Liverpool are quickly heading back into match mode with a midweek trip to Arsenal on the horizon, while Mohamed Salah has dominated Monday headlines regarding the Reds.
Konate back with the group – but 3 missing
Ibrahima Konate has been nowhere to be seen over the past couple of matches, with the centre-back suspected to be one of those at the club having tested positive for Covid.
But he’s back in training and with the main group this week, as Jurgen Klopp‘s defensive ranks were swelled in the centre…but lessened on the flanks.
Kostas Tsimikas wasn’t in action and nor was James Milner, who filled in at right-back against Norwich again recently and could be an option for the same role at the weekend against Nottingham Forest.
Perhaps most notably, though, was Mohamed Salah‘s absence after he left the pitch in the second half against Brighton with an apparent foot injury.
Salah, Salah and Salah
- Mo Salah has 16 months left on his contract but the latest reports claim the Reds won’t “demolish a wage structure” to keep the forward at the club beyond 2023
- Arsene Wenger has called our Egyptian King a mix of Messi and Ronaldo and says the Reds simply have to find a way to get him to renew
- Premier League title talk is the only thing Salah himself is concerned with as he took to social media with an apparently focused and positive post…oh, what to believe!
