Mohamed Salah avoided speaking to the media after Liverpool's 2-2 draw against West Ham. However, the Egyptian striker said he would be on "fire" if he spoke after arguing with Jurgen Klopp late in the game before replacing Luis Diaz.

West Ham effectively snuffed out Liverpool's slim Premier League title hopes on Saturday, coming back to draw 2-2 at the London Stadium.
Mohamed Salah, who was thrown by Jurgen Klopp after West Ham's equaliser in a desperate search for a winner, appeared to direct angry words at his manager before he was introduced.
Such was the tension between the two that the Egyptian forward refused to speak to the media after Saturday's draw. "There’s gonna be a fire today if I speak," Salah told reporters.
Salah and Klopp disagreed on one aspect of the game against West Ham. The No.11 was unhappy with the German manager's explanations and sparks flew between the pair in the dugout area. Darwin Nunez had to mediate to pull his teammate away.
"We spoke about it in the dressing room and that is done for me. That was my impression," said the current Liverpool coach when asked about the confrontation with his player.
