Egyptian international and Liverpool striker Mohamed Salah may miss his team’s match against KRC Genk of Belgium in the UEFA Champions League at Anfield scheduled for Tuesday.
Salah sustained an injury to the ankle following a tackle from Leicester ace Hamza Choudrey almost a month ago, and is still suffering issues from that setback.
“Mohamed Salah continues to be hampered by the ankle blow he suffered when fouled by Leicester City’s Hamza Choudhury,” Liverpool Echo newspaper reported on Monday.
“He lasted an hour at Villa, and it would be no surprise for him to be benched on Tuesday,” the report said.
Salah was unable to play Egypt’s friendly match against Botswana. He also missed the Reds’ match against Manchester United last month due to the injury.
Liverpool tops the English Premier League table with 31 points, 6 points ahead of Manchester City.
Salah scored 32 Premier League goals last season, making it to the finals. He was selected as the PFA Player of the Year ahead of Manchester City title-winner Kevin De Bruyne.
