No, nothing serious.”Klopp was full of praise for his players after they recovered from conceding a first-minute goal to Harry Kane, moving joint third alongside Martin Chivers on the club’s all-time list after his 178th goal for the club.After goalkeeper Paulo Gazzaniga had kept Liverpool at bay with a string of saves in the first half, Reds captain Jordan Henderson equalised with his first Anfield goal since December 2015 before Salah struck from the spot after Sadio Mane was fouled by Serge Aurier.Liverpool have won six and drawn three of the last 10 league matches at home when they have conceded the first goal, while the win extended their unbeaten league record at Anfield to 45 matches dating back to April 2017.
