Like almost every season, Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp is struggling with injuries and sometimes when it comes to the decisive part of the season. The Reds are top of the Premier League, but if Pep Guardiola's Manchester City win their game in hand against Brentford - whom they beat 3-1 on Monday - they will be one point clear at the top.

A key issue for Liverpool is when Mohamed Salah, their most influential player who was injured with Egypt at the Africa Cup, will be able to return to the team. As he himself has posted on social media, Salah is working flat out to recover as soon as possible, but Klopp is not willing to take any risks by forcing the Egyptian King's return.

Worryingly, reports from Dominik Szoboszlai's home country of Hungary regarding the midfielder's injury, who missed Sunday's 3-1 win over Arsenal for Mikel Arteta's side, are worrying. A Magyar media report on Tuesday said Szoboszlai could be out for three to four weeks with a similar ailment to the one he picked up in January.

Szoboszlai's injury

Szoboszlai would miss, if confirmed, the Premier League games against Burnley, Brentford, Luton and Nottingham Forest, the Carabao Cup final against Chelsea, the last 16 of the FA Cup against Watford or Southampton and perhaps the first leg of the last 16 of the Europa League (the opponent is not yet known). One more significant absence for Klopp, but other versions claim it will be for less time.
