Salah Scores 2 As Liverpool Defeat Stoke City


Jurgen Klopp’s decision to rest several key men paid off as Liverpool climbed to fifth with a convincing 3-0 win over Stoke City at the bet365 Stadium on Wednesday.

Mohamed Salah scored twice in a 23-minute cameo off the bench to add to Sadio Mane’s first-half opener and edge the visitors closer to the Premier League’s top four.
Egypt international Salah was one of six players rotated out from the side that drew with Chelsea at the weekend, although the changes failed to prevent the Reds from registering a fourth consecutive away win in this fixture.
Mane, who had not scored in his previous five league appearances, earlier opened the scoring by punishing a sleepy Stoke defence in the 17th minute.

And the Reds all but confirmed another important three points when Salah – who joined the likes of Philippe Coutinho and Jordan Henderson on the bench – fired home from Mane’s cross in the 77th minute.
The in-form attacker completed the rout with his 12th league goal late in proceedings as Klopp’s side leapfrogged Tottenham, while
Stoke – who were aggrieved not to see Simon Mignolet sent off for bringing down Mame Biram Diouf in the first half – slipped to 16th in the table.
