Mohamed Salah and Andy Robertson drive but double hit confirmed for Liverpool

Mohamed Salah and Andy Robertson are expected to be in shape as Liverpool try to take a step closer to the Premier League title.

The Reds play their first home game in more than three months when they entertained Crystal Palace on Wednesday night.

Salah was an unused substitute in the goalless draw at Everton on Sunday, while Robertson was not part of the 20-man team.

Both had lost the friendly against Blackburn Rovers earlier in the month and were left out of a series of training sessions during the warm-up program before the season resumed.

But when asked about Salah’s fitness, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp said Tuesday afternoon: “(He) trained completely normal yesterday, he will train completely normal today, then he will be available.

“What I’ll do with the lineup then, you’ll have to wait!

“It’s the same with Robbo, he trained completely normal yesterday too, so it’s the same.”

Klopp is like making a series of trade-offs with James Milner and Joel Matip, who limped off at Goodison with hamstring and toe injuries respectively, both unavailable.

“The two boys, Millie and Joel, will not be available for tomorrow,” the Reds boss confirmed.

“We have to determine exactly how long it will take, but tomorrow they don’t play.”

Gini Wijnaldum could enter midfield with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain also pushing to start.
