Mohamed Salah scores from a corner, then limps off injured

Salah missed just two matches for Liverpool last season because of minor groin complaints, although Klopp now has Xherdan Shaqiri as back up in wide positions.

Salah was substituted in the dying embers of the Pharaohs' African Nations Cup qualifying victory against Swaziland.

Salah was injured in the 88th minute of the Africa Cup of Nations qualifier, and had to be treated on the sideline before he returned to the match.

Liverpool fans would have been encouraged after Salah found the net for his country in incredible style, albeit against a side ranked 136th in the Federation Internationale de Football Association rankings.

"[The] initial diagnosis of the medical staff of [the] Egypt national team is that Salah suffered a muscular injury", Ramzy told BeIN Sports.

Michel Barnier, the EU's chief Brexit negotiator, gave a speech saying that a deal could be done as early as next week. But even if her Brexit plan survives the meaningful vote, MPs could still insist the public be given a final say.

Salah hasn't scored for Liverpool since September 22, something of a slump after his 44 goals in a blistering debut season at Anfield last season.

Liverpool entered the worldwide break third in the Premier League, level on points with Manchester City and Chelsea but behind them by virtue of their slightly inferior goal difference.

He was on the score sheet again for his country though when his corner beat everyone to put Egypt 4-0 up against Swaziland a minute before halftime in their qualifier in Cairo.

"What I like about Mo Salah is that his work ethic is brilliant, he doesn't shy away from anything".

The game would end 4-1 to Salah and co, a result which sees them go level on points with Group J leaders Tunisia.
