Klopp offers update on Salah fitness ahead of Man City tie

Although Liverpool holds a 3-0 aggregate going into the Etihad Stadium tie, Klopp said the Reds would still look to win the second leg.

Salah has been their best player this year and leads the Premier League scoring charts, but he is now nursing a groin injury. But the Egyptian limped off injured early in the second half, and Klopp remained coy over whether Salah will be fit to return having missed Saturday's 0-0 draw at Everton.

"He was yesterday with the athletic coach, training".

"We will see in five hours until we train and we'll know who is involved in that".

Salah sustained a suspected groin injury in the club's 3-0 humbling of runaway Premier League leaders in the first leg of the continent's elite competition last week.

He said: "I am not interested (in the favourites tag)".

"Dominic Solanke and Dany Ings have barely started a game all season and they were thrown into Klopp's line-up against Everton simply because Klopp didn't have any other options in reserve". They had two results which maybe no-one really expected.

The attacker also impressed at Anfield during the first leg, scoring Liverpool's opening goal of the game.

"It is clear they would be outstanding but there is no ideal football team in the world".

'We have always to wait until the last minute especially when you only have these short breaks between games.

"We are not thinking about who is favourite".

"City has the chance to".

If Liverpool can add a few more high-quality players to the squad in the summer, ideally a goalkeeper, a centre-back and a centre-midfielder, they may have everything they need to finally lift the Premier League trophy.
