Liverpool’s top goalscorer Mohamed Salah is winning his race to be fit for Sunday’s huge clash with Manchester City.
After missing the Reds’ last two games, 2-1 wins over Burnley and Everton, Salah could be fit to face the league leaders when Pep Guardiola’s side visit Anfield on Sunday afternoon.
The groin injury which has sidelined him since Liverpool’s 2-1 win over Leicester City has healed well with Salah responding to treatment, according to Neil Jones of the Liverpool Echo.
The Egyptian will return to training at Melwood tomorrow along with his teammates after traveling to Dubai for a short break after a congested festive fixture list.
Salah will be considered by Klopp to play this weekend and is a huge boost for the Reds with Philippe Coutinho obviously unavailable after leaving to join Barcelona for £146 million.
Liverpool’s no.11 has scored 24 goals and provided 6 assists this season and will be even more important for the Reds now that Coutinho is gone.
Of course, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino will combine with Salah up front to form what is still a very formidable front line and more than enough to score against Manchester City.
Alberto Moreno is also facing a possible return to training this week after missing Liverpool’s last nine games in all competitions.
Andy Robertson has replaced the Spaniard in the starting XI and has done very well so he will face an uphill battle to get back in the side once he returns to full fitness.
Neil Jones also mentions that there aren’t any developments on the racial allegations involving Roberto Firmino and Mason Holgate.
