Salah goes to the end of the race for top scorer with SON
Liverpool, convinced of Mohamed Salah’s complete recovery, did not conduct a thorough examination. The competition for the top scorer in the English Premier League (EPL) against Son Heung-min (Tottenham Hotspur) is expected to go to the end.
“Liverpool has not conducted a thorough examination of Salah and is optimistic about the current situation,” the British media Anfield Watch said on the 16th.
Liverpool won the penalty shootout 6-5 at Wembley Stadium in London, England, at 0:45 a.m. on the 15th after an extended match in the 2021/2022 season FA Cup final. However, during the game, Salah was hit by a bad news that he collapsed due to an injury. Salah, who collapsed due to a muscle injury, looked in poor condition.
Every game was important because it was fiercely competing with Son Heung-min as the top scorer. As Liverpool is set to play in the UEFA Champions League final, Salah is unlikely to play in the rest of the EPL.
Fortunately, Salah is known to have avoided serious injuries. Liverpool, optimistic about Salah’s physical condition, has not conducted a thorough examination and will continue to check Salah’s injury only if he continues to complain of pain, according to Anfield Watch.
Initially, Liverpool tried to bet everything on the Champions League rather than EPL. However, as Manchester City won a 2-2 draw with West Ham United, they have no choice but to show their greed to win the EPL.
In addition to Salah, Virgil van Dijk is the same. Van Dijk felt pain in his knee during the match against Chelsea and was replaced ahead of extra time, but Liverpool did not conduct a thorough examination of van Dijk. Under the current situation, both Salah and Van Dijk are likely to play in the remaining games.
