Jurgen Klopp's men were thrashed 5-0 by Manchester City on Saturday, after Sadio Mane's straight red card in the first half reduced them to 10 men, and Salah is determined to bounce back in their next clash.

Catalan news outlets Sport and Mundo Deportivo showed no mercy in their slamming of the four-time Champions League winners. We could have said afterwards it was not a goalkeeper game but we didn't know that before. I think he did. While suggestions of revenge might be a touch short sighted, Klopp isn't underestimating Sevilla in the least knowing full well that they'll be on Merseyside to looking to get their own Champions League campaign off to a good start.

"I have no doubt about Alexis's mind and mentality", said Wenger on Thursday.
