On his 28th birthday, Egypt’s star winger Mohamed Salah gave the happy news to Liverpool fans that he was declared fit for the Everton game next Sunday in the Reds' Premier League, which is back following a three-month break due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Salah missed last week's friendly game due to a minor injury, which was a major concern for Liverpool. However, Salah featured in an inter-squad friendly game on Sunday, according to the Mirror.

The Pharaohs talisman was in stellar form before the break, scoring 20 goals and providing eight assists across all competitions.

Liverpool, who lead the table with 82 points after 29 matches, need just six points to secure their first Premier League title in 30 years, and they could be celebrating on Sunday if second-placed Manchester City lose to Arsenal on Wednesday.

Coach Jurgen Klopp will also welcome the return of left back Andy Robertson, who was also rested for Blackburn's game.

Mo will be hoping to resume his scoring form as he is aiming for a third straight Golden boot. He has scored 16 Premier League goals so far, three behind leading scorer Jamie Vardy.
