Posted by

The Merseyside derby is nearly upon us with Everton hosting Liverpool at Goodison Park.

Earlier reports suggested that Mohamed Salah would not be risked after he pulled up against Manchester City during the Champions League first leg and he has not made the match day squad today.

Reds’ manager, Jurgen Klopp, suggested that he’d only play Klopp if he was “100%” fit and would risk losing his star man.

And with the second leg against City next week, it is paramount that Salah doesn’t further injure himself, which could jeopardise his participation for the rest of the season.

Klopp said: “You cannot push a player through a game, not even our supporters would want that.

“If he’s a doubt, he will not be involved, that’s how it is with all of them, if they are not 100 per cent fit they cannot be involved.

“But I would not rest a player if he had nothing.”

Nathaniel Clyne, Ragnar Klavan, Gigi Wijnaldum, Dominic Solanke and Danny Ings come in for Liverpool, replacing Trent Alexander-Arnold, Andrew Robertson, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Roberto Firmino and Salah.
