Senegal worldwide Sadio Mane says Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp pushed the club's playing staff to stay "angry" in the build-up to Saturday's 3-0 win over Bournemouth in order to guard against complacency.
The Reds suffered no hangover from their progression to the Champions League semi-finals with a 3-0 victory over the Cherries on Saturday at Anfield, a day before the 29th anniversary of the Hillsborough disaster.
Speaking to Liverpool FC's website after the game, Mane said when asked for his thoughts on Salah's form: "Incredible".
City game, you have to concentrate more because you usually know how it [can go].
Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino have proved to be too hot to handle for almost every opponent this season and so it proved again as the Cherries were blown away by Klopp's rampant side.
"We played well and created many chances, scored three goals and it was well deserved".
Syria shoots down missiles over air bases
The reported strike comes days after the US, UK and France bombed Syrian military facilities over a suspected gas attack in Douma. A local reporter for The Arab News said Israeli warplanes were spotted in Syrian airspace just before the missiles were reported.
That was Salah's 40th goal of the season for the Reds and he has now also netted a staggering 30 times in the Premier League this season. Bobby also scored and I'm happy for him as well.
"Salah deserves to be crowned Footballer of the Year and to carry off the Premier League's Golden Boot but a bigger picture has emerged that is more important than all of that now".
"I always enjoy playing alongside these great players and if you play with these kinds of players it's always easy to understand each other".
Mane continued: "It was not an easy week for us because it was too close to play each game but as professionals we tried to do it and everything [went] well".
"At half-time we were in the game but their second goal came out of the blue, the ball from Trent Alexander-Arnold and Mohamed Salah's header were unbelievable, we were kicking ourselves really because we always believed we could come back if there was one goal in it".
