Liverpool forward Mo Salah is reportedly undergoing an individual training regime in order to ensure he is fit to face Manchester United on Sunday.
As per the Daily Mirror, Salah is still feeling the impact of Hamza Choudhury’s challenge in the closing stages of the Reds’ last match, against Leicester, which forced him off in the closing stages.
They report that Salah is now expected to start against Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s struggling side, having sustained an ankle injury against the Foxes.
The Reds will be looking to maintain their 100 per cent record in the Premier League this season at the home of their bitterest rivals, who lost 1-0 at Newcastle last time out.
TBR’s View – Golden chance to break Old Trafford struggles on Sunday
Salah was marked out of the game by Ashley Young in 2018, when United secured a 2-1 victory, before being subdued in a 0-0 draw in February.
That was despite United suffering three first half injuries and offering next to nothing as an attacking threat in the second half.
But Salah and co have a huge opportunity to make amends for those poor results on Sunday. Seldom can they have gone into a trip at Old Trafford as such huge favourites.
Now Salah is expected to be fit, he will have no excuse for failing to deliver against a United defence which was exposed by Matty Longstaff in its last outing.
