'Human beings have a limit' - why stars like Kane, Salah, Hazard need a rest

ESPN FC's Alexis Nunes and Steve Nicol square off in predicting every fixture in the sixth week of Premier League action.
Jurgen Klopp says Mohamed Salah just needs time to get back to his goal-scoring form of last season.
Tottenham's Mauricio Pochettino is not concerned by Harry Kane's three game goal draught but admits his side struggle to find goals when the striker doesn't score.

It feels slightly odd discussing the "out of form" Harry Kane. A couple of weeks ago, he showed off the World Cup Golden Boot at Wembley as just the second English player to win that trophy after Gary Lineker, who claimed it in 1986. He's scored twice in five league games this season: not mind-blowing, but not cause for panic either. One of those goals was at Old Trafford.

But watching him this season shows that something isn't right. The problem seems clear but the cause slightly less so. It...

Mohamed Salah's sensational 2017-18 has set expectations impossibly high

Jurgen Klopp says Mohamed Salah just needs time to get back to his goal-scoring form of last season.

Mohamed Salah's performances in the opening six games of the season have been somewhat underwhelming, but only when viewed in the prism of what he did last season.

He's played six games, scored two goals and has a couple of assists. He also won a penalty and an opponent was sent off for bringing him down when clean through. He's had numerous others chances that he hasn't taken and also had a goal disallowed. He's not breaking any records, but he is making an impact.

It's not actually that different...

Jurgen Klopp laughs off Mohamed Salah talk after slow start: 'Wow that's a crisis'

Jurgen Klopp says Mohamed Salah just needs time to get back to his goal-scoring form of last season.
ESPN FC chronicles Liverpool's Champions League matchweek against PSG, from the buildup around the city to the celebrations following Firmino's winner.
Liverpool are creating a new training complex which will see both the first and the youth teams training at the same complex in the club's history.

LIVERPOOL -- Jurgen Klopp said he is not worried about Mohamed Salah's start to the campaign and believes the forward is being harshly compared to last season's standards.

Salah broke the Premier League record for most goals scored in a 38-game season in 2017-18 and has started the follow-up campaign with two goals in six appearances.

He began last season, his first at Liverpool following a move from Roma, with three goals in six outings and then went on to score 44 times in all competitions.

Tottenham respected Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino too much - Mauricio Pochettino

Stewart Robson and Steve Nicol believe there's more to Spurs' losing run than fatigue, suggesting Mauricio Pochettino is to blame for his frequent changes to the lineup.
Craig Burley believes Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino should practice the team-continuity that is helping Liverpool succeed this season.
Paul Mariner breaks down how Spurs threw away their comfortable 1-0 lead at Inter to lose their opening Champions League match, at the San Siro.

Mauricio Pochettino said he is frustrated by different aspects of Tottenham's passing in their last two defeats and suggested his defenders were intimidated by Liverpool's forwards last Saturday.

Spurs have given the ball away in dangerous areas against both Jurgen Klopp's Reds in the Premier League and Inter Milan in the Champions League in the last week, losing 2-1 both times.

But Pochettino has identified contrasting deficiencies and feels it would be entirely wrong to apply the same analysis...

James Milner shines again, Mohamed Salah's struggles continue as Liverpool edge PSG

ESPN FC chronicles Liverpool's Champions League matchweek against PSG, from the buildup around the city to the celebrations following Firmino's winner.
The guys respond to your tweets about Liverpool's win over PSG, including Salah's struggles, assigning blame for PSG and comparing the two No. 9s.

Liverpool outplayed PSG from start to finish but needed a stoppage-time winner from substitute Roberto Firmino to spare their blushes after they somehow blew a 2-0 lead. With the French side their most likely rivals to top the group, Firmino's last-gasp strike could prove crucial.

Positives

The overall performance suggests that the Merseysiders are well-equipped to make their mark on Europe again this year. PSG are one of the top sides in the competition but they were distinctly second-best throughout.

Negatives

Not...

Mohamed Salah on Liverpool's chances: I am sure we can win the Champions League

ESPN FC's Alejandro Moreno looks at the importance of Liverpool's clash with PSG and thinks Tottenham will have their hands full with Inter Milan.
Liverpool's Jordan Henderson believes PSG have too many 'special' players to focus on stopping but feels it can be another great European night at Anfield.
Liverpool's Jurgen Klopp dismissed reports that Liverpool were favourites to beat PSG and admits he understands Neymar's frustraitions in dealing with fouls.

Mohamed Salah has said that he believes Liverpool are capable of winning both the Premier League and Champions League this season.

Liverpool have opened their league season with five wins for the first time since 1990-91 and begin their European campaign on Tuesday night when Paris Saint-Germain arrive at Anfield.

Salah was part of the Liverpool side that were beaten by Real Madrid in last season's Champions League final and is confident Jurgen Klopp's team can adequately compete on multiple fronts...
