Liverpool’s Salah to miss second leg against Barcelona due to concussion

Suarez opened the scoring for Barcelona before they went on to record as 3-0 victory against Jurgen Klopp's side, with Aldridge suggesting the Uruguay global failed behaved "like a rat" as he attempted to ruffle the feathers of the Liverpool players.

Liverpool is also trying to overcome a 3-0 first-leg deficit without forward Robert Firmino, who has a muscle injury.

Leading 4-1 against Roma, Barca contrived to lose 3-0 at the Stadio Olimpico, exiting the Champions League at the quarter-final stage via the away goals rule. His glee at scoring the opening goal in the 3-0 was obvious and understandable, although he apologised to Liverpool supporters if it was deemed offensive.

"Let's wait and see what happens tomorrow, Jurgen Klopp will still think he can win the double of Champions League and Premier League".

The German went on to recognise the size of the task facing his team: "Two of the world's best strikers are not available and we have to score four goals against Barcelona".

Asked about control of the game, Valverde said: "The only thing we will try to do is attack, not have control".

"If we can do it, wonderful, and if not then fail in the most lovely way, if you want, with a close result".

Barcelona striker Luis Suarez thanked former club Liverpool for raising the standard of his game during a three-and-a-half-year spell at Merseyside, but the Uruguayan is focused on knocking them out of the Champions League semi-finals on Tuesday. "In the last year I was here we got in the Champions League", added the 32-year-old, who revealed canteen staff at Liverpool's Melwood training ground had given him presents for his three children. "The result is good, I have no doubt about that, but the tie is still open".

"When we came in he was sitting in the dressing room watching the game on television".

One of those who dropped to the bench in Galicia was Philippe Coutinho, a player who could find himself being targeted by both sets of fans if he starts on Tuesday.

"It is a long season and there is at least a little chance to make it even longer".
