Liverpool's Mohamed Salah avoids serious injury after Hamza Choudhury tackle

An angry Jurgen Klopp says Hazma Choudry should have been sent off for his tackle on Mohamed Salah.
Steve Nicol says Liverpool deserved the win against Leicester despite the sides being level for 94 minutes.

Mohamed Salah suffered a twisted ankle in Liverpool's 2-1 victory over Leicester City on Saturday, with scans revealing no further damage to the forward.

The Egypt international limped off on 89 minutes at Anfield after a wild challenge from behind by Hamza Choudhury, which Jurgen Klopp labelled "dangerous as hell."

Assessments were carried out at Melwood on Sunday and to Liverpool's relief, no major concerns were flagged by the medical staff.

Salah will continue to be monitored and treated at the training complex during the international break with the club declining to rule him in or out of the clash against Manchester United on Oct. 20 as it is too early in the healing process.

With 13 days to recover, the 27-year-old is likely to line up against struggling United, who are already 15 points adrift of Liverpool.

Salah had already been excused from the Egypt squad for the friendly against Botswana next week prior to his injury.

"The technical team of the national team confirms the decision to exempt Liverpool star Mohamed Salah from joining the current camp for the desire to rest him and ease the burden of games in this period," a statement from the Egyptian football federation read.

"[That is] in order [for him] to recover and get rid of the stress resulting from his successive participation with his club so that he is in full physical and mental health to participate in the next official commitments."
