“If we train at things and they happen in the game and score goals it gives you a good feeling because you train all week to score goals like we did,” Wijnaldum told

“With the third, Mo (Salah) was really concentrated and knew if we regained the ball we could create a chance in the counter-attack.

“That’s what we do in training, defending set-pieces and after you defend the set-piece trying to create a chance because they are not well organised in that moment. It’s a really good feeling,” he added.

The Egyptian has now scored three competitive goals since his arrival from AS Roma. His first goal came against Watford and then he scored against Hoffenheim in the Champions League, before finding the net against Arsenal.

Liverpool have tough fixture next game week against Man City at City of Manchester Stadium on Saturday, September 9 as both teams will look to maintain their good start to the season.
