"He had time out already. In the last international break he did not play for Egypt, he didn’t start at Stoke, we take him off as soon as possible. That’s how it is," Klopp was quoted as saying by the Liverpool Echo.

"I am not sure he played a lot more minutes than other players in our team, but it is true he starts often. It’s because he is in a very, very good moment and it is difficult to think about leaving him out."

"He is always a natural fit player. We talk a lot to the medical department and it is really rare that any issues with him."

Salah is the league’s top scorer with 13 goals in 17 games for sixth-placed Liverpool, who travel to face Bournemouth later on Sunday.
