Klopp dismisses any injury concern for Salah

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has said that Mohamed Salah has suffered a minor knock on his ankle but he should recover in a very short space of time.

The Egypt international sustained the minor problem during the closing stages of the league clash against Tottenham Hotspur, where the Reds registered a 2-1 triumph.

Speaking after the game,  Klopp said that Salah has not entirely recovered from the ankle injury picked up against Leicester City earlier this month but he should be fine for the forthcoming round of matches.

"Mo is the same ankle [he injured earlier this month], it just gets sore the longer the game goes on. It’s not a massive issue, that will disappear one day, but it’s still a bit there at the moment," he told Sky Sports.

Liverpool are presently six points ahead of Manchester City at the top of their league standings. In midweek, they are scheduled to entertain Arsenal in the fourth round of the League Cup.

Jurgen Klopp played a side with youth and experience in the previous round of the competition and he may go with the same trend irrespective of the selection made by the Gunners.
