Injuries to fellow midfielders Jordan Henderson and Naby Keita saw Fabinho given his opportunity from the start under the Anfield lights against Red Star, with Klopp challenging him to "close the gap" on his team-mates - and he certainly did that. "The present for his birthday was not that he was in the lineup, it was that we played his favourite system with a double-six".
He cushioned a lovely ball through to Salah, who lashed a rising shot on his right foot past goalkeeper Borjan for his second goal in two games. He was very aggressive and everything was there.
Not many players have had a better debut season for a club than Mo Salah.
After the break, Salah made it a half-century worth of goals for Liverpool when he buried a penalty shot in the 51st minute after Sadio Mane drew the foul off Red Star captain Filip Stojkovic.

It was called "the ship of dreams", that ended in a full nightmare-by-iceberg, and nobody wants that to happen again. The new ship will include 2,400 passengers and 900 crew members, which is about the same as the original.
Since the start of last season, no player has been directly involved in more Champions League goals than Liverpool's Roberto Firmino (18 - 11 goals, 7 assists; level with Juventus' Cristiano Ronaldo).
And Klopp's tolerant nature does not just apply to new signings.
He went on: "To be honest, the first job we have to do is win football games and we have played really good stuff already this season".
"Our focus is always on what we can do and what we can achieve, and we relish this challenge", he said in Liverpool's matchday programme.
The Egyptian ended a four-game goal drought with the victor at Huddersfield on Saturday and struck twice to open his Champions League account for the season after Roberto Firmino had opened the scoring.
Giants trade cornerback Eli Apple to New Orleans Saints
In five games this season, Apple recorded 23 tackles (20 solo), one forced fumble, one fumble recovery and five passes defensed. He was a college teammate of three current Saints: safety Vonn Bell, cornerback Marshon Lattimore and receiver Michael Thomas .
Albert Stubbins, who starred for Liverpool in the post-war period and helped the Reds to the 1946-47 First Division title, was the previously record holder, reaching the mark in 77 games in the late 1940s.
'He was especially decisive around the first goal, I think he won the ball back in the counter-press situation, got it back, played then this fantastic channel ball to Robbo.
Red Star are bottom of the section but held Napoli 0-0 in their opener.
After all, he's had enough time to prepare for it.
