Jurgen Klopp will not risk Mohamed Salah in Merseyside derby

Egyptian star Mohamed Salah has been nominated for the UEFA Champions League Player of the Week award after Liverpool's win over Manchester City on Wednesday.

The German also used the opportunity to again express his displeasure that the Premier League moved forward Liverpool's next game against Everton from Sunday to Saturday despite the midweek Champions League game.

The 25-year-old winger reportedly told his boss that it was nothing to worry about. "He said to me immediately after the game: "all fine, all good" I hope that's the case, we need to wait and hope".

"Conor was last year in the U-18s and is in his first year with the U-23s - (he is) still a very young lad". Afterwards, he said he feels good, "I will be fine". We come into the stadium and the first thing I heard was they had smashed the bus of Manchester City and it kills everything.

Syria war: Jets strike rebel-held Eastern Ghouta as evacuation stalls
State media denied the reports saying "such farces about chemical weapons" were triggered by the troops' quick push toward Douma. The air and ground offensive on Eastern Ghouta has killed more than 1,600 civilians and caused an global outcry.

"But I would not rest a player with absolutely nothing, because we are used to playing every three days, that's not the problem".

Unusually for Klopp he would not elaborate on the fitness of his injured players but insisted he was not in the business of holding anyone back for next week's second leg.

Mohamed Salah posted a picture himself in an oxygen chamber on Thursday as he bids to overcome injury in time for Saturday's Merseyside derby against Everton and the Champions League quarterfinal second leg against Manchester City on Tuesday. That's not possible. I don't think our supporters want that.

"Because that will be really tough [for Salah to face Everton], and probably Everton are more happy about the game [time] than we are, and that's not fair".
