Liverpool take control of Inter Milan draw two goals behind as Mohamed Salah strikes again and Jurgen Klopp’s substitutions turn Champions League knockout clash

Liverpool scored twice in the last 15 minutes against Inter Milan to take control of their Champions League Round of 16 fixture with a 2-0 first leg victory.

An equal match for 75 minutes turned into a mountain to climb for Inter as Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah struck in the final eight minutes.

Liverpool are now big favorites to qualify for the quarter-finals

Firmino was one of four substitutions made by Jurgen Klopp before the 60th minute as the Reds boss tried to ease the relentless pressure from Inter.

The Brazilian netted a brilliant header from an Andy Robertson corner, before Salah netted his 10th goal in eight away Champions League appearances via a lucky deflection into the box.

Speaking on commentary for talkSPORT, former Premier League striker Dean Ashton said: “They haven’t been at their best, they’ve struggled to get into any rhythm before these changes in Klopp.

“Fair play and a pat on the bat to Klopp. He acknowledged they were under pressure, he made a triple substitution and they took the game into their own hands.
