Salah to Face Late Fitness Test Ahead of Liverpool Game

Jurgen Klopp has revealed that he will make a late decision on Mohamed Salah's fitness ahead of a clash with Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park on Saturday afternoon.

Salah was forced to miss Egypt's Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers against Kenya and Comoros over the last week, due to an ankle injury he has been struggling with in recent weeks.

The 27-year-old has played a key role in Liverpool's rise to the Premier League summit this season, contributing six goals and three assists in 11 appearances to pick up from where he left off last term.

Klopp's side will be aiming to extend their advantage when they travel to Palace this weekend, but the Liverpool boss is not yet certain whether Salah will be able to take part.

“Yesterday he trained. He trained the whole time since he was here, but only the things we wanted him to do," Klopp told a press conference on Friday.

“Today is another important session to see how it looks and we can make the decision. It’s not that it got worse but it’s still kind of there, that’s the problem. We have to be sensible with things like this.

“But I didn’t make the decision. If I would have made a decision, I probably wouldn’t have told you now, but it’s true I have to see the session today.” Follow us on Twitter and on Facebook
