Mohamed Salah injury update: Liverpool ace could be available for Man United clash

Liverpool have been handed a major injury boost, with Monday scans showing Mohamed Salah suffered a minor ankle injury. 

It was earlier feared that the Egyptian had suffered a serious injury, following a nasty challenge from Leicester City's Hamza Choudhury in their 2-1 home win. 

However, scans done on Monday showed only minor damages to his ankle, and he might be available for the tie against Manchester United.

Coach Jurgen Klopp blasted Choudhury for the challenge, saying he should have been given a red card. 

"It’s just a challenge which I really don’t understand how he can do it because the ball is far away,"

"The player is full sprint to bring him down without the ball around, for me, there is only one colour card,"

"It is dangerous as hell. I don’t want to cause the boy [Choudhury] any problems but he has to calm down. He has to calm down. This is not the first situation like this. Super player but this kind of challenges… no,"

The attacker will not feature in Egypt's friendly matches, meaning he will have two full weeks to fully recover. 

Following their win over the Foxes, the Reds extended their lead at top of the table to eight points over second-placed Manchester City, who lost 2-0 at home to Wolves.
