Andrew Robertson and Mo Salah could miss the next game with ankle injuries, The Liverpool Echo reports.
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has two fresh injury concerns for this weekend. Both Robertson and Salah aggravated pre-existing ankle knocks during the 3-1 win over Manchester City prior to the international break.
Salah’s injury flared up after a sliding challenge from Fernandinho, while Robertson was hurt by a tackle from Rodri. Both players had to drop out of international duty because of this.
Egypt star Salah did not play in the AFCON qualifiers after undergoing a scan in Cairo. Meanwhile, Robertson dropped out of the Scotland squad because he did not want to make his ankle worse.
Joe Gomez was also a concern for the upcoming game against Crystal Palace. However, the 22-year-old, who dropped out of the England squad with a knee injury, is expected to be fit for the weekend.
Losing Robertson and Salah presents Klopp with two major selection concerns. Firstly, he has to find someone to fill in at left-back to replace Robertson. This will probably be James Milner, who is reliable but not as impressive as Robertson.
Salah’s absence would break up the front three with Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane. Divock Origi will eye a starting spot while Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Adam Lallana are also in contention.
