Liverpool's Mohamed Salah to miss Barcelona semi-final

Liverpool's Mohamed Salah to miss Barcelona semi-final

"It is concussion and that means he [Salah] is not allowed to play".

However, if Liverpool are to spring an unlikely comeback, it will be without two of their major goal threats as Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino miss out through injury.

Salah "feels OK but it's not good enough from a medical point of view", Klopp said at a news conference. A brilliant Mohamed Salah goal gave Liverpool a 2-1 lead in the first half, but Newcastle's Solomon Rondon equalized the game in the 54th minute off a corner. Now we have to play better as we'll face a really hard atmosphere. Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez - Barca's goalscorers in last Wednesday's 3-0 first-leg win at Camp Nou - were among those rested ahead of the trip to Anfield.

Barcelona head coach Ernesto Valverde warned his side to learn from their experience in losing to Roma but does not expect a repeat when his side face Liverpool in the Champions League semi-finals.

Even without Salah and Firmino, Liverpool are a superior opponent to Roma and have scored three or more goals on 19 occasions already this season - including away at Newcastle United on Saturday night, where a late victor from former Wolfsburg loanee Divock Origi kept the Reds in the Premier League title race.

Klopp said the club would continue to monitor Salah but would not say if he would be in contention for Sunday's final Premier League match of the season against Wolves, a match the Anfield club must win if they are to pip Manchester City to the title. "We're missing two of the best strikers in the world and we need to score four goals".

"We had a three-goal advantage previous year as well and we still got knocked out", he said.

"When we came in, he was sitting in the dressing room and watching the game or had watched the game".

Klopp hoped the season would not end in double disappointment: "Together with our supporters this was a long season and there's a little chance to make it even longer".

"I think there will be more applause than whistles".

"The situation is not what you want to have".
