Barcelona and Liverpool in contact over swap deal for Mohamed Salah

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has confirmed Mohamed Salah can not play against Barcelona in the Champions League on Tuesday (Wednesday NZT).

This is an unbelievable comeback by Liverpool, down their best player and facing almost impossible odds to keep their season alive.

Holding a 3-0 lead going into Tuesday night's contest, Barcelona conjured up their worst performance of the season against a Liverpool side that were sensational from start to finish. The Croatian is seeking to move elsewhere for a new challenge having won everything at Barcelona and Jurgen Klopp is looking to lure him to the Premier League with Liverpool, according to Diario GOL.

After being restricted to a cameo appearance from the bench last week, Roberto Firmino's groin injury has ruled him out of the return, while Mohamed Salah is also unavailable due to a head injury sustained in the weekend win at Newcastle United.

"Before the game we knew that it would be hard but it was still possible of course".

The shooting occurred six months to the day since 11 people were killed at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh . A 60-year-old woman was killed in the attack, with the community's rabbi wounded as well.

Anfield predictably did not look fondly upon its two former sons, with Brazil midfielder Coutinho coming in for heavier stick than Suarez, despite the latter frequently being keen to show his appetite for the dark arts remains.

The Reds produced a remarkable comeback to defeat Barcelona in the semi-finals, winning the second leg 4-0 on Tuesday night to seal a 4-3 aggregate victory. They nearly got their wish on the first, as a corner kick swung in was nearly knocked in by Van Dijk, who had Clement Lenglet hanging all over him, but Ter Stegen alertly made the save. He had earlier scored his league-leading 22nd goal of the season.

Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk has been passed fit to start in their key Champions League encounter against La Liga champions Barcelona.

Amid the injury crisis, the German insists tonight they will treat the Reds faithful to a spectacle, irrespective of whether they progress to the final for consecutive season. "If you have to fine me, fine me", Klopp said as the BT presenter rushed to apologize for the choice language.

He will be hoping to help Barca complete a Champions League semi-final job and book their place in a continental showpiece on June 1.
