Liverpool face anxious wait over Salah injury

Liverpool are hopeful Mohamed Salah can be fit for Saturday's Premier League trip to Everton, but will not rush the forward back into action just for the Merseyside derby, manager Juergen Klopp said on Friday.

With the second leg at the Etihad only three days away, Salah faces a race against time to be fit with Klopp in no mood to throw him into the blood and thunder of a match against Everton at Goodison Park today. That was enough for me to not even ask the doctor how he was.

Egyptian star Mohamed Salah has been nominated for the UEFA Champions League Player of the Week award after Liverpool's win over Manchester City on Wednesday.

However, Klopp will not risk playing Salah in the Premier League fixture, keen to keep him fresh for next Tuesday's second leg tie with Manchester City.

Pressed again on whether Liverpool might risk Salah given circumstances, Klopp replied: "I can not make Mo available because it's the derby".

"We have a hard situation, everybody knows that", said Klopp.

"If he's a doubt, he'll not be involved".

Before kickoff, Klopp told Sky Sports: "As always, [we were] in close talks with the medical department [to find out] who is 100 per cent".

Klopp also hinted Danny Ings will start against the Toffees on Saturday, affording Roberto Firmino a rest ahead of the return trip to Manchester.

"We have now a problem to find somehow players for Saturday, and everyone's telling us it's the most important game of the year, and that's quite hard". Afterwards, he said he feels good, "I will be fine".
