• Liverpool have won eight games in a row in the Premier League
  • The Reds recently defeated Brighton 2-0
  • Liverpool will next take on Arsenal in London

Mohamed Salah is likely to be fit for Liverpool FC's important tie with Arsenal in the Premier League on Wednesday.

Salah suffered a foot injury during Liverpool's 2-0 win over Brighton at Amex Stadium on Saturday. Just minutes after scoring his side's second goal, Salah was substituted. Following a session with the medical team, the Egyptian forward missed Liverpool's team training Monday.

However, in a pre-match conference ahead of the Arsenal clash, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp confirmed Salah was given a green signal to train.

When reporters asked Klopp about Salah's availability, the German head coach replied, "Looks like. Mo is a tough cookie and he was only a little bit cut, we were quite lucky with it. It was swollen, painful, yesterday a little less swollen, less painful. Now I got the message before the press conference that Mo is ready to train and we will see how that looks."

Along with Salah, left-back Kostas Tsimikas and midfielder James Milner were also missing from the training Monday. The Liverpool boss revealed the duo would not be a part of the side traveling to London for the Arsenal game, while center-back Ibrahima Konate would be available.

"Ibou is back. Millie and Kostas, I understand at this moment, are out, and that's it," added Klopp.

Liverpool have 66 points from 28 games in the 2021-22 Premier League with a match in hand. Their title rivals Manchester City dropped points this week when Crystal Palace held them at a 1-1 draw.

A win over Arsenal would put Liverpool just one point behind the reigning champions. Moreover, Liverpool and Man City are due to face off against each other at Etihad Stadium next month. The result was a 2-2 draw when they met the last time, thanks to Kevin de Bruyne's late goal for Pep Guardiola's men.

Salah's inclusion for the Arsenal game is a massive boost for Klopp's side. The former Roma forward has been in a fiery form, scoring 28 goals and 10 assists in 35 competitive matches for Liverpool. He is also the leading goal scorer in the league this season with 20 goals.

In Liverpool's Premier League history, only Steven Gerrard (212 - 120 goals, 92 assists) has had a direct hand in more goals for the club than Mohamed Salah (158 - 115 goals, 43 assists), according to Opta Joe.

The Reds, who are aiming to win their second league title, are having a fine run in the competition. The Anfield side is on a streak of eight consecutive wins, while they have been unbeaten in as many as 17 matches.
