Mohamed Salah is a doubt for Liverpool’s match at Burnley today after he picked up an unspecified injury playing against Leicester.
The Egyptian player scored both of Liverpool’s goals as they came from behind to beat Leicester City 2 – 1 at Anfield. However, at 83 minutes he limped off the pitch and was replaced by Gini Wijnaldum.
Boss Jurgen Klopp said, “I don’t know exactly [what the problem is]. He was limping and that’s never a good sign. We will have to see what the problem is and what he can do for the next game.”
Salah’s two goals took his tally to 23 for the season, continuing his excellent form that he has been enjoying since joining the team from Roma in the summer.
Klopp added, “He’s still a young player. He can improve. He’s so important for us but he knows and I know he couldn’t score without the other boys playing fantastic passes. I think he can keep the standard [for the rest of the season], but it’s normal that they can keep the standard in the moment, and it’s not only a run. The boys show their quality.”
Saturday’s result means that Liverpool have now gone unbeaten for 15 games in all competitions and guaranteed them a top four spot in the league table as they enter 2018.
Klopp also said that he was particularly pleased with the way the team responded to Leicester’s early goal. He said that the players gave “the best reaction” possible to the situation and they went on to play “brilliant football” and that it was “100 percent one of the best [games] we’ve played so far.”
The team’s new £75 million signing, Virgil van Dijk, watched the game.
