Liverpool are not just about Mohamed Salah, says Swansea boss

Swansea boss Carlos Carvalhal will not complain if Liverpool rest Mohamed Salah against their relegation rivals Stoke on Saturday.

Salah this week took his goal tally for the campaign to 43 with a brace in Liverpool’s 5-2 win against Roma in the first leg of their Champions League semi-final.

The Egyptian forward could be rested ahead of Wednesday’s second leg when Jurgen Klopp’s side entertain Stoke at Anfield.

But Carvalhal, whose side are four points clear of Stoke, said: “Liverpool is not just about Salah, they can win without this player.

“He is fantastic, the player of the season, but they do not depend on one player.

“It is about their dynamic and shape and they are very positive in this moment.

“Even if they make changes, they will have most of their same side.

“It is like what we did in the cup and we won games, and they have ambitions in the competition for second spot.”

Swansea are one place above the relegation zone and hold a four-point advantage over Southampton and Stoke, the latter having played a game more.
