According to a recent report by the Evening Standard, Liverpool talisman Mohamed Salah has been declared fit to feature in this Sunday’s league clash versus Wolverhampton Wanders at Anfield. The Egyptian speedster suffered a minor concussion while playing against Newcastle United last weekend. He was substituted soon after but his injury was severe enough to rule him out of the contest against Barcelona which the Reds ended up winning by a 4-0 scoreline in midweek.
What Does Salah’s Availability Mean For Liverpool?
The possibility of Salah being back for the final league match of this campaign will instil more belief on Jurgen Klopp’s players as they try to emerge victorious on Sunday with the hope that it would be enough for them to clinch the league title.
The Egyptian Is Chasing Personal Honours Which Will Keep Him Extra-Motivated On Sunday
Salah has failed to live up to the heights of last season but he has still managed to put his name at the top of the Premier League’s goal-scoring charts. The Egyptian wing wizard would have a great chance to win the golden boot as he is currently leading the league with 22 goals to his name.
Hence, he would not want to miss out on this game versus Wolves as it would give him an ideal opportunity to add to his goal-tally and secure the golden boot once and for all ahead of players such as Sergio Aguero (20), Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (20) and Salah’s partner in crime, Sadio Mane (20).
Liverpool’s Title Hopes Are Slim But They Are Still Expected To Win This Weekend
Furthermore, there is an added motivation for the Liverpool players to perform well as they still have an outside shot to win the title. Klopp would need his best players back if the Reds are to end their domestic campaign on a high.
Salah’s Possible Return: Big Boost For Klopp?
There is no doubt that Salah’s return would be a massive boost for Liverpool and their chances of claiming a positive result on Sunday. The 26-year-old has featured in 50 matches for the Merseyside outfit this term, registering 26 goals while creating 13 assists in all competitions.
Klopp will feel much better with Salah in his side even though Divock Origi and Xherdan Shaqiri were quite impressive in the Egyptian’s absence against Barca on Tuesday night. The former AS Roma talent’s electric pace and ability to score goals will strike fear in the hearts of the Wolves defenders. Hence, Salah’s availability this weekend will be a huge boost for the Reds as they look to finish this campaign with an incredible tally of 97 points.
