Mo Salah has made his first training return to Liverpool after suffering an injury on January 18 while representing Egypt in the Africa Cup of Nations.
Mo Salah has resumed team training and could make his Liverpool comeback on Saturday against Brentford.
The Reds’ top scorer with eighteen goals hasn’t appeared in a game since their 4-2 triumph against Newcastle United on New Year’s Day. He was sidelined for the Africa Cup of Nations with Egypt, when he sustained a muscle injury against Ghana.
After sustaining the injury last month, the Pharaohs skipper was airlifted back from the Ivory Coast and has been recovering at Liverpool’s AXA Training Centre base in Kirkby, working towards a specially designed training regimen.
In preparation for the Premier League leaders’ visit to Gtech Community Stadium on Saturday lunchtime, Salah was among the Reds group that exercised at the stadium on Tuesday. Klopp was training them.
When the leaders look to go five points clear ahead of Arsenal’s trip to Burnley and Manchester City’s hosting of Chelsea later that day, Salah may make his first Premier League start in six weeks. Klopp will provide an update on the No. 11’s fitness during his Friday press conference.
The announcement is expected to provide a big lift for Liverpool, who play Chelsea in the Carabao Cup final at Wembley next Sunday. On February 21, Klopp’s team will also host Luton Town.
Following their absences from Saturday’s 3-1 victory over Burnley due to what Klopp called the “flu,” Alisson Becker and Joe Gomez participated in the workout as well. Conor Bradley also proclaimed himself well to play following his father’s death earlier this month.
