The Reds are hopeful that Mo Salah’s injury is not as serious as first feared, and that the winger will be back in action by the time domestic football returns in a couple of week’s time, according to the Daily Mirror.
Hamza Choudhury’s challenge on Salah could have done a lot more damage, but it appears that the Egyptian has been lucky on this occasion.
Jurgen Klopp slammed the attempted tackle from the England youth international, who has previous when it comes to horror challenges.
During the summer, he was sent off for England at the U21 Euros and earlier this season he inflicted a long-term injury on Newcastle United’s Matt Ritchie in a Carabao Cup tie. Ritchie has not played since.
The Reds face Manchester United next on October 20 and it seems Salah will be involved.
With an eight-point gap to Manchester City, who are second-placed in the Premier League, extending the winning run to 18 league games in a row is the only aim – having Salah available will be a big boost.
