Jurgen Klopp reveals Mohamed Salah injury concern after Liverpool beat Leicester City

Leicester City Liverpool Preview

Leicester manager Claude Puel is delighted his side will not have to face Van Dijk, who played for him at Southampton, but he is backing the Dutchman to become a huge success at Anfield. "It will be hard but we still want to win the game and must be ready".

Klopp said:" in his post-match reaction: "It is a maximum satisfaction to win like this today and on ideal days we win football games.

Rotation of the squad will be necessary in both games, but Klopp insists that he'll only have an eye on the Leicester game, and that he'll decide on his Burnley line-up when he knows who is, and who isn't, fit.

Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson will sit out of the encounter as he continues his recovery from a hamstring injury sustained against Swansea.

Liverpool have scored 46 times this season - a feat only bettered by Manchester City (61).

Loris Karius was similarly brought in to the starting XI, with Simon Mignolet dropping to the bench.

Mohamed Salah kept up his stunning form in his debut season for Liverpool, scoring twice in its come-from-behind 2-1 win over Leicester in the Premier League on Saturday.

Klopp praised Liverpool's comeback win as "pretty much perfect" and their reaction was the best he's ever seen in that situation, but he was full of praise for Salah. After showing what he's capable of in front of goal against United last weekend, the Englishman showcased his abilities at the back this time round - for better and for worse. The Egypt global has 23 goals in all competitions this season, which is more than eight Premier League clubs - Crystal Palace, Burnley, Brighton, Swansea, West Bromwich, Huddersfield, Southampton & Newcastle - have managed.

"He keeps scoring and I'm running out of words to describe him". With the likes of Salah, Firmino, Mane and Coutinho at their disposal, it's safe to say Liverpool will win the match 3-1. Despite being in the top-half of the league table, just 10 point separate them from the relegation zone, so this will be as crucial a game as any for the Foxes.
