Liverpool's Egyptian winger Mohamed Salah is on the verge of returning to full fitness, having re-joined trainings on Tuesday for the first time since his injury earlier this month, just before the international break.

The 27-year-old sustained an ankle injury during a Premier League game against Leicester City on 5 October after taking a knock in a nasty challenge from Leicester midfielder Hamza Choudhury.

Liverpool posted photos of the team's training on Tuesday that show Salah training alone under the guidance of the team's medical staff.

Local UK media reported that the Egyptian winger could be fit for Sunday's clash against Manchester United at Old Trafford.  

Salah has scored four goals in eight appearances with Liverpool in the Premier League so far.

Liverpool, who are bidding for their first league title since 1990, are at the top of the Premier League table with 24 points, eight points ahead of second-placed Manchester City.
