Salah fitness gives Liverpool a boost

Juergen Klopp expects forward Mohamed Salah to be ready for Liverpool’s trip to Arsenal despite a wrist injury but midfielders Jordan Henderson and Naby Keita are both ruled.

Salah was seen training with a protective cast on his forearm this week but Klopp dismissed any fresh injury concern relating to the Egyptian.

“Mo, it is nothing really serious — it’s a kind of inflammation of the tendon,” Klopp told a news conference on Friday. “That’s pretty much all.

“It (the support) was only for protection — the pictures you saw were only protection and it has no influence.”

Henderson and Keita remain on the sidelines with hamstring injuries and will not be available for the clash at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday.

The pair are also a doubt for the Champions League trip to Red Star Belgrade on Tuesday.
