Liverpool reportedly have ‘major concerns’ after Mohamed Salah is told to have aggravated his troublesome ankle injury versus Man City.
The 27-year-old netted in his side’s crucial 3-1 win at Anfield on Sunday over their PL title rivals, a result that lifts them eight points clear at the top of the list.
Though, it may have come at a price as ESPN report that the Merseyside giants have severe concerns over Salah’s ankle which had been causing him problems before the weekend.
Having taken another knock on it, the report goes on to add that the PL leaders required Salah to remain behind over the international break for further scans and treatment if needed, but he has instead travelled to meet up with the Egypt line-up and will do an assessment with their medical staff.
Time will tell what their tests show, and consequently if he does get the green light to feature for them over the international break, whether or not he can return to Melwood in a fortnight without having to face a time on the sidelines if the injury worsens.
Such is the quality and depth that Liverpool boss has at his disposal in this the Merseyside reds squad, they’ll be confident that they can cope with injuries and continue to win matches in pursuit of their objectives this campaign.
Though with Salah scored nine goals and five assists in 17 outings so far this campaign, they’ll also know the importance that the forward holds for Jurgen Klopp, and so they’ll be expecting that the ankle doesn’t continue to bother him and doesn’t worsen in the weeks and months ahead.
He may not be allowed the time to rest though as with the Reds continuing to compete on various fronts, they face a gruelling and incredibly hard fixture schedule between now and the end of 2019.
