The Mirror journalist David Maddock has said that Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah was not badly injured in yesterday’s 2-1 win against Leicester City:
Good news for #LFC – Salah took a bad knock at the end of game, but initial checks have shown injury not serious – not as bad as first appeared.

Salah had to be substituted after a reckless challenge from Hamza Choudhury, who was only punished with a yellow card for the foul, much to manager Jurgen Klopp’s anger after the game.
In any case, fans on Twitter are just happy to hear that Salah should be back in action very soon:

The positive here is that he’s probably not going to be considered for Egypt duty in the Int break

And we still have the international break so it’s fine

The international break has come at a pretty good time so Salah can get over the knock. He wasn’t expected to go away with Egypt anyway so he should now have two weeks rest before Liverpool’s next game against Manchester United.
Whether that will be enough time for him to feature in the North West Derby, we shall have to wait for the official prognosis from the club’s medical team, but it appears at least, the injury is not as bad as first feared.
