Liverpool dealt fresh injury blow, 9 players could now miss Leicester clash

During his time in his homeland Salah was pictured at his brother's wedding and while Klopp did not publicly criticise his 10-goal forward he said he had personally adopted a more cautious approach to social events.

Salah is out of Liverpool's match with Premier League leaders Leicester City on Sunday after returning a positive COVID-19 test while on worldwide duty, but Klopp defended the Egypt global, who was pictured celebrating his brother's wedding among other guests.

"I was in Germany in the summer and a friend moved a birthday party for me and I decided not to go". In other situations there is more social pressure on you and a brother's wedding is a very special moment. What I can say about my players: they are incredibly disciplined. Football players in general were incredibly disciplined.

With Jurgen Klopp's side having lost Joe Gomez to injury since, they need any good news they can get on injuries, and Van Dijk may have supplied one. How they happen is something we are constantly anxious about.

"All the rest is between Mo and me - we have done that already".

Liverpool have issues in defence too as Trent Alexander-Arnold is set to miss the visit of Leicester due to a calf injury that he sustained before the worldwide break while Joe Gomez has been ruled out for most of the season with a knee injury.

Andy Robertson, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Fabinho, Jordan Henderson, Rhys Williams and Gomez have all since picked up an injury of some sort since.

"You take it game by game".

Jordan Henderson has given Liverpool another injury headache meaning up to nine players are set to miss Sunday's Premier League clash with Leicester City, according to The Times. "At the moment it hits you but the next moment you are in the solution process".

"I've been in close contact with him [Salah] all over the time", Klopp told a news conference on Friday.

"We will fight with all we have and that means if the problem becomes bigger you get closer to each other".

"We have the situation we have".
