Liverpool injury update

Here is the latest Liverpool news ahead of their meeting with Burnley.

Mohamed Salah was injured at the Africa Cup of Nations last month and continues to work on his recovery from a thigh injury.

Speaking on Salah, Jurgen Klopp said recently: “Mo is not ready for this game [against Chelsea on January 31], not ready for the next game and then not.

“He is injured, I’m not sure if that was a misunderstanding in the beginning. He is injured and a muscle injury takes time. It could have been much worse but he is not available in the moment, he is just doing his rehab.”

Dominik Szoboszlai made his return from a hamstring injury in the 4-1 win over Chelsea last month but was ruled out of the Arsenal game due to a similar problem.

“Dom felt in the same area, or pretty much a similar area, to where he was injured before,” Klopp said on Sunday.

“Not in the game, he was fine, and then after the game [he felt it] slightly so we had a look at it and there was now no chance for him to be involved in this game. We cannot take any risk. We have to wait for further assessment but it was clear that he cannot be involved today. That’s it, pretty much.”

Finally, Klopp is hopeful Stefan Bajcetic will be able to return to training this month:

“They [Thiago and Bajcetic] will not be ready for the end of this month,” said Klopp at the start of January. “It will probably be going into the next month to train with us. But both [with] no complications, progressing.”
