BBC pundit Garth Crooks has named four Liverpool players in his Team of the Week, but there's no room for Diogo Jota after he scored twice against Southampton on Saturday.

The Reds comfortably beat Ralph Hasenhuttl's side 4-0 at Anfield thanks to goals from Jota, Thiago and Virgil van Dijk.

Both Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane made the cut, despite not finding the back of the net against the Saints.

Mane came close in the first half after he had an effort ruled out for offside and Salah notched another assist for Jota's second of the afternoon.

"Some of my readers will be a little surprised that Jota is nowhere to be seen among my selections this week," Crooks told the BBC. "That's because I thought his performance, two goals or not, was ordinary in comparison to Mane and especially Salah.

"The Egypt international is a joy to watch at the moment. There isn't a better striker in the word than Salah when he is playing for the team and not merely chasing goals. Against the Saints he was superb."

He also praised Mane, saying the Senegal international was 'at his best' against Southampton.

Van Dijk was included by Crooks alongside Chelsea's Antonio Rudiger and Arsenal's Nuno Tavares.

Thiago also made the cut, despite the ex-Tottenham forward saying he's never been 'totally convinced' by the 30-year-old.

"There is no doubt he can play, but when the game becomes physical or hectic I often feel his lack of pace limits his ability to engage and the game starts to pass him by," Crooks added.

"Liverpool's dominance of Southampton allowed them to control the game - Thiago in particular.

"He's masterful on the ball and has the most velvet touch. This is all very well when your team is in control but Liverpool need the occasional Rottweiler (enforcer) in midfield and that, he is not."
