Latest Updates on Mohamed Salah’s Injury

Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp, told reporters on Friday he won’t risk Mohamed Salah against Everton unless he is “100 per cent fit” for the Merseyside derby, yet he will give him “every chance” to be involved in today’s match if his groin injury is completely healed.

Salah was substituted in the 52nd minute of Liverpool’s 3-0 win over Manchester City in the Champions League with a suspected groin injury after scoring his 38th goal of the season.

The 25-year-old has spent time in a hyperbaric oxygen chamber in an effort to return to full fitness.

“Of course you can imagine we try everything to make him available,” Klopp said. “Still there are 23 hours to go so let’s see what happens. But I cannot make Mo available because it is the derby. I would never do that, it is not possible. You cannot push a player through a game.

Salah is not expected to feature, but the Liverpool Echo report medics at the club are confident he could be fit in time for the reverse Champions League tie with Manchester City on Tuesday.

Liverpool Echo‘s James Pearce shared on Twitter that Salah wasn’t completely ruled out:
