Jürgen Klopp, manager of Liverpool, said that Mohamed Salahwho withdrew injured from the FA Cup final a week ago, does not want to take any chances ahead of the Champions League final against Real Madrid, and in the run-up to the duel in which the ‘Reds’ will play their last chance to snatch the Premier League from Manchester City.
The Egyptian suffered a groin muscle problem half an hour into the game against Chelsea and was not called up for the midweek match against Southampton. “Mo doesn’t want to take any chances. There’s no doubt about them, but I think she looks good”, assured the German about the Salah situation.
In addition to Salahthe Liverpool He has doubts about Virgil Van Dijk and Fabinho, who were not against Southampton either and could have minutes this Sunday against Wolverhampton Wanderers, as the last litmus test before May 28.
“I don’t know what we’ll do on the weekend. My solution would be that they will play the weekend or at least be on the bench”, assured Klopp, who will have the opportunity to win his second Premier League this Sunday. For this, he will have to beat Wolves and wait for Manchester City’s puncture against Aston Villa.
This is how nursing goes at Anfield
While Ancelotti’s men have been able to rest and rotate in their league games (already having won the title), at Anfield the story is totally different. The fight for the Premier League continues and the list of fallen, too. The duel against Southampton has left a new ‘injured’.
It’s about the defender joe gomez, who this Tuesday came out as a starter, but could not complete the match. The 24-year-old suffered a heavy blow to his ankle that prevented him from going out in the second half. Henderson came in as his replacement.
Although Gomez is not one of the usual starters for Klopp, he is a spare part, but what is most striking and worrying at Anfield is that the injuries have not stopped since they qualified for the Champions League final.
First was Fabinho a week ago in the match against Aston Villa, while Mohamed Salah y Virgil van Dijk they fell in the FA Cup final that the ‘Reds’ won over the weekend against Chelsea. And now Joe Gomez. Four fallen, three of them from the front line, which Klopp hopes, and crosses his fingers, may be available for Paris.
