Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp described Mohamed Salah as a tough cookie and revealed that the forward is ready to train ahead of their crunch meeting against Arsenal in the Premier League. The Egyptian was substituted just minutes after scoring from the penalty spot in their 2-0 win against Brighton. He missed training on Monday but has now recovered and will join the squad for their next training session. Liverpool finds themselves just four points behind leaders Manchester City with a game in hand.

“It looks like Mo is a tough cookie. We were quite lucky with it,” Jurgen Klopp said about Mohamed Salah. “It was swollen and painful but yesterday a little less swollen, less painful. I got a message before the press conference that he is ready to train and we will see how it looks. I’m not on Twitter – another good reason for that. The last thing I want to do in a press conference is to create headlines but I don’t know about any kind of reactions or stuff like this. That’s not what I’m concerned about. The decisive parties are in contact and we will see.”

“That’s the plan, of course, to keep being as annoying as possible,” he added. “We have to win our football games. We’re very ambitious and determined to do great stuff, but we respect a lot for how good they are. We respect even more all the other teams we will face. There are a few really tough ones. Each Premier League game is tough but a few are especially tough and one of them we play tomorrow night. I’m sitting here and if I was to say ‘we will win 10 games, that doesn’t sound very likely, but as long as it’s possible we will give it a proper try, I can tell you.”
