Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp offers Mohamed Salah injury update ahead of Genk
The Reds take on Genk in the Champions League next on Wednesday night in Belgium and they could do with his services.
Salah has formed a deadly partnership with Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane during his three seasons at Anfield.
But he was injured before the international break during Liverpool’s 2-1 win over Leicester in the Premier League.
Hamza Choudhury’s rough challenge left the Egyptian holding his ankle and he hobbled off as a result.
And despite a prolonged period of rest, Salah was unable to prove his fitness for their match against United on Sunday.
“Mo was not ready, that’s how it is,” the manager told Sky Sports.
“He couldn’t train with the team; I don’t know where it came from that everybody said he will play.
“There was pretty much no chance for today, maybe for Wednesday, we have to see.”
Liverpool saw their eight-game winning streak to the season come to an end after drawing 1-1 at Old Trafford.
Should VAR have ruled out Marcus Rashford’s goal?
0+ VOTES SO FAR
Marcus Rashford struck in controversial circumstances to open the scores in the first-half as VAR ruled that Victor Lindelof had not fouled Divock Origi in the build-up.
However, Adam Lallana was an unlikely hero after coming on off the bench to equalise with five minutes to go to save Klopp’s unbeaten run.
