Mohamed Salah and Virgil van Dijk force Liverpool injury in FA Cup final against Chelsea | Football news

Mohamed Salah was forced to leave with what looked like a weakness injury when Liverpool won the FA Cup final against Chelsea, while Virgil van Dijk finished 90 minutes but did not return to overtime.

Salah sat down on the pitch after half an hour and kept his weaknesses, and despite getting to his feet, he left to be replaced by Diogo Jota – who scored 23 goals for the club and the country this season.

Van Dijk was dismissed before the extension began, with Joel Matip stepping in his absence and being told ITV after the match: “We’re going to check it out. I felt in the first half when I sprinted, I felt armor behind my knees, I continued to play.

“In the end, I can’t risk it for the team and I need to trust Joel. Let’s hope it’s okay.”

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp answered the question about Salah’s condition ITV: “I think Mo’s a little worse than Virg, she’s fine. He felt a little. I hope she’ll be fine. We have a team.”

Van Dijk seemed to be in a good mood after the match, but he danced in the locker room with the FA Cup while his teammates sang his name.

Midfielder Fabinho was completely left out due to a thigh tendon injury he suffered against Aston Ville in the middle of the week.

Liverpool won the match 6: 5 on penalty kicks after a 0-0 draw in 120 minutes.

The Klopp team awaits the key matches of this year’s Champions League final in Paris on May 28, as well as the remaining Premier League matches on Tuesday in Southampton and the final match against the Wolves at Anfield on May 22.

The striker has scored 30 goals for Liverpool as well as two for Egypt this term and is a key part of The Reds’ historic quadruple.

In February, the 29-year-old scored twice and assisted in another 6-0 victory over battling Leeds, increasing his goals to 160 – a new record for an African Premier League player.

Salah has yet to commit to its long-term future in Anfield, while its contractual situation is being negotiated – the current contract of the Egyptian representative will expire in 2023.
