Jurgen Klopp says Mo Salah hasn’t suffered a serious injury despite the Liverpool FC forward’s substitution in Sunday’s 2-1 win over Tottenham Hotspur.

Salah returned to the Liverpool FC starting XI for the visit of Spurs following the Egypt international’s absence from their 1-1 draw with Manchester United at Old Trafford last weekend.

The former Chelsea FC winger missed the stalemate with the Red Devils due to an ankle injury that he suffered during Liverpool FC’s 2-1 victory over Leicester City.

The 27-year-old looked sharp as Salah scored Liverpool FC’s winner from the spot after Tottenham defender Serge Aurier fouled Sadio Mane in the penalty area.

However, Salah was replaced by Joe Gomez with five minutes to go to raise questions about the former PFA player of the year’s fitness following his ankle problem.

Speaking at his post-match news conference following Liverpool FC’s narrow 2-1 win against Spurs at Anfield on Sunday evening, Klopp gave an update on Salah’s ankle problem.

Asked whether the injury was serious by a member of the British media, Klopp replied: “No.

“It’s the ankle, the ankle he has struggled with since the Leicester game.

“It’s good, but the longer the game goes the muscles get a bit tired, stuff like this, [and] if you get a knock on it then you feel it more and it makes no sense to try to push it through because we had other players, still options to change, and that’s what we did.

“No, nothing serious.”

Salah will be hoping to be 100 per cent for Liverpool FC’s clash against promoted side Aston Villa at Villa Park next weekend.

Liverpool FC will host defending Premier League champions Manchester City in their next home clash in the top flight on 10 November.
