Egypt's Salah scores with superb flick as Liverpool crush Maribor

Klopp's Reds host Huddersfield in the league on Saturday afternoon at Anfield

"Now we are in a good positioning in the Champions League and hopefully we will be in the next round".

They could even afford another squandered missed penalty, a fourth in succession at Anfield, as James Milner missed his second in a row having scored his first 10 for the club.

The Reds were left frustrated throughout the first half as the hosts were unable to make the breakthrough against their plucky opponents.

Maribor's best chance fell to Martin Milec, but his low drive was collected by Loris Karius, the only save he made in the match.

Pat Nevin has urged Jurgen Klopp to address Liverpool's defensive problems in the January transfer window or potentially risk missing out on a top-four spot.

Liverpool have had no issues scoring goals so far this season but defensively they have been woeful at times, conceding 15 times on their travels in the league.

Sevilla's victory over Spartak Moscow leaves Liverpool - who wrapped up the win through Daniel Sturridge - top with eight points ahead of their matchday five meeting against the LaLiga side, while bottom side Maribor can mathematically still qualify, but are four points adrift.

In their previous game against Huddersfield, Liverpool were goalless at half-time but went on to put three second-half goals past the Terriers.

Liverpool peppered Maribor's deep-lying defense with crosses in the first half but the visitors held firm, with goalkeeper Jasmin Handanovic tipping a deflected header from Roberto Firmino onto the bar.

However, summer signing Mohamed Salah ended Maribor's resistance in the 49th minute with a deft finish to calm Liverpool's nerves at Anfield.

Moments later a brilliant piece of Firmino trickery drew a foul off Rajcevic but Milner, back on penalty duties after Salah's miss at the weekend, saw his shot tipped onto a post.

But their persistence paid off when German global Can gave his side breathing space with a well-taken finish, before England striker Sturridge came off the bench to net in back-to-back games for the first time since the start of this year.
