Liverpool steamrolled their Premier League counterparts Manchester City in the first leg of the quarter-finals of the Champions League. But the downside of the night was that their outstanding player Mohammed Salah hobbled off in the second half in what looked like a groin injury.
The Egyptian superstar has been in a superb form this season, and he added to his tally to make it his 38th goal of the campaign when he opened the scoring in the game. The Reds went on to win the game 3-0 with Chamberlain and Mane the other two scorers.
According to Liverpool’s official website, the sensational winger will be assessed in the coming hours to know the full extent of the injury. When asked for an update on the player, Red’s boss Jurgen Klopp said
“He came to the sideline and said he sometimes feels something; for me, that was enough for me not even to ask the Doc how he was, we immediately took him off the pitch.
“After the game, I asked him, and he said, ‘I will be good, it will be fine.’ But now we have to wait for the real diagnosis, not Mo’s self-diagnosis.
“We will see, I don’t know at the moment.”
