Jurgen Klopp drops Mo Salah hint ahead of Man City v Liverpool FC
Jurgen Klopp delivers the latest injury update about Mohamed Salah ahead of Liverpool FC's trip to Man City
Jurgen Klopp has revealed that he is hopeful that Mohamed Salah will be fit for Liverpool FC’s showdown with Manchester City in the Champions League on Tuesday night.
The Egypt international was left out of the Liverpool FC squad for their goalless draw with Everton at Goodison Park on Saturday afternoon after he picked up an injury during the 3-0 win over Manchester City last week.
Salah scored the first goal and set up the third for the Reds in their dominant Champions League win over Pep Guardiola’s men at Anfield last week.
However, he was forced off in the second half after picking up an injury and has been undergoing his recovery at Melwood in recent days.
It remains to be seen whether Salah will be fit enough to start for Liverpool FC when they travel to Manchester City for the return leg of their quarter-final tie on Tuesday night.
However, Klopp seems to feel confident that the 25-year-old does have a chance of being fit for the game.
Speaking at his post-match news conference on Saturday, Klopp said: “I don’t get a ticker every five minutes of how he feels so I don’t know!
“That’s what everybody thinks [that he’ll be available at Etihad Stadium] but in the end we will see.”
Liverpool FC head into their clash with Manchester City knowing that scoring one away goal would leave the Citizens having to net five times to progress to the semi-finals.
