Liverpool Handed Huge Double Injury Boost Ahead Of Man City Showdown
Liverpool have been handed a double injury boost ahead of their showdown with Man City with Mohamed Salah and Alberto Moreno closing-in on their comebacks
Liverpool have been handed a huge double injury boost ahead of their showdown with Manchester City with Mohamed Salah and Alberto Moreno closing-in on their comebacks, according to the Liverpool Echo.
Salah was forced to sit out Liverpool’s Premier League win at Burnley last week while he also missed the 2-1 FA Cup win over Everton on Friday night due to a groin injury.
However, the Liverpool Echo claim Salah is set to hand Jurgen Klopp a huge boost as he’s winning his race to be fit for the visit of Manchester City to Anfield on Sunday afternoon.
The Egyptian international travelled with the rest of the Reds squad for their short warm-weather break in Dubai at the weekend and is expected to report for training at Melwood on Wednesday morning.
The newspaper says Salah has been responding well to treatment and is now expected to be passed fit to face the run-away Premier League leaders at the weekend.
It would be a huge boost for Liverpool if Salah is available as the attacker has been in sensational form this season having scored 23 goals in all competitions and his return will be well-timed given Philippe Coutinho’s exit to Barcelona.
There is also positive news regarding Moreno as the Liverpool Echo also claim the Spanish international is set to return to training this week as he steps-up his recovery from an ankle injury.
Moreno has been forced to miss the last nine games in all competitions after suffering the injury during Liverpool’s Champions League win over Spartak Moscow at the start of December.
It looks like the defender is set to resume training but it remains to be seen whether Moreno will be fit enough to feature against City so Andrew Robertson may continue at left-back this weekend.
Liverpool head in to the game on Sunday sitting three points clear in fourth spot in the table so Klopp will be hoping to close in on Chelsea with another positive result at Anfield.
