The Merseyside club was successful in coming back when entertaining Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League continued at Anfield on Sunday (10/27). Was left behind by a quick goal by Harry Kane at the beginning of the fight, the host turned the situation through Jordan Henderson and Salah penalty.
Positive results that make Liverpool continue to master the standings with 28 points and at the same time maintaining an unbeaten record in domestic competition. As for Salah, it was his eighth goal of the season in all competitions.
When totaled, the former AS Roma striker has already won 50 goals in 58 matches at Anfield. Only Roger Hunt who collected 50 goals the fastest when appearing at home. It’s just that the party of the Reds became tasteless because Salah had to have an ankle injury.
The catastrophe occurred in the 85th minute that made Klopp was forced to replace it with Joshep Gomez. This is what makes the Red supporters worried. They worry that Salah must rest long enough and be absent during the home match against Arsenal in the last 16 of the League Cup on Thursday (10/31).
“It’s just an ankle. His condition is fine. But, the longer he competed, his muscles could get tired. This often happens. But, when you experience it, it can look even worse, “Klopp said, reported sky sport.
Klopp also stated that the reason for replacing Salah was not because the injury was severe. But, to prevent undesirable things. “It doesn’t make sense if we continue to play until the end. Because we still have other players. There are still choices. That is, nothing serious, “said Klopp.
