Mohamed Salah back in full Liverpool training after muscle injury as one other star spot in training today…



Following his recovery from a muscle injury sustained during the Africa Cup of Nations, Liverpool winger Mohamed Salah has returned to full training with the Reds. Salah, who has rarely faced injury setbacks since joining the club, immediately returned to Merseyside after picking up the injury during his team’s second group game against Ghana.


After suffering an injury during Egypt’s second group game against Ghana, the former Chelsea and Roma attacker, who has rarely been sidelined since joining Liverpool, immediately flew back to Merseyside for treatment. Despite Egypt’s hopes that the 31-year-old would rejoin the team in Ivory Coast for the later stages of the tournament, Salah decided to prioritize his recovery with his club. Unfortunately, without their star player, the Pharaohs were defeated by DR Congo in the last 16, resulting in their elimination from the competition without a single victory.


Liverpool enjoyed comfortable victories at home against Chelsea and Burnley while Salah was absent. However, they suffered a deserved 3-1 defeat to Arsenal at the Emirates, narrowing their lead over the Gunners to just two points at the top of the table.


Despite this setback, Jurgen Klopp’s team still holds the same advantage over reigning champions Manchester City. However, City has a game in hand, which means that Liverpool’s chances of winning the Premier League title are currently not in their control due to their injury woes.


Nevertheless, there was a positive development for Liverpool on Tuesday afternoon when Salah was seen back in full training for the first time since his injury. He joined his teammates with a radiant smile on his face, providing a much-needed boost for the Reds.


Later in the day, photos from Liverpool’s training session were uploaded, showing Salah actively participating with the ball at his feet. Whether he will be available for the upcoming clash against Brentford this weekend remains uncertain.


Klopp informed the media before the Burnley match that Salah would be resuming “certain aspects of training” this week. This is a positive development as Salah is getting closer to making his first appearance for Liverpool since New Year’s Day.


During that match, the 31-year-old scored two goals and provided an assist in Liverpool’s 4-2 victory over Newcastle United. This impressive performance brought his total tally for the season to 18 goals and nine assists from 27 matches across all competitions.


In addition to Salah’s return, Alisson Becker and Joe Gomez were also back at Kirkby after recovering from a bout of flu that had affected the Liverpool training base. Their presence is a boost for the team following their successful outing against Burnley on Saturday.


Ibrahima Konate is set to make his return from suspension for the upcoming match against Brentford.


Additionally, Conor Bradley, who missed two games due to the passing of his father, participated in Tuesday’s training session.


However, Trent Alexander-Arnold, who suffered a knee injury against the Clarets, and Dominik Szoboszlai, who has a hamstring injury, may not be available for the EFL Cup final against Chelsea on February 25.


Unfortunately, Joel Matip and Stefan Bajcetic are still sidelined with knee and calf injuries respectively. Furthermore, Thiago Alcantara, who recently recovered from a hip problem, has sustained a new muscle injury in the defeat to Arsenal and has returned to the medical bay.
