Philippe Coutinho has heaped praise on Liverpool team-mate Mohamed Salah ahead of the Egyptian's reunion with Chelsea on Saturday.
Salah joined Liverpool from Roma for £34.3m in June, and has got off to a flying start at Anfield, scoring 14 goals in just 19 appearances.
However, the 25-year-old previously had an underwhelming spell at Chelsea, playing just 10 matches for the Blues before leaving for Italy.
Unsurprisingly, midfielder Coutinho is enjoying life playing alongside Salah. He said: "He's a great player.
"Everyone - us and the fans - have been really impressed with the way he's settled in here, the way he's adapted to the team.
"He's a very quick player and he's always trying to move so that he can get into empty space and that makes it easier for whoever has the ball.
"Everything is fully deserved, he's a great bloke, he always trains hard and he's there when we need him.
"I hope to be able to make the best of my chance to play with him and to be able to help the team."
