Mo Salah update: Liverpool star expected to miss Egypt’s upcoming fixtures with injury

As per the latest updates across the media this evening, Mohamed Salah looks set to sit out Egypt’s next two outings, after suffering a recurrence of his long-standing ankle injury late in Liverpool’s win over Manchester City at the weekend.

Liverpool best City

Jurgen Klopp’s table-toppers welcomed City to Anfield on Sunday, for a crucial clash in the Premier League title race.

The hosts headed into proceedings aware that a victory would see them move 8 points clear atop the English top-flight table, and a hefty 9 points clear of the champions.

Liverpool were also unbeaten in the Premier League, having secured wins in all but one of their previous 11 fixtures.

And, when all was said and done on Merseyside, the domestic dominance of the Reds continued, in a 3-1 win.

Goals from Fabinho, Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane, in the end, proved telling.

Bernardo Silva did manage to find the net for City ten minutes from time, but the attacker’s strike eventually proved little more than a consolation.

Salah crocked

As such, evidently, Liverpool this past weekend took a considerable step towards securing the Premier League title.

One concern on an otherwise-superb evening for all associated with the Merseysiders, however, came on the personnel front.

With just minutes remaining in the clash, Mohamed Salah was replaced by Joe Gomez.

Subsequent reports, meanwhile, suggested that Liverpool were fearful that their star attacker aggravated a long-standing ankle problem versus Manchester City.

As such, Salah was expected to undergo a scan, with the reliable Liverpool Echo having this evening reported that this has since taken place.

And the results are said to have been far from reassuring, with the 27-year-old looking set to miss Egypt’s upcoming AFCON qualifiers versus Kenya and Comoros over the next week:
