Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp concerned by Mohamed Salah injury

Jurgen Klopp admitted that Mohamed Salah’s injury is not “100 percent right” after the Premier League’s leading scorer limped off in Liverpool’s 2-0 win at Brighton & Hove Albion.

Salah scored his 20th league goal of the season from the penalty spot before being withdrawn with a suspected leg injury in the 65th minute.

Although Klopp revealed that Salah is optimistic about the injury, Klopp is still concerned about the potential absence of his key man – especially Wednesday’s trip to Arsenal.

“He thinks it is not serious but when Mohamed Salah is sitting you can see it is not 100 percent right,” Klopp told BT Sport.

“He thinks it’s from when he hit the ball and he got blocked and his foot got stretched.

“He got blocked before the penalty. He stretched his foot slightly. He felt it was a little bit higher on the knee. He is not concerned. Not sure what it is exactly. He thinks it will be fine. He felt something and you could see he couldn’t walk properly.”

Although a time frame is yet to be established on the injury, Klopp will not want to be without Salah, with their FA Cup quarter-final against Nottingham Forest following their visit to the Emirates.
