Mohamed Salah aggravated his ankle injury vs Man City

Joe Gomez replaced Mohamed Salah in the final minutes of Liverpool’s match at Anfield against Man City.

Liverpool opened up a 9-point lead over the Sky Blues with a 3-1 home win.

Salah scored Liverpool’s second of the game, following Fabinho’s opener.

Sadio Mane bagged Liverpool’s third, while Bernardo Silva scored a consolation for City.

It’s now been confirmed in the Times that Salah may have tweaked an injury against Pep Guardiola’s side:

Liverpool’s Salah originally injured vs Leicester

Salah sustained an ankle injury in Liverpool’s 2-1 win over Leicester City earlier in the season.

Hamza Choudhury took Salah out, and injured his ankle in that game.

In a worrying disclosure, the Times note that Salah “has been experiencing discomfort in the joint since then”.

Salah to undergo tests in Cairo

Salah is scheduled to play for Egypt during the international break.

The Pharoahs have matches against Kenya and Comoros in the next few days.

However, it’s now unclear whether Salah will play in those games due to his ankle issues.

Indeed, the Times confirm that Salah will have tests in the Egyptian capital to determine the extent of his problem:

Salah, 27, is scheduled to have a scan on his left ankle in Cairo when he joins up with Egypt for Thursday’s Africa Cup of Nations qualifier with Kenya.

Crystal Palace vs Liverpool

When the international break ends, Liverpool return to league action away at Crystal Palace.

It’s currently too early to say whether Salah will be fit for the Crystal Palace match.
