Liverpool anticipate major injury boost for Manchester City clash

Mo Salah expected to play some part in the potential title-decider clash

Liverpool is poised to receive a significant injury boost ahead of their crucial Premier League match against Manchester City this Sunday. The potential return of Mo Salah, the club's star player, could be a game-changer in this top-of-the-table clash.

According to recent reports, Mo Salah is set to resume full training today after suffering from a recurring muscle problem. This issue had briefly sidelined him during the 4-1 victory over Brentford last month. Since New Year’s Day, that match remains his only appearance for Liverpool due to his involvement with Egypt at the Africa Cup of Nations being cut short by a hamstring issue.

Salah is unlikely to be risked for the Europa League match against Sparta Prague on Thursday. However, if he can complete almost an entire week of training without any issues, there's a possibility he could feature in the upcoming match against Man City at Anfield - especially considering he scored the winning goal in that fixture last season.

Salah’s presence on field is enough to lift spirits of dressing room

Salah's potential return would provide an enormous morale boost for Liverpool squad as they prepare for their monumental showdown with Man City. This comes at an opportune time given Diogo Jota’s injury which will keep him out for another few weeks at best.

If Salah does play against Man City, it may trigger a tug-of-war with Egypt. The Egyptian Football Association has emphasized that they will call him up for their March fixtures if he plays for his club before then.

However, right now Liverpool’s priority is getting Salah back into full training and hopefully fit enough to participate in some capacity against Pep Guardiola’s side.

Salah has started training but yet to receive green signal

In anticipation of these developments, many eyes will be focused on AXA Training Centre over the next few days. Fans and pundits alike are eager to see if the Egyptian King makes his much-awaited appearance.

Salah's potential return could significantly influence Liverpool's performance in their upcoming match against Manchester City. His presence on the field not only boosts team morale but also adds a formidable force to Liverpool's attacking line. As we await further updates, it is clear that this development could have far-reaching implications for both club and country commitments.
