Jurgen Klopp gives Mohamed Salah update as Virgil van Dijk substitute explained

By Tom Blow

Jurgen Klopp hopes Mohamed Salah will play again this season after he limped out of Liverpool's FA Cup final victory against Chelsea on Saturday afternoon.

The Egyptian was forced out of the showpiece event at Wembley in the 33rd minute, appearing to suffer a groin injury. He didn't seem to be in too much discomfort and managed to walk off the pitch - without limping - before receiving treatment.

Liverpool went on to win their first FA Cup win in 16 years following a dramatic penalty shootout. Sadio Mane had the chance to win the cup but missed, at which point Reds fans feared the worst. But Mason Mount's miss allowed Kostas Tsimikas to get the job done.

"Mo came and he said he could carry on, but I felt a little thing," Klopp told ITV when asked about Salah's injury. "I hope he will be fine."

Virgil van Dijk was also forced out of the game at the end of normal time. Like Salah, he didn't appear to have a serious complaint. Klopp has confirmed the Dutchman "had little problems" but also believes he is "fine" and will play again this term.

Van Dijk added: "Hopefully well, we’re going to check it out. I felt in the first half when I sprinted, I felt a twinge behind my knee, I played on. In the end, I can’t risk it for the team and I need to trust Joel. Hopefully it will be fine."

Did Liverpool deserve to win the FA Cup final? Let us know in the comments below!

Klopp's side can still become the first English team to win the Premier League, Champions League, FA Cup and EFL Cup in the same season. They've already lifted the latter two and have reached a European final, where they'll face Real Madrid on May 28.

Liverpool's chances of winning the Premier League remain slim. Manchester City can move six points clear at the top of the table with victory against West Ham at the London Stadium tomorrow. Liverpool's next league game is against Southampton on Tuesday.

"Outstanding, it was an incredible, intense game against Chelsea – they would have deserved it [the win] exactly the same way, like in the Carabao Cup – that’s how small the margins are," Klopp told BBC Two at full-time.

"I couldn’t be more proud of my boys, the shift they put in, how hard they fought, early changes... "all of these things, missing good chances, overcoming good moments from Chelsea, then having really good moments ourselves.

"Then in the penalty shootout, it was nerve-racking, my nails are gone but I really feel for Chelsea – for the second time, 120 minutes and you get nothing, that’s too hard. But for us I’m pretty happy.

"We are mentality monsters but there were mentality monsters in blue as well – it was one penalty. Chelsea played outstanding but in the end there must be one winner and that was us today."
