Liverpool handed huge injury boost ahead of Manchester City clash

Liverpool should welcome Mohamed Salah back from injury against Manchester City after he sat out their last two games with a groin problem.

The Egypt international has been one of the Reds’ most important players this season, scoring 23 goals in 29 games since his summer move from Roma.

With Liverpool also losing Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona over the weekend, Jurgen Klopp could do with everyone available more than ever, and Salah now looks set to take over as the undisputed star of this team.

According to the Metro, the 25-year-old has been back in training this week and looks set to hand Klopp that big boost by coming back as Liverpool host City at Anfield.

Liverpool lost 5-0 to City at the Etihad Stadium in September, but look to have improved since then and will be looking to halt their unbeaten start to the season.

That will be no easy task, however, even with Salah in the side, as Pep Guardiola’s men have looked absolutely unstoppable for so much of this campaign.

Still, they did lose 1-0 at Anfield last season and unlike Liverpool did not get the advantage of a rest in midweek due to playing Bristol City in the Carbao Cup semi-final first leg.
