The English champion will have to be patient to see Mohamed Salah operational again, affected by the coronavirus and again positive on Wednesday. An absence which adds to the long list which handicaps Jürgen Klopp.
Which team against Leicester this weekend? Jürgen Klopp, like his Foxes counterpart, faces a significant number of injured players on the occasion of Matchday 9 of the Premier League: Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Fabinho, Thiago Alcantara, Jordan Henderson, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Andrew Robertson …
A massacre in which Mohamed Salah participates, announced last Friday contaminated by the coronavirus. The Egyptian international was then forced to forfeit the double confrontation against Togo (November 14 and 17), during the CAN 2021 qualifiers.
His situation embarrasses the Liverpool staff especially as Salah tested positive again on Wednesday, the Pharaohs announced on their website. Still in isolation in Egypt, the left-hander must wait several days to perform new tests that everyone hopes will be negative.
Salah will not be able to be on his feet Sunday at Anfield against Leicester, and three days later against Atalanta (4th day of the Champions League). His absence is expected to last at least until the following weekend, and the trip to Brighton on November 28.
