Roma fans arrested on suspicion of attempted murder

Roma fans arrested on suspicion of attempted murder

Roy Keane believes Mohamed Salah must guide Liverpool to silverware if he's to be considered anywhere near Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi's level.

A man in Liverpool is fighting for his life after two AS Roma fans allegedly attacked him before a match between the two teams on Tuesday night. His first goal was simply sublime but the clever chip over the visiting keeper to double Liverpool's advantage was no less magnificent.

Tottenham Hotspur, who they beat in last week's FA Cup semi-final, play Watford on Monday. "The market then went insane with Neymar, Coutinho and Dembélé".

Is Ronaldo in danger of losing his Ballon d'Or crown?

"If you think he's the best in the world, write it or say it", said Klopp.

"I'm really happy for the season and it's my best one to date, but it's not over".

The Ballon d'Or has gone to a victor of the Champions League for the last four years and Liverpool may have to lift a sixth European Cup in Kiev if Salah is to usurp double holder Ronaldo, whose Real side face Bayern Munich in the other semi-final.

Salah's storming run to the top of world football could see him become the first star other than Ronaldo or Messi to pick up the Golden Ball since Brazilian midfielder Kaka, won it all the way back in 2007.

And he demonstrated another Messi-like quality in showing no mercy to Roma.

Liverpool skipper Jordan Henderson felt his side could have scored more goals and felt the penalty awarded against James Milner was "harsh".

The only surprise was Klopp's decision to take Salah out with a 5-0 lead in the 74th minute.

The Reds swept Manchester City aside in the first half of the quarter-final first leg but this time they were on the back foot early on, with Aleksandar Kolarov's thunderbolt flicked on to the bar by Loris Karius.

However, late goals from Edin Dzeko and Diego Perotti gave the visitors some hope ahead of the return fixture in the Italian capital, and De Rossi is refusing to give up.

"Personally I love the pressure.... every player, manager has to work under pressure, that is the nature of the business we are in", Lambert added.

Messi is nearly certain to win a La Liga and Copa del Rey double and Ronaldo could lead Real Madrid to a third consecutive Champions League after another bucketload of goals this season.
