It’s looking like Mo Salah will be fit and ready to face Manchester City on Tuesday, writes James Pearce in the Echo.
Fans have been patiently waiting for a proper update after the Egyptian left the field early on Wednesday and Jurgen Klopp said we’d only know the extent of the problem after tests.

“The Reds’ 38-goal hero was taken off as a precaution during Wednesday night’s 3-0 win over City and is unlikely to feature against Everton at Goodison on Saturday.
“Salah felt some discomfort in his groin but medical staff believe it’s only minor and he could be back for Tuesday’s crunch clash at the Etihad.”
When Salah departed at Anfield our ability to stretch City disappeared, so it’s vital that we have him from the start, especially as there’ll be plenty of chances to counter.
The hosts will need at least three goals, but if we score once, they’ll require five.
With Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino capable of breaking at will, Liverpool will get opportunities to put the game to bed.
The key for us though is another very solid defensive performance. We put one in against City in the second 45 at Anfield, but we’ll need to do the same again – away from home – for twice that length of time.
As of now, the semi-final is not in touching distance.
