Mohamed Salah fit and available to play for Liverpool at Brentford, Jurgen Klopp confirms

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp says Mohamed Salah is fit, back in full training and in contention to return to the team for Saturday’s lunchtime trip to Brentford.

The Egyptian returned early from the Africa Cup of Nations with a hamstring injury but now looks set to play again for the Reds for the first time since scoring twice against Newcastle on New Year’s Day.

“Mo is back in full training that brings him automatically into contention, of course,” said Klopp about his leading scorer, who has 14 goals and eight assists in the Premier League this season.

There was more positive team news for Liverpool, with Ibrahima Konate back from suspension, Joe Gomez fit again and Alisson recovered from an illness. Conor Bradley also returns to the squad following the death of his father.

However, Thiago Alcantara and Trent Alexander-Arnold remain out. Earlier this week it was confirmed Alexander-Arnold would not be back in time from his knee problem to play for Liverpool in the Carabao Cup final against Chelsea on February 25 and Klopp says he is also doubtful Dominik Szoboszlai will be back from his thigh injury for that Wembley fixture

“I’m not sure Dom has a chance for the final but maybe,” said the Liverpool boss.

Klopp also hit back at suggestions Alexander-Arnold’s latest knee problem may have been impacted by him returning too quickly from a previous knee injury.
