Mo Salah expected to win fitness race in time for Liverpool's trip to Manchester United
Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah sustained a twisted ankle in Saturday's late victory over Leicester but has a fortnight to regain his fitness before their next match at Manchester United.
Scans over the weekend revealed the Egyptian, who had already been excused from international duty against Botswana next Monday to ease his workload, had escaped serious injury and the player will continue to receive treatment this week.
However, Liverpool insist it is too early to say whether he will be fit for the trip to Old Trafford on October 20.
Salah was forced off in the 2-1 win over the Foxes after being caught on the left ankle by an ugly-looking lunge from Hamza Choudhury, which resulted in the Leicester substitute being booked.
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp branded the challenge "dangerous as hell" and Salah left Anfield on Saturday limping significantly.
