Liverpool had to do without attackers Salah in the final against Chelsea after just over half an hour. The Egyptian was saddened by the ground in the center circle, shortly afterwards he had to go from the field under tears and apparently injured on the bar. For him, Diogo Jota came into the game in the 33rd minute.
Salah’s reactions after the game. The 29-year-old posed with Sadio Mané and “doppelganger” Thiago Alcantara for jubilee photos after his colleagues won the title in a penalty thriller. Maybe the injury is not quite as serious.
Virgil van Dijk was also replaced at the beginning of the extension, coach Jürgen Klopp commented on both personal details: “I think Salah’s case is a bit worse than that of Virgil. Van Dijk has felt something and I think that he is fit for Paris again will be.” Salah himself replied with a “natural” when asked whether he would be there in the final.
This would be important for Liverpool, after all, in addition to the mentioned Champions League final against Real Madrid on May 28th, important league games for the Reds are also pending: on Tuesday in Southampton and the following Sunday against Wolverhampton in the league, with the League Cup and FA Cup winner must hope for Manchester City slips.
