Mohamed Salah back in training after ‘limping’ down tunnel before West Ham test

Mohamed Salah is set to feature for Liverpool against West Ham on Saturday.

Jurgen Klopp would have been concerned after watching the Egyptian forward limp down the tunnel during the Champions League victory over Midtjylland on Tuesday – but he has been training as normal.

The German boss didn’t address a potential injury to the 28-year-old, who has scored seven goals in all competitions this season while taking his tally for the club to a total of 101.

According to Premier Injuries, Salah trained as normal with the group on Thursday.

Klopp told reporters when asked for an injury update this week: "Fabinho, I don’t know.

"Muscle injuries are like this, you get the result tomorrow morning probably. I don’t know [about Joel Matip], we have to see.

"Look, if it would be only one game we play, if it was the last game of the season, I think we could make probably one or the other fit for one game – but we play three days later again and we need players again.

"The players who are now injured, we cannot use them on the first day of being fit again – or not injured anymore. They need a proper build-up for the rest of the season and that’s what we try.

"It is this juggle all the time between the fit players – how much can they play still? – and when we can use the others again?

"We are really interested in that fact so you can imagine we try everything to make everybody fit as quickly as possible."

In another blow for David Moyes, star forward Michail Antonio will miss out.

The Scot said on Friday: “He's been great for us, he's an important member of the team.

“We don't think it is too bad but it is enough to keep him out of this game that is for sure.”

Before adding: “We have really shown a great team ethic. We can score from all different areas, we are playing well.

“I am sure Liverpool will say the same with Virgil van Dijk. We will miss him.

“Micky has been as good as any striker in the league.”
