Liverpool Forward Set To Be Passed Fit For Clash Vs Manchester United: Big Boost For Klopp?

According to a recent report by the Liverpool Echo, Liverpool winger Mohamed Salah is expected to start in this weekend’s encounter versus Manchester United at Old Trafford. The same source has claimed that the Egyptian international will be fit in time to face the Red Devils on Sunday after recovering from his ankle injury during the international break.

Salah’s Outstanding Second-Stint In England

Salah has been an integral component of Jurgen Klopp’s attack at Anfield. So having him back for the trip to Manchester will be a welcome bit of news for everyone associated with the Merseyside club. The Egypt international is a prolific goal-scorer and has won the Premier League golden boot award for the past two seasons.

The 27-year-old has made a total of 12 appearances for the Reds this term, netting six goals while grabbing three assists on all fronts. Even though he is yet to fire on all cylinders for Liverpool this season, this Sunday’s match against Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men could be a perfect opportunity for him to return to his goal-scoring ways in the English top-flight.

Salah has represented Egypt in 67 international matches and has netted 41 goals for his homeland thus far. He is currently one of the most feared attackers in European football after he helped the Reds emerge victorious in last season’s UEFA Champions League.

What Does The Egyptian Forward Add To Klopp’s Team?

Salah has a terrific turn of pace which often helps him beat his marker in and around the opposition penalty area. He boasts tremendous ball-control and can be a hard man to dispossess. The Egyptian wide player’s finishing has also improved over the past couple of seasons which has put his name amongst the best forwards in Liverpool’s history.

Salah Set To Feature Vs Man United: Huge Boost For The European Champions?

Having Salah fit and available for selection will be a huge boost for Klopp and his chances of coming away with a positive result from the Theatre of Dreams. Without the ‘Egyptian King’, the Liverpool attack cannot function at a high level as Divock Origi and Xherdan Shaqiri does not possess the same goal-threat up top.

Thus, the Kopites around the world will be counting their lucky stars that Salah’s injury was not as serious as first presumed. It now seems like he is in line to get the nod to start versus Man United this weekend.
