Mohamed Salah injury scare could prove to be costly for Jurgen Klopp and Liverpool


Liverpool are frantically waiting on news of an injury scare suffered by Mohamed Salah in the win over Leicester on Saturday.
An injury-time James Milner penalty sealed a 2-1 win for Jurgen Klopp’s men to keep up their perfect start to the Premier League season.
The Reds moved eight points clear of champions Manchester City ahead of their class with Wolves on Sunday but the victory may have come at a cost.
Salah was forced off late in the day at Anfield after feeling the effects of a forceful challenge from Foxes midfielder Hamza Choudhury.
The Egypt international tried to continue but signalled to the bench soon after and was replaced by Adam Lallana.
News on the extent of Salah’s injury has not yet been revealed but the hope is that he will fully recover in the coming days.
The upcoming international break also comes at a good time and will give him more time to recover.
Victory over Leicester was Liverpool ’s seventeenth consecutive win in the Premier League and puts them just one win behind

Manchester City’s record of 18.
Klopp and his team now have two weeks to wait until their next game on October 20 when they travel to bitter rivals Manchester United.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men are in the midst of a poor start to their season but would love nothing more than to prevent the Reds from equalling the record.
And their chances will be much improved should Salah not be available for that match at Old Trafford.

Should the European champions navigate their way past the Red Devils they would then get the chance to break the record at home to Tottenham a week later.
Either side of these games Liverpool travel to Genk in the Champions League and welcome Arsenal to Anfield in the Carabao Cup.


Should Salah remain sidelined for those matches too then Klopp will become more anxious of him potentially being ruled out of the blockbuster clash at home to Manchester City on November 10.
With Liverpool and City looking head and shoulders above everyone else in the Premier League once again this season, both games between the pair could prove to be pivotal in the title race once again.

Pep Guardiola’s men inflicted Liverpool’s only defeat last season, beating them 2-1 at the Etihad in January.
And this proved costly with City eventually beating the Reds to the title by just a single point.
