Liverpool fans, this should make for some pleasant reading.
Liverpool beat Slovenian minnows NK Maribor 3-0 at Anfield tonight as Jurgen Klopp’s side continued to stride on in the Champions League.
The Reds opened the scoring thanks to Mohamed Salah’s 10th goal of the season, as the Egyptian applied a delicate little touch to Trent Alexander-Arnold’s cross to give his side an early second half lead.
They then had the chance to double their goal tally in the 52nd minute, however James Milner saw his penalty saved by Handanovic in the Maribor goal.

10 goals in 16 games for Salah at Liverpool. Goal record was excellent in Italy and it's going to be excellent here too. Top signing.
