Reigning European champions Liverpool have received a major boost on the injury front ahead of the upcoming Champions League clash with Belgian top flight outfit Genk.

Liverpool have been boosted by the return to training of star player Mohamed Salah ahead of the Genk game on Wednesday night.

The Egyptian international has been able to recover from the ankle injury that he sustained just before the recently concluded international break.

Salah copped the ankle injury after a tackle from Leicester City midfielder Hamza Choudhury during the second half of the game which ended in a 2-1 home win for Liverpool courtesy the late strike from Liverpool vice-captain James Milner on the stroke of full-time.

The ankle injury forced Mohamed Salah to miss the Premier League clash between the Reds and Manchester United.

Without Salah in the Liverpool team, the Premier League leaders dropped points for the first time in the league this season.

Mohamed Salah played the previous eight games for Liverpool in the Premier League this season and they all ended in victories.

Manchester United were well on their way to a big win over a Liverpool team without Mohamed Salah before substitute Adam Lallana rescued the Reds with a late goal to secure a 1-1 draw.
