Arsenal to beat Liverpool

Arsenal handed boost before Liverpool

Ahead of the Liverpool game, Arsenal have been handed some good news.

However, it does not come from their own squad, but rather news from the Liverpool camp.

Mohamed Salah picked up an injury during the AFCON and though Egypt are now out of the competition, Salah remains on the sidelines. A recent update from Jurgen Klopp also confirmed, in a boost to Arsenal, that Salah will not be fit for Sunday:

“[Salah’s] not ready for the next game against Arsenal… and then not. So he’s injured. I’m not sure if there was a misunderstanding in the beginning,” Klopp said.

“He’s injured and a muscle injury takes time. It could have been much worse, but he’s not available at the moment. He’s just doing his rehab.”
