Liverpool fans have got the Mohamed Salah update they were hoping for.
The Egyptian winger limped out of their Champions League quarter final first leg victory over Manchester City at Anfield tonight with what looked like a groin injury.
He’d opened the scoring in the first half before crossing for Sadio Mane to score shortly after and add to Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain’s second goal.
But Salah lasted just eight minutes of the second half before being replaced by Gini Wijnaldum.
And after heading straight down the tunnel, fans were immediately plunged into panic mode.
However, Egyptian reporter Tarek Talaat provided a positive update straight after the full-time whistle:
BREAKING: @tarektal3at reports that Mo Salah felt slight pain in his groin and should be fine. Precautionary.

That’s exactly what Liverpool fans will be wanting to read after such a big 3-0 victory over City – and ahead of two big games against Everton and City coming up.
The Merseyside derby comes quick on Saturday afternoon before Liverpool travel to City next week looking to protect their 3-0 lead from the first leg tonight.
Will they have Salah for both? It remains to be seen, but this update will have fans confident.
