Egypt's winger Mohamed Salah is a doubt for Liverpool's FA Cup game against Everton on Friday as he hasn't fully recovered from his injury.

The 25-year old international missed Monday's victory at Burnley 2-1, alongside with Philippe Coutinho, due to their respective minor groin and thigh injuries.

"Phil are Mo are injured, not massively but enough for today [to be] no chance. And [they are] a doubt, at least a doubt, for Everton,” Liverpool coach Jürgen Klopp said after the game.

They will need assessment ahead of the Merseyside derby.

Salah has been Liverpool's deadliest weapon so far scoring 23 goals in 28 games in all competitions.
