LIVERPOOL star Mohamed Salah has issued a stark warning ahead of his side's match against Albion.

The Egyptian failed to score in Liverpool’s 1-0 defeat to Inter Milan on Tuesday night.

The 29-year-old did however hit the post twice in the match, which saw Liverpool progress to the quarter-finals of the Champions League on aggregate.

Coming off the back of four consecutive defeats, Brighton and Hove Albion face Liverpool on Saturday, March 12.  

Salah, who leads the Premier League goal tally this season with 19, says he hopes to bounce back immediately.

Speaking after the game to BT Sport, Salah said: "I hit the post a couple of times, maybe next game I’ll score three.

“But the most important thing is that the team performed and we’re through into the next round.

“It’s always important to win a game, but like tonight we hit the post twice, had a lot of chances, but that can happen in football and the good thing is that we qualified.

“They’re a tough team, they were very good in the first leg too. We were able to hold the ball up a bit more in the second half and were helped by the red card but we’re through to the next round so it’s all good.

“We need to start better from the beginning, we need to push a little bit more, maybe in the back of our mind we felt we were a little bit overconfident, but it’s a good game for us to take and learn from.”

Albion have dropped to 13th in the league table after a strong start to the campaign.

After Liverpool, Graham Potter’s side will then face Tottenham Hotspur.
