Liverpool have been struggling with player availability in recent weeks and months. Jürgen Klopp has lost countless players to illness and injury since the start of the season. We’ve managed to scrape by without some key stars so far but the sooner the side is back to full fitness the better. Liverpool fans have been ecstatic on Twitter reacting to a Mo Salah fitness update.
Jürgen Klopp has seen well over a dozen of his players ruled out at one time or another this season.
The boss has been devastated by a punishing schedule and a global health crisis.
Thiago has been ruled out with both illness and injury having tested positive before being crunched by Richarlison in the Merseyside Derby.
Most recently the boss lost Mo Salah for the weekend after the winger test positive whilst away on international duty with Egypt.
Mo Salah fitness boost
After Liverpool cruised past Leicester City this weekend, Jürgen Klopp delivered news of a major Mo Salah fitness boost.
The boss confirmed, as reported by David Lynch, that the Egyptian will be back in training this week and could feature against Atalanta.
The Reds will take on the Italians at Anfield on Wednesday night having pasted them 5-0 in their own backyard before the international break.
Given that the side managed just fine without Mo on Sunday night, the boss may decide to hold the Egyptian back for this weekend’s Premier League tie with Brighton.
Liverpool fans react to Mo Salah news
Some fans want him wrapped in cotton wool.
It’s a view shared by many given our success in the Champions League this season.
However, injuries elsewhere could force the gaffer’s hand.
We’re so lucky to have such depth.
And of course, fans were just made up with the news.
