Liverpool face 10-game Mohamed Salah headache that may force January signings

Klopp would likely rest Salah for his side’s FA Cup encounters unless they are drawn against a fellow big side, after he scored twice in the fourth round away at Manchester United earlier this year.

It is unknown whether the Ballon d’Or nominee would be risked for the Carabao Cup semi-final if he was available for the Merseyside outfit anyway.

The last time Liverpool made it that far, in the 2016/17 season, Salah was still plying his trade for Roma and Klopp generally does not field strong sides in the competition.

Whether or not Salah would be named in Liverpool’s cup sides, his absence in the Premier League could be significant – the six encounters equate to nearly one-sixth of the season.

And Liverpool will be handed the double whammy of losing another star forward for the same run of games, with Sadio Mane also set to link up with Senegal for the tournament.
