Mohamed Salah is a doubt for Liverpool’s meeting with Luton on Wednesday night as he works his way back to match fitness.

The Reds have a long list of injury worries at the moment, with the likes of Trent Alexander-Arnold, Alisson Becker, Dominik Szoboszlai and Diogo Jota injuries all confirmed as huge blows to Jurgen Klopp’s plans.

Curtis Jones, Thiago Alcantara and Joel Matip are all also sidelined, while there are doubts over Salah and Darwin Nunez for the meeting with the Hatters at Anfield.

‘He [Nunez] felt that in that game and there was nothing around. We go day by day. It is day by day as well with Mo,’ Klopp said of a knock to Nunez and Salah’s fatigue as he recovers from a hamstring problem.

‘It’s a similar area where he feels it a little bit. We have to see how it develops. It’s nothing crazy, but we have to see.’

It may be a makeshift team that face Luton on Wednesday and not exactly Klopp’s first choice XI against Chelsea in the Carabao Cup final at the weekend, but the German hopes that performance levels will not drop.

‘Whatever line up we have [vs Luton], I want people not to be in a situation where they are like, 2oh he’s out, he’s out, he’s out” because a couple of players will be out that is definitely the case. A few players will be out,’ he said.

‘It is bad luck yes but it is absolutely our job tomorrow night to be as strong as possible and if we play at home I have to ask for the support. If we are in a good mood and go for it but the crowd thinks, ‘Yes but he would have scored there’ then that is a problem.

‘Whoever plays will run his socks off that is clear. There are 5,000 different ways to win a football game and we only have to find one. That should always be possible, especially at home where we can generate a dynamic where people can grow above themselves, that you really can be the best version of yourself.

‘Who then cares about the number on your back or the position you play? It’s actually not important, it’s just what can you contribute, what can you bring to the team. If we didn’t know that before, we’ve learned that this year 100 per cent.’
