Liverpool have been handed a boost with Mohamed Salah set to face title rivals Chelsea before proceeding to the 2022 Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon.
According to Mirror Football, the 29-year-old was likely to miss out on a return to his former club due to his participation in next month’s Africa Cup of Nations.
Egypt will kick off their Afcon campaign against Nigeria on January 11, just nine days after the Reds’ trip to Stamford Bridge.
However, Liverpool have struck an agreement with the Egyptian FA to release Salah immediately after their clash with Thomas Tuchel’s men.
And so the prolific winger will be available to Jurgen Klopp for what could be a vital fixture in the Premier League title race.
