Trent Alexander-Arnold, Dominik Szoboszlai, Mohamed Salah - Liverpool injury news and return dates


Mohamed Salah looks set to be involved in Liverpool's squad for Saturday's Premier League trip to Brentford after making a return to team training on Tuesday.

The 31-year-old forward has been out of action since pulling up with a hamstring injury in Egypt's 2-2 draw with Ghana on January 18. He hasn't featured for Liverpool since the 4-2 thrashing of Newcastle United at Anfield on New Year's Day.

Now, though, after returning to team training on Tuesday, he could make his first Reds appearance in six weeks at the G-Tech Community Stadium on Saturday.

Mohamed Salah
If all goes well between now and Saturday, Salah should be part of Liverpool's travelling contingent that takes to West London over the weekend. Salah took part in team training at Kirkby on Tuesday and was involved in rondos at the AXA Training Centre.

Should he return, it would be a timely boost for the Reds, who face Chelsea at Wembley in the 2024 League Cup just eight days later.

Expected return date: Brentford (A), February 17

Trent Alexander-Arnold
Alexander-Arnold is set for a race against the clock to be fit for the League Cup final later this month after Jurgen Klopp confirmed the defender had suffered a recurrence of the knee injury he sustained against Arsenal last month.

On Monday, the ECHO reported that Alexander-Arnold was still awaiting the result of a scan in the aftermath of being withdrawn at half-time against Burnley on Saturday.

The No.66 was, as expected, not involved in team training at the AXA Training Centre on Tuesday afternoon.

Expected return date: Unknown

Dominik Szoboszlai
The Hungarian midfielder has missed Liverpool's last two matches with an aggravation of the hamstring injury that sidelined him after the Reds' 4-2 win over Newcastle on New Year's Day. Now, the number 8 is in a race against time to be fit for the Carabao Cup final against Chelsea on February 25.

Klopp said: “Dom is running outside at the moment, in the winter rain, and is not ready for tomorrow, of course not. Then we have to see. It’s like it always is with these tendon things; pretty quickly the player is pain-free, and then it’s all about... it’s muscle, [and] it’s pretty much the same that he had before.

That’s obviously really not good that he got that again. He didn’t feel a great issue, but when you see then the pictures, you just have to take him out and now we are fighting for days, if you want. Is it Brentford, is it the [Carabao Cup] final or is it after the final? I don’t know in the moment.”

Expected return date: Unknown
