Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp revealed that Egyptian winger Mohamed Salah sustained a knock after scoring twice in the 2-1 win over Leicester City at Anfield in the English Premier League on Saturday.

The 25-year-old winger appeared to be limping in the final stages after helping Liverpool come from behind with a superbly-taken double. He was substituted seven minutes before the whistle.

"Salah will need to be checked by the club’s medical team to see if he can be involved against Burnley in less than 48 hours’ time," Klopp told the post game's press conference.

"I don’t know in this moment exactly [what it is], but he was limping. That’s never a good sign, to be honest.

"We have to see what his problem was. We will see what he can do for the next game," he added. 

Salah took his tally to 17 league goals, just one behind Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane who tops the competition's scoring charts.
