Mohamed Salah is expected to be fit enough to play against Arsenal on Saturday.

The Egyptian winger was pictured with a cast on his right hand in training on Wednesday, leading to speculation that the 2017-18 Golden Boot winner may be ruled out of Liverpool’s match with the Gunners.

It is understood that the forward’s issue is a minor one and he remains in contention for Saturday after playing a full part in yesterday’s session.

Although fears have been eased over Salah, Jurgen Klopp still faces a wait on the fitness of Naby Keita and Jordan Henderson.

The pair missed last week’s back-to-back wins over Red Star Belgrade and Cardiff City due to hamstring issues, and were unable to join the main group in training.

Arsenal will need to find a way of containing the 26-year-old, and injuries to left-backs Nacho Monreal and Sead Kolasinac will likely complicate matters.
