Mohamed Salah Injury Update: The Egyptian could face Manchester United in Old Trafford after the international break.
Mohamed Salah limped off following a tackle from Hamza Chowdury during Liverpool’s 2-1 victory over Leicester City on Saturday.
The Egyptian was clutching his leg owing down that challenge and wasn’t able to continue for rest of the game. After the game, Jurgen Klopp confirmed that he needs to be assessed by the medical team in order to figure out the length of absence. The Liverpool boss was also infuriated with that type of challenge and warned it ‘dangerous as hell’.
Fortunately for Liverpool, Mohamed Salah has not suffered a serious injury and could be available for the away trip to Manchester United after the international break, according to the Goal. The output from the scan showed just twisted ankle, and no fracture or ligament damage.
The Egyptian will be assessed at Melwood Training Ground over this week and a call would be taken on his participation against the Red Devils at Old Trafford on October 20. He could still feature against the struggling Manchester United, who are hoping for a turnaround in the near future after an early slump.
This will come as a huge piece of news for Liverpool, who have a eight-point lead over Manchester City at the early stages of the season. They will be hoping to keep this lead intact for a long time as they aspire to end their long title drought.
Mohamed Salah will not be travelling with his national team as the Egyptian FA have handed him rest time.
Alongside the back-to-back golden boot winner, Naby Keita, whose move has been hindered with injuries until this moment, will be working on his fitness intensively. The Guinean featured against MK Dons in the League Cup and is bound to get more game time after the international break.
Joel Matip is anticipated to recover after suffering a small issue against Sheffield United last week. Jurgen Klopp will have full squad to work, with Alisson Becker and Xherdan Shaqiri set to return from calf injuries.
