The Egypt international was once again in superb form for the Reds against the Citizens and he fired the home side into the lead in the 12th minute of the Champions League quarter-final clash first leg on Merseyside.
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain made it 2-0 to the hosts with a superb long-range effort, before Salah turned provider for Sadio Mane, who headed home the Egyptian’s cross.
Salah limped off seven minutes after half-time but Klopp has now revealed that the 25-year-old was feeling optimistic about his diagnosis after the game.
Speaking at his post-match news conference, Klopp said: “I don’t know in the moment.
“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.”
Liverpool FC now turn their attentions back towards Premier League affairs and their crunch clash against Everton at Goodison Park on Saturday lunchtime.
The Reds are currently in third place in the Premier League table as they look to try and finish in the top four for the second season running under Klopp.
Salah has been in sensational form for the Reds so far this season, scoring 29 goals in 31 Premier League games for Klopp’s men.
