Liverpool receive huge boost ahead of Manchester City clash

Adjust Comment Print

There's little doubt about the biggest game in the Premier League this weekend.

Zinedine Zidane's men have struggled significantly this season and no player has scored more than four goals for them in the Spanish top flight, so it's clear an injection of firepower would go a long way.

The Liverpool Echo is reporting that the Egypt global could be set to return to action for the Reds against the Premier League leaders at Anfield. Salah also sat out the 2-1 FA Cup win over Everton.

Liverpool will, of course, be without Philippe Coutinho after his £142m move to Barcelona this week but Salah is expected to start after participating in a full session today.

You can read the full exclusive interview with the 2017 CAF African Player of the Year, during which he also chats about his hard time at Chelsea and how Liverpool can beat Manchester City on Sunday, in this week's edition of Soccer Laduma, issue 1055.

According to the Liverpool Echo, Salah is set to report for training at Melwood on Tuesday, after a short break with the rest of the squad in Dubai. He has responded well to treatment, and as it stands is in line to be available at the weekend.

Jordan Henderson and Alberto Moreno were both absent as they continue their respective rehabs while Nathaniel Clyne is still AWOL. Whether he can dislodge Andrew Robertson out the team is another question.
