Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp played down fears of more injury woe for Mohamed Salah after the forward failed to complete all 90 minutes of Sunday’s agonising victory over Tottenham.
Salah scored the match-winning penalty but experienced discomfort with his ankle in the final minutes.
Liverpool medics administered treatment but it proved the end of Salah’s afternoon, as he was taken off by Klopp for Joe Gomez.
The striker was able to leave the pitch without limping and, after the final whistle, his manager moved to dispel concerns of further fitness problems.
“It’s not a massive issue,” the German told Sky Sports , while acknowledging that a “sore ankle” had prompted Salah’s withdrawal.
“Virgil [van Dijk] got a dead leg. Mo is the same ankle, it just gets sore the longer the game goes on.
“It’s not a massive issue, that will disappear one day, but it’s still a bit there at the moment.”
