Big blow for the Reds

Liverpool stars Mohamed Salah and Andy Robertson are set to miss the clash with Crystal Palace this weekend after failing to overcome ankle injuries.

Starting with Salah, the Egyptian has been an incredibly important player for Liverpool over the past few seasons.

He’s also impressed again this season, scoring six goals in 11 Premier League appearances.

Meanwhile, Andy Robertson has been a pivotal part of both Liverpool’s attack and defence.

While he’s been relatively solid defending his own goal, he’s also already racked up four assists and one goal during this Premier League season.

It goes to show just how important both players have been for Liverpool, with the Reds now eight points clear at the top of the table.

A win over Palace could even see them extend their lead even further, with Manchester City facing a tough task against Frank Lampard’s Chelsea.

However, Liverpool are set to be without both Salah and Robertson this weekend.

Salah & Robertson set to miss out – Sky

According to Sky Sports, Salah and Robertson are set to miss the clash with Crystal Palace.

Both players suffered injuries before the international break and neither joined up with their respective nations in a bid to recover at Liverpool.

According to Sky’s report, ‘the trip to Selhurst Park looks to have come too soon’ with Salah and Robertson ‘failing to recover from ankle injuries.’

Meanwhile, they report Joel Matip is likely to miss the game and both Jordan Henderson and Joe Gomez could feature.

Jurgen Klopp’s pre-Palace press conference will likely give us a better idea of the Salah and Robertson’s fitness.
