Jurgen Klopp has suggested Liverpool will need to wait for the results of a diagnosis in regards to Mo Salah’s groin injury.
Our Egyptian phenomenon scored the opener and assisted our third against Manchester City last night, but sadly left the pitch after 53 minutes – having told the boss he could ‘feel something’.
After the game, Salah was seen smiling and Klopp said the 25-year-old had told him ‘he’s fine,’ but the boss was keen not to confirm as much before it’s known for sure.
“I don’t know in the moment,” Klopp told the post-match press-conference, cited by the official website.
“He came to the sideline and said he feels sometimes something; for me, that was enough for me to not even ask the Doc how he was, we immediately took him off the pitch.
“After the game I asked him and he said, ‘I will be good, it will be fine’. But now we have to wait for the real diagnosis, not Mo’s self-diagnosis.
“We will see, I don’t know at the moment.”
We can’t imagine Salah will play against Everton at the weekend, which is completely fine with us.
In fact, we’d be happy for Klopp to choose a bunch of U23s at Goodison, considering the ten point gap between ourselves and fifth placed Chelsea.
We don’t want to lose at Everton, but we have bigger fish to fry. A good result at the Etihad and we’re in the Champions League semi-finals.
From there, anything can happen.
