Liverpool winger Mohamed Salah has handed Jurgen Klopp a huge boost ahead of Sunday’s clash against Manchester City by returning to first-team training.
Salah missed Liverpool’s last two games against Everton and Burnley with a groin problem and the Egyptian feared he’d missed the clash against Pep Guardiola’s league leaders at Anfield.
The Egypt international, who is behind Harry Kane has bagged an impressive 17 league goals since making a £34 million move from Roma last summer. 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.

Daniel Sturridge, who last started for the club on November 25th, also returned to full training after missing the last six weeks of action. Liverpool is three points above Spurs in fourth place in the Premier League but City will be favourites to extend their incredible unbeaten run when they visit Merseyside.
Guardiola’s men came from behind to beat Bristol City 2-1 in the League Cup semi-finals earlier this week and have won 20 of their 22 league games this term.
