The England worldwide striker did not start the match, but the 29-year-old came on as a substitute in the 86th minute.
Chelsea defeated Liverpool 2-1 in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday but the former Arsenal star believes it would be the reverse this time.
The forward has just three goals in nine appearances so far this campaign, and he was out of sorts once more on his return to Stamford Bridge.
The English striker has also stated that he respects Chelsea, having been on the books of the London club from 2009 until 2013.
"I think he's a top, top player".
Salah scored 32 Premier League goals last season but he is yet to replicate the same form that crowned him PFA Player of the Year. It's good to get the result. "A good team creates chances, as long as we create chances, we are always closer to scoring", he said.
"We are not looking at this as the deciding factor of the season".
That miss looked like proving costly for Liverpool, but Sturridge had other ideas.
"As for Man City, I watched them against Lyon and you think something might be wrong and then they go and put on a show against Cardiff".
"We had chances, we played fantastic football".
And those comparisons with Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi are now beginning to look a touch outlandish, with the game's two greatest modern players so far ahead of the rest due to their ability to score at such incredible rates year after year.
Klopp, who replaced the Egyptian with Xherdan Shaqiri just before the midway point of the second half, acknowledged that Salah had fallen below his usual standards and said he could not understand some of the player's decision-making in risky areas of the pitch.
