Mohamed Salah makes promise to Liverpool fans as Reds blow title defence

Mohamed Salah has promised Liverpool will "fight like champions" as the Reds' limp title defence continued with defeat at Leicester on Saturday.

The Egyptian had fired his side in front at the King Power Stadium but a crazy seven minutes saw them concede three goals and fall to their sixth defeat of the Premier League season.

Manager Jurgen Klopp admitted after the loss that a successful defence of the title was now beyond his side, who sit 13 points adrift of runaway leaders Manchester City.

But Salah posted a defiant message on social media, insisting a recent downturn in form will not define Liverpool's season.

He tweeted: "It’s been a tough period for many reasons. We are champions and we will fight like champions, until the very end.

"We will not allow this season to be defined by the recent results we’ve had. That is my promise to all of you."

Klopp was unable to hide his disappointment after Liverpool were beaten in the East Midlands, with the Reds' campaign threatening to unravel ahead of Tuesday's trip to RB Leipzig in the Champions League.

When asked if he was conceding the title, the German simply replied: "Yes."

He added: "I don't think we can close that gap this year. We have to win football games.

Today was really good in parts. We have to avoid mistakes and misunderstanding. We cannot avoid VAR mistakes but in our hands we have to avoid it."
