield.

"He can do much better [than the last two games]. He will score again no doubt about that," the German said after the defeat to Chelsea, as quoted by the Liverpool Echo.

Overall, Salah has netted 43 goals and registered 15 assists in 50 games across all competitions.
