Mohamed Salah injury blow as Liverpool forward substituted in FA Cup final against Chelsea
Liverpool have suffered a fresh injury setback after Mohamed Salah limped off during the FA Cup final with Chelsea at Wembley.
The forward went down after just 30 minutes at the home of English football - despite having no one around him, and was seen clutching his leg.
After receiving treatment on the pitch, Salah limped off and was replaced by Diogo Jota. Although Salah looked as though he wanted to play on at one point, but Reds physio Chris Morgan appeared to suggest his afternoon’s work was done.

It was suggested after going off that the forward might have suffered a groin injury. That, however, was just speculative, with Jurgen Klopp set to offer an injury update after the final whistle at Wembley.
The injury leaves Liverpool sweating on Salah’s fitness for the final week of the season as they continue to challenge for an unprecedented quadruple.
Klopp’s men are next in action on Tuesday when they take on Southampton in the Premier League at St Mary's. The Reds then face Wolves at Anfield before the Champions League final against Real Madrid in Paris at the end of the month.
