Mohamed Salah reveals halftime dressing room discussion vs. Palace


Liverpool came from behind to beat Crystal Palace 4-3 at Anfield on Saturday and Mohamed Salah has revealed what was said at halftime in the dressing room.

Down 1-0 at halftime against the Eagles side that took three points off Manchester City in spectacular fashion in December, it looked as though the Reds were in serious trouble at Anfield on Saturday.

But a brace from Mohamed Salah and a goal apiece from Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane ensured that Jurgen Klopp’s men left Anfield with the three points when it looked as though they’d be lucky to leave with one.

And Salah says that the Liverpool players spoke at halftime and communicated about what was going wrong during the first half.

Salah told BBC Sport post-match: “We expected before the game that the game was going to be very difficult.

“First half they played well and they played well also [in the] second half but they were staying [close] to the box and it was a tough game. But in the end the most important thing for us is the result and we had a good result.

“We conceded three goals, it’s hard a little bit but we have to accept it. This is football and we have to live with that.

“We talked to each other [at half-time] that we had to be strong mentally because this is a tough time.

“This is the most important time for us, when you are struggling you have to be strong in mind, so we talked together and the manager also gave us information and we played well and we deserved the game.”
