The 27-year-old was not picked to start by Jurgen Klopp on Wednesday night, with Swiss international Xherdan Shaqiri getting the nod ahead of him for the derby, perhaps only for the purpose of giving the 2018/19 joint Premier League Golden Boot winner a rest.

Speaking after the game, however, former Liverpool forward Peter Crouch believes Salah would have been angered by Klopp's decision.

"I think he will be fuming to be on the bench," he told Amazon Prime.

"He will want to be part of that team. He has aspirations for the Golden Boot, we know what he is like.

"He has gone from a winger to a selfish striker. He won't be sat on the bench enjoying that performance.

"He will have been sat there thinking he could have got two or three goals.

"If there is one man who is probably walking away not so pleased, it is probably him."
