Liverpool handed major injury boost as Salah returns to training

Liverpool’s Premier League clash with in-form Arsenal today could be crucial in the Reds’ search for their second Premier League title, after Manchester City drew with Crystal Palace on Monday night.

Star man Mohamed Salah was withdrawn from proceedings against Brighton on Saturday just four minutes after scoring the team’s second goal, on the way to securing a 2-0 victory away from home.

The injury was trivial and Klopp said he was “not concerned” after the game, and during the pre-match conference for today’s match, he confirmed that Salah is back in training already.

The news was first revealed by Liverpool journalist Paul Joyce who took to Twitter yesterday to relay: “Jurgen Klopp says Mo Salah should be fit for the Arsenal game. ‘He’s ready to train.'”

In full, the German manager said: “Looks like [it]. Mo is a tough cookie and he was only a little bit cut, we were quite lucky with it.

Will Salah start for Liverpool tonight?

Yes, he will be fit enough!

Yes, he will be fit enough!

No, he shouldn't be risked!

No, he shouldn't be risked!

“It was swollen, painful, yesterday a little less swollen, less painful.

“Now I got the message before the press conference that Mo is ready to train and we will see how that looks.”

Despite speculation surrounding his contract which at the moment is due to run-out at the end of next season, Salah has maintained his excellent form throughout this season, having scored 20 Premier League goals in 26 appearances, as well as setting up a further ten.

Not only does his total for the season work out at an incredible one goal contribution every 74.3 minutes, it makes him the top scorer in the English top-flight, as well as second highest assister – second only to teammate Trent Alexander-Arnold.

Can you beat this impossible Liverpool quiz?! Starting off easy...

Among wingers and attacking midfielders in Europe’s top five leagues and continental competitions, he’s got the highest goals per 90 (0.79), highest touches in the attacking penalty area per 90 (10.58), as well as the highest progressive passes received per 90 (11.72) – proving that he is the best wide-man in the world currently at getting into goalscoring or goal-creating positions.

He is a vital player for Liverpool, and even if they fail to turn up against Arsenal today, with the Egyptian 29-year-old on the pitch, they can still score enough to win the game due to his quality alone.

Meanwhile, James Milner and Konstantinos Tsimikas have both been ruled out due to illness.
