Daniel Sturridge cancelled out Eden Hazard's opener as Liverpool rescued a point, and Klopp said of Salah's display afterwards: "We all have to go through moments like this, but constantly coming close is still world class".
Eden Hazard could quite easily fire Chelsea to the Premier League title again, but it would be a risky strategy to expect the Belgian to sustain his current hot streak for the remainder of the season.
"He has the capacity to make you shout "wow" as I did when he scored the goal that knocked Liverpool out of the Carabao Cup".
With the draw and one point each for Liverpool and Chelsea, Manchester City moved to the top spot in the Premier League table on 19 points, ahead of Liverpool in second on goal difference.
The Egypt global was hauled off after a poor performance against Chelsea, but Klopp has no fears about the Liverpool forward's form. This one was a nice goal but as I said it was just about getting a result.
"Remember just two years ago they were the champions and they've got players in that dressing room who know what it takes - Liverpool haven't got that, but you've got to start somewhere and Liverpool have been impressive".
Salah, victor of the PFA Players' Player of the Year, Fans' Player of the Year and Football Writers' Player of the Year awards last season, has struggled to replicate the performances which meritted those awards.
Maurizio Sarri has made an immediate impact at the Bridge, in the way many new managers tend to do when they take charge of Chelsea.
Liverpool remain unbeaten thanks to Sturridge's late leveller at Stamford Bridge.
Despite boasting a decent enough return of three goals in seven league appearances, Mohamed Salah clearly isn't on top of his game.
He looks off the pace and short on confidence, but it would be foolish to expect his dip to last too long.
