How Time 100 gala evening could see Liverpool's Salah benched

Mohamed Salah attended the Time 100 gala evening in New York on Tuesday evening and the long trip might see the Egyptian benched against Huddersfield.

The Liverpool forward has outscored every forward in the Premier League since the start of last season, amassing 51 goals in that space of time.

He has been recognised by Time magazine for his influence in the world of football, with the 26-year-old emerging as a role model for young footballers across the globe.

Aspiring stars from Africa will find the former Chelsea forward a source of inspiration, in particular.

The honour of being named in the Time 100 might, however, see him start from the bench when Liverpool host Huddersfield on Friday.

The flight to New York from Merseyside is a 6600-mile round trip which will see Salah on a plane for a long time.

Of course, he will be flying in a private jet which is naturally going to be more comfortable than economy class on a commercial jet.

That said, with Liverpool playing Barcelona on Wednesday and the Egyptian crucial to his side’s chances of securing a first leg advantage over the Catalonians, resting him for at least 45 minutes could be ideal.

Already relegated Huddersfield is the perfect game for Klopp to rest key players.

Not to underestimate the Terriers by any means but assuming that a Liverpool side that has 88 points this season can beat a team which has only got 14 points is fair.

Salah most definitely won’t want to be rested. He looked unhappy that he wasn’t able to take the penalty he won against Cardiff City as Milner, the designated spot-kick taker, dispatched it.

With there a three way tie between Salah, Aguero and Aubameyang for the Premier League Golden Boot, Mo will want to start the last three games of the season.

What do you think? Will Salah start against Huddersfield or will Jurgen Klopp rest his most prolific forward?
