Liverpool star Mohamed Salah is a major doubt for Crystal Palace game
The Liverpool Echo reports that Mohamed Salah is a major doubt for the Crystal Palace game after the international break.
Salah hurt his ankle after Fernandinho made a tackle late in the clash and needed some treatment.
The Egyptian picked up the initial injury when he was tackled from behind by Leicester’s Hamza Choudhury.
Salah missed some games for Liverpool due to the problem and didn’t finish the 90 minutes in the 2-1 win over Aston Villa. The forward tried to play on against City after the Fernandinho challenge but had to be subbed off.
Salah to miss Egypt games
The Liverpool star left for the international break and underwent a scan with the Egypt team (h/t Liverpool Echo).
The African giants have decided not to field Salah against Kenya and Comoros (h/t Liverpool Echo).
It will be interesting to see if Salah is fit for the clash against Palace as the Eagles are a tough team to face.
Liverpool host Napoli at Anfield with Champions League qualification a possibility with the right result. The Reds need to keep all their players fit for a packed schedule after this break.
The Club World Cup will add games in the coming weeks, and not having Salah for a long time will be a big blow.
