Liverpool attacker Mohamed Salah should be fit for the away game at Manchester United in the Premier League according to club teammate Virgil Van Dijk.

Manchester United and Liverpool meet in the league after the international break and Mohamed Salah is already a big doubt for the game billed for the Theatre of Dreams.

Salah suffered an ankle injury during the league win over Leicester City at the weekend.

The Egyptian international was injured from the challenge made by a Leicester City midfielder towards the end of the Premier League game which Liverpool won 2-1 courtesy a last-minute penalty from James Milner.

Mohamed Salah was tackled while he was with the ball on speed during a Liverpool counterattack.

Virgil Van Dijk spoke to Sky Sports about the injury suffered by the Egyptian international.

According to the Dutch centre back, Salah has a lot of time to recover before the next league game at Old Trafford later this month.

Mohamed Salah was left out of the Egyptian national team squad for the upcoming international games.

He had been left out of the squad even before his injury against Leicester City on Saturday afternoon.

Mohamed Salah is expected to take his place in the Liverpool attack when they face the Red Devils.
