It was an important return to training for Jürgen Klopp's Liverpool as Mohamed Salah joined the rest of his team-mates to begin preparations for the crucial weeks ahead in the Premier League, EFL Carabao Cup, Emirates FA Cup and UEFA Europa League. The 31-year-old Egyptian winger is the mainstay of the Anfield outfit's attack.

Given that he missed the final group stage matchday and the last 16 of the 2024 Africa Cup of Nations with Egypt due to a severe muscle strain in his back, his recovery is an interesting 'boost' for the Reds ahead of their matches and commitments in all competitions.

In the first instance, the pressure on Manchester City in the Premier League is considerable, as Pep Guardiola's men are currently in a position to snatch the top spot with a game in hand and only a two-point gap at the top of the table. In addition, Saturday's (17/02) game against Brentford is vital, as failure to do so would open the door completely for the Citizens.

Following this, the German manager's charges also face the Carabao Cup final against Chelsea on Sunday 25 February at Wembley, which will be the first chance to hand Klopp a title on his way out of Anfield Road, and Salah is destined to be one of the leading lights in guiding the Reds to the FA Cup.

The bad news

However, it is not all good news as journalist Paul Joyce reports that Trent Alexander-Arnold will miss the Carabao Cup final with Chelsea after aggravating his knee injury. At the same time Dominik Szoboszlai is also thought to be a doubt for the Wembley clash against Chelsea after suffering a hamstring problem.
