Jurgen Klopp was back in front of the media at Melwood on Friday afternoon. But sadly, the first question did not concern Sunday's massive match, but the racist chanting directed toward Mohamed Salah by what is claimed to be Chelsea supporters ahead of their side's Europa League match in Prague on Thursday night. The Liverpool manager speaks strongly and passionately on the subject before talk turns to football and the visit of Chelsea. Klopp is happy to talk about the current Chelsea team, but understandably, has no interest in going over what happened almost five years to that fateful day when the two teams met at Anfield. Klopp is also questioned on the dilemmas he has over Jordan Henderson, and at centre-back now that Joe Gomez is fit, while he lavishes praise on the Reds fanbase. He also gives a great answer when asked how do you defend against Eden Hazard, before the press conference rounds off with his thoughts on the form of Naby Keita. Enjoy - and we'll be back later with the Blood Red podcast.
