Liverpool dazzle but give Roma small chance in CL semifinal second leg

Roberto Firmino and Mo Salah scored two goals apiece at Anfield

However, largely against the run of play it was Liverpool who took the lead through a brilliant effort from Mo Salah.

Salah has earmarked himself as a candidate for the Ballon d'Or award having rattled the back of the net 43 times in 46 appearances this season and many are comparing him to Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

"We have to work again in Rome - that is no problem. Conceding two goals is not what we want but we can't change it, that's football", Klopp said. "We're really happy to be playing with him rather than against him".

Salah was warmly greeted by his former teammates as he prepared to face Roma for the first time since his £39 million move to Liverpool last summer.

"I would be much more happy if we had won 5-0 or 5-1 but 5-2 is still a fantastic result".

"We believe the victim was in Liverpool with his brother for the Liverpool v Roma semi-final and was assaulted during an altercation between Roma and Liverpool fans near to the Albert pub at about 7:35 pm", detective inspector Paul Speight said.

Stocks close mixed; Dow industrials end losing streak
Economic data released Tuesday morning included a reading on home sales, which surged to a near four-year high. The Kospi in South Korea lost 0.4 percent and Hong Kong's Hang Seng added 1.4 percent.

Salah and Firmino both scored twice for the Reds either side of a Mane strike as Liverpool found themselves 5-0 up after 69 minutes.

Couple this with a fragile Liverpool defence and the obvious air of disappointment from fans and player's after what could have been, and Roma will feel they are in with a chance of reaching the final in Kiev still.

Chief Superintendent Dave Charnock said: "The vast majority of the 52,500 fans attending the game were well-behaved and went to watch a good game of football".

Salah will return to the Stadio Olimpico next Wednesday with the hope that Roma can't pull off a repeat of their Champions League quarter-final heroics against Barcelona. Where I get frustrated with the captain is when we don't see a dominant showing like Tuesday against Swansea or West Brom.

The Ballon d'Or has gone to a victor of the Champions League for the last four years. We can't complain about scoring five goals in a Champions League semi-final, so I'm looking forward to the game next week and we'll be looking to finish the tie off'.

"We go there with a three-goal advantage but it will be hard given what they did against Barcelona in the last round. We know what we need to do".
